Default shopping for rims

im looking at various places online for rims and noticed that when you enter your vehicle information, it matters whether for me whether its a SE/LE or SSE when showing rims that would fit. I was wondering if anyone knew why they did that? do the SE and SSE have different wheel well sizes or something?
This is the one i like so far in my search and it appears in both SE sections and SSE section so i dont know whats up. : http://www.tirerack.com/servlet/Call...filterSpecial=

I didn't think there was any difference in sizes. Have you tried "lying" to see if the give you different options?

By the way, your link is cookie based. Need to see if there is a direct link to the product.

I also didnt think that there would be a difference. I did "lie" to see what wsa the difference and it just had about half the selection that the SSE had.
One of these links should work, it is the Borbet Type E :

Those rims would look nice on your car!! Too bad they don't let you pick a color
