Default how to verify wheels will work?

Well I went to a junk yard and found a set of Speedline wheels that look like these:


They're 16x7 but not sure how to verify it will fit on my car as far as it being 5x100 or what without physically putting them on my car to check. Is there a way to verify without physically putting them on?

check the back of the wheel hub, the specs fo the wheel should be stamped around there.

I'll try to take a closer look when/if I go back. I did see it was stamped 16x7 but couldn't see/maybe didn't look hard enough to see if there was a hub pattern like 5x100 stamped on it. For $100 they're a damn good deal, just have to buy tires to fit over it. Just kinda concerned if they'll fit over my 4pots I'm going to put on the car later is all.

Well I've seen them or similar models of speedlines on plenty of jdm GCs, don't remember if they were on models with 4pots or not. I know for a fact of course the 98-01 RS wheels if they're the gold/silver 5spokes will clear 4pots and there's a set at the same yard, but they're silver. I don't want white on silver. White on gold is the only way to go

16x7? all youre really going to have to check is the spoke clearance on the face of the calipers, rough way to measure it would be to just measure how much the caliper sticks out from the rotor's braking area surface, then take into account the height of the rotor hat and then add that height to the distance between the wheel/hub mating surface and the backside of the wheel spokes...if that measurement is greater than the height of the caliper, the wheels will clear the caliper face.

$100 is an amazing deal. I'd just buy them and use them till you decide to upgrade to 4 pot for whatever reason. If they don't Fit you could easily sell them.
