Just a note... that wheel is 49mm offset, 16"x6.5". I believe that the stock for your car is 41mm offset, 16" x 6.5". So, assuming stock tires, the wheel/tire will sit 8mm closer to the strut. Slightly reduced tracking sidth. Probably not an issue with stock tires for rubbing, etc.

It's a 17"x7.5" wheel that came on the 9-3. I'm 99% certain the ET is 41 too. Here are a slew of pictures:

Unfortunately the set (on CL) is now sold. I wasn't sure if I should spring for them, the price was pretty good (C$500) incl. a set of A/S, although the tires were stated to be Sumo Akina ST-09. But the more I looked at that pattern the less I liked it.

Yeah, sorry, been looking at too many wheels lately.

Ken: When good wheels show up on craigslist for a reasonable price, they go quickly. I'd try to figure out all the wheel diameter and offset issues that you can ahead of time so you can strike quickly if the wheel looks good.
