....bullspit.......a 3mm spacer will allow them to fit just fine....but a 16x6.5 is rather pointless for 'summer' use.......winter/offroad mebbe....

I'd rather try to find another set of the '06 17x7's

99-01 16" RS wheels will also work...

The brakes aren't "bigger" in the sense that they are a large diameter, the caliper is just a little too fat...about 2-3 mm too fat

How much do those weigh? I am currently contemplating where to go with this at this point. I lost 4-5MPH in my ET going from stock 17's to Volk LE37A 18's (not the lightest Volk by any means). Wondering if I could pick up more trap speed going down to 16's.

IIRC, the RS wheels were around 18 lbs each.

16.5 for the 00+ six spokes...17 for the older solid 5-spokes...
