Since you have the rims, put them on there and see.

Check the bolt pattern!

The larger hubs on the 05's bumped the bolt pattern from 100 to 114.5 mm!

Also, offset and size alone will not garantee a fit, since not all have the same inside clearance. You will have to test fit to be sure.

but why would you want to put a 17x7 on your '05? '05 comes with 17x8, so it's a major downgrade just fyi...

well not necessarily, because the tire size is still the same...its still 225/45/17, it might be a little right, not to much right?

The other factor is the hub diameter -- if the wheels were on a Subaru, they're probably OK, but with that stretch bolt pattern you cited you'll want the right hub fit for sure. HPH

No... 1 inch is a BIG difference. I wouldn't put 7" on my '04 that came with 7.5" stock. but hey, if you like it, then do whatever you want.

IF he's just useing them for street rims and tires, then it won't matter. I wouldn't do it either, but I am a very aggressive driver and want all my car's handling ability at all times.

Don't forget that the offset is HORRIBLY off from recommended spec. You will suffer torque steering issues as well as shortening the life of your wheel bearings.
