Judging by the specs provided it looks like it will fit, but the rear may look a little sunken in.

thanks for the reply!....I really want to make sure that these wheels will fit w/out any rubbing or other fitment issues.

Anyone else have an opinion on these specs?

Randy,
Depending the tire size up front you might have an issue with the strut spring and tire. You are lose half your tire/strut clearance with the 40mm offset and you are a lot taller with the 19" tire.

Hey there, these wheels will definatly fit your car. But the rear will look a little bit sunken into the fender of the car, but with a set of spacers for the rear (and even a small one for the front) they would look perfect. But even without the spacers they will fit fine.

Good luck

My plan is to have the wheels fit w/out the use of spacers. I really want to avoid the use of spacer if possible. If the wheels fit and clear but is aesthetically unpleasing then I'll consider spacers.

Thank you all for the the insightful replies!
