it says these rims will fit and i have two questions about them:

1) is this a good brand or a good rim in general?
2) it says it is a 5X100 bolt pattern but from the looks of it you would only put on four bolts...again i know nothing about this but would this really work?

Says under the picture "Appearance may vary by size and application." The picture's just an example. You'd get 5x100 at stated.

They're a pretty cheap/generic wheel. Probably fine for the average DD.

Hey, Cowboy we just got off of the phone abd hopefully I answered all of your questions were answered. Unfortunately, when I went to look at availability there is not a full set of those wheels left and they are discontinued ... sorry
