Default Will these wheels work?

I'm wondering if I would have any issues with this set of wheels on my 93 SE. Will they be too wide for the wheelwell? Please lead me in the proper direction.

p.*. I'm not using the tires, my roomate is using them on a set of wheels he already has, so those are not the issue, just the wheels themselves.

You need to find out the bolt pattern. Yes it'* five lug, but if the holes are spaced wrong, it won't even get as far as worrying about your wheel wells (which if they fit they will clear easily)

You need a 5-115mm lug pattern. Keep up the search and you'll find'em.

What exactly are you looking for? Type of finish, size, price...?

I'm just looking for a spare set of wheels so that i could put a set of sticky tires on my car for autocrossing. My roomate had been looking for tires on ebay and ran across the aforementioned set of wheels and tires, and the deal was if they fit my car, i'd take them off his hands for $100, and he'd keep the tires. I really don't care about style or finish, just as long as they are relatively light, and cheap. A 17" wheel would do nicely, and decently wide.
