Look on that page at the lower right hand side.
They have a suggested tire size. There is a link to that.
Here it is just in case:
http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...=17&vid=012221

Yours is listed there. Looks like they SHOULD fit.
Also... you should call them to make sure the offset of the
wheels are where they would fit. I think they will.

I would call them to check.
Phone number is also on their site.
Here it is: 800-589-6789

Hope this helps. Welcome to the forum!

Your welcome. Again welcome to the forum.
You will find it's a great forum and we all try to help one another here.

Yeah the bolt pattern may keep them from fitting.
(We all miss things sometimes, thus why I suggested you calling them to confirm
ALL the details.)

Good catch BA...
Those rims won't work because of the bolt pattern.
They are universal rims with so many holes in them it looks like Swiss cheese,lol.

Looks like they're predominant 4 lugs bolt pattern and were intended for Hondas.
Late model Civic are now 5 lugs so that would explain the 4 and 5 lug option with those.

Try to look on their home page for an option to look up wheels and tires through the year, make and model of the car. This way you wouldn't have to guess.

Oh, and I don't know if you are new to buying wheels for cars or not but you might want to see if you can find out what type of sensors you have on your wheels. If they are band sensors you will have to buy new bands for than likely but if they are valve stem sensors then you "should" be able to reuse them provided you don't break them.

07+ Mustangs have sensors on the wheels and mine were banded so I had to buy new bands even though, from what I know, they should have been valve stem sensors..
