The bolt pattern and offset on your new cars rim, should be the same as something older from the same manufacturer.
If not.....

Idea for ya Art.....instead of trying to find 16 inch black rims, try looking for a set of 15 inch bllack steel rims from an earlier year, or something that will fit that bolt pattern and offset as Butler said.....the tires will be much cheaper too going one rim size smaller, as so will buying the rims too....what kinda car is it?

And if tire height is the same, mileage, engine RPM, and speedo will be unaffected.

thing is the car is totally different compared to older models. the 2009's are a new generation, and i dont think 14's will fit. i think 15's do, but i dont think 14s do

15's are still cheaper then 16's....... :|
