A couple of things to think about:

1)Make sure you have the right lug pattern
2)Make sure to ask if the wheel is hubcentric(thats when you need to have a small pastic ring to make the wheel fit correctly to the car)

I have 17' Axis touring cups and after I got the rings they fit perfectly!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

There is a really good place to go on the web it's www.discounttiredirect.com. Go on there put in your car and it will put up every wheel they have that will fit your car from 15"-18". I found some real nice 5 spoke on there for $100.00 a piece <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

The rims on that site will fit, but they don't take into account the proper offset for our cars. A friend with a WRX ran into a big problem with them, as the stock offset was 10mm difference than what they spec'ed. For the tib though, I think they'll spec a 42mm offset, which is fine.

If your car is 1999, 2000, or 2001, you will have non-captive rotors, and basically most 4 bolt rims will fit. If you have 1997 or 1998, you'll have captive rotors, and most rims will not fit due to the large bolts.
