Default 17" Enkei rims

Ok today i saw some 17" enkei " universal 5 lug " rims with tires. That'* all i know of so far..but does anyone know if the enkei'* will fit?


They are identical to these ..but they are 17" instead of 16" (pic taken from mustang i almost purchased..boo me. )

My dad said he'd help me buy 'em if they fit and he told me to make sure so i figured you'd be the guys to know. I probably need more numbers..we'll see.

Yeah they make those wheels in the 5x115 patter. Check out www.tires.com and you can see them and the their prices. They are called the Enkei 5+ wheels. Right now they are $160.00 w/ free shipping from Discount Tire Direct.

20'* are a very poor choice for performance. 17 is ideal. Hit 18, and you'll start inducing handling and ride quality problems.

performance? oh yeah that............. I like the performace of the bonne, but I side more with the luxury of the car. So with luxury comes a luxury look! what better way (luxury wise) than to put big wheels on a beautiul car like that? but if ur goin for perfomance Wills right, if u wanna turn heads go for tha 20'*
