In short, those rims should fit fine. Don't go by eBay's fitment help, they're always wrong.

thats what i thought but wasnt sure, does anyone else have any input, like good deal, nice wheels, idk lol. they are going on a silver zx3 if that helps, so far my theme on the outside of the car is silver and black so i think these will work. does anyone know if i will have rubbing issues if i put a size 205/40/17 with the offset. i just really dont know all that much about offset, someone wanna school me lol

I like the wheels and should look great with the silver!

The lower the offset, the more the rim sticks out. Lower number=wheel sticks out more. The wheels you want should be within the 38-49 offset range. You should not rub, especially with a 205 width. Good luck!

To keep your overall tire diameter the same, you may want to go with a 215/45 or 205/45, not a 40 series tire. Unless you are looking for a shorter sidewall.

need to add a question here....im looking at a set of wheels that are 16x7 with an offset of +18, would that be super goofy looking ill post a link for them, and if you read above i had 17x9 offset of +24, could anyone give me some insight weather it would look good or not...

A 16" will fit over the brakes in most cases however a +18 offset is extremely aggressive.
