Can you test fit one? It's a possible, but because they're 16" I wouldn't say yes, definitely.

I cannot test fit at the moment. Just not sure if these two parameters are OK.

Hub Opening Diameter 65 mm
Offset 49 mm

I'd like to use these and get a good set of blizzaks for them.

Pretty sure stock offset is 50 mm, so you're pretty damn close there. I can't remember what the center bore is though..

On the ST the stock offset is 55 mm, but it's also on an 8" wide wheel. The 49 mm offset is 6mm less than the stock wheels, and those wheels are 1" narrower. The hub bore being larger is an issue if you don't tighten down the lugs properly, but the biggest risk is clearance to the front calipers with balance weights, especially for alloy wheels in the 16" size.

16" is the minimum requirement, but 17" wheels fit better/ easier.

Hub is 63.35mm, but like said above that's okay as long as you tighten the lugs properly. The variance is too small to get centering rings.

I'm most concerned about caliper clearance.

I think I am going to look for a full set of SE wheels maybe in 17" in a junkyard. Hopefully there is a matching set of 4.

Look for some black pack wheels, I think they look really good on a blue ST.

They look nice on the blue, and to my eyes even better match for my silver ST.
