To fit any car, the bolt pattern and size, offset, width, and diameter must all be within certain specifications. Then, the wheel must be capable of mounting the TPMS (at least in some places, you won't pass if that is not present). You may already know that, but it's lots more than just the offset that matters if it will fit. First, the bolt pattern is: 5-120, and the rest of the stuff depends very much on the specific wheel as to whether it will fit. It must be able to be bolted on, fit over the calipers, and not put excessive stress on the bearings, and to pass inspection most places, the tire edge at least on part of the wheel must be within the fenderwell when going straight ahead to keep from flinging debris out behind and becoming a hazard for those following. The tire/wheel package chosen must also be within a small variation of the factory package for the gearing, speedometer, and odometer readings to be correct.

If you're lucky, someone here will know, but you might want to check with the wheel manufacturer to see if they will fit.
