there lots of rims that fit, Next time pick a lower offset like et30 to et20 should all fit, if you go much lower you'll probably have the roll the fenders. Or run spacers and longer lug bolts with you current rims that didn't fit, you can fit 17's but with limited tire size options, 16's are the best way to go.

Also make you you get the right hub bore and use hub centric rings if needed
