All the 17" wheels I see have the following
Offset: 40-45mm
Backspacing: 5.5 to about 5.7"
Bolt Pattern: 4-100

Might just want to order them off of tirerack or something. I have ordered stuff from them several times and it has always fit.

If you do plan to buy from them you should use this Link a few % of your purchase will go to supporting this site and my other car forums.

I'm not sure that link will do anything in this case since this site isn't technically approve to use it, but it's probably worth a try anyway.

The tires on the car are great. i have a lot of country driving. I would like a slightly larger tire like a 195/55/15 or maybe a 205. Any input guys?

I am currently running 17 inch wheels with 205/40/17 tyres, there is a bit of difference in the ride but not too much as to make it uncomfortable.

If you make that switch go with the 205 they are usually cheaper and you will have better selection. Mazda is suppose to rune 195s I can never find tires for the thing. The speedometer is actually closer when I run one size over anyway.

Good looking setup if it doesn't rub or bottom out^

No bottoming out or rubbing on mine, even on full lock.

17" Rims fit perfectly but DO NOT lower suspension, the tires will grind against the arches when you turn.

Depends what one wants, if you want looks go on 16'-17' although 17' cause trouble for the car for no reason dont forget we are low cc and HP lets not waste them. Personaly i want performance i dont want to push the car so im with 175/35/15. I only need lowering to increase grip and im really happy with it. ;)
