If it's 4x100.

And your car is 4x100.

Then it'll fit.

It's a VERY common BP.

16x8" wheel however...will look silly without quite the drop and correct camber setting.

Known commonly as the Mexi-poke.

Maybe the eccentric hole is too small though.

I'd get some 17's or 18's. 7-8" wide wheel. LOTS of choices out there with that bolt pattern, especially on CL.

What's CL? Craiglist? And idk really what size. I know I don't want 18s though and 8 might be too wide for my liking. Probably gonna look for like a 16-17 7-7.5. I really like the "BBS" and "rota grid" style wheels though.

Why no 18's?

Tires are just as cheap.

And yes, CL = Craigslist.

...stock wheels are 18's?

They look just fine IMO.

Hub swap it with some stock Sport 17's.
