Those wheels are pretty small. 16x7 ET42 is not really what I'd recommend for your car. 17"-19" wheels look best to me. You can also fit x8.5 in the front and x9.5s in the rear!

Looks like BBS RX's. Came on MKIV Jettas. So most likely they are 5x100 and no good for you in that respect as well.

Forgot to mention the bolt pattern. If they're anything other than 5x120 that's not going to work.

well don't need those anymore either. I found a nice set of wheels in the container at our shop. they say 18x91/jj on the back. so 18 in wheels. don't know the offset but I'll check tomorrow. I wish I could upload pictures but I'm on my phone. they will be up in an hour or 2. their staggered I think. I didn't get to look at all of them. the tires are 255/45/18. I hope they fit!
