Well you better contact the seller quickly to find out the offset, otherwise you will find yourself looking for some spacers and some longer wheel studs just to mount the wheels on your car.

They are ugly IMHO. It does not look good with the "mounting plates" for the spokes on the rim... strange...

from what i can find out it seems to be a 17x 7.5 40mm offset with 225/45ZR/17 tyres


Standard tyre size on the Aussie m6 17 inch is 215/45 R17

Well I can't be entirely sure. BUT I'm pretty sure those will be fine. Even if it does rub you could always roll the fenders.

If the wheel and tire stick out too far with the car lowered. Rolling the fenders will roll the inside edge thus allowing it to fit a wider wheel.

But if you don't lower you won't have to worry about that with a 17 anyways.

I don't see that being a problem. Chances are the backpads can be shaved for a couple of mm if nreeded anyways. But I'd say it'd be fine as is.

they will fit...6 bolt pattern is 5x114.3 and the offset of the stock wheel is 55 for 16" and 60 for 17" use this site for a guesstimate on fitment:
