How do you find out what rims will fit my car?
The two easiest ways are to check the sticker plate in your car, it should be located inside the driver side door, or look online for the vehicle specifications for your exact make and model. That should tell you the standard rim size.
How to Determine your Wheel or Rim Size - Hubcaps.com - YouTube
Fortunately, it's possible to use a replacement wheel from any vehicle. However, you should ensure that that the original wheel has the same bolt pattern, wheel offset, and size of the new one. You can find the right size of the substitute by checking the sticker plate on your door.
As a general rule of thumb, it's safe to fit a tire up to 20 millimeters wider than stock on the original rim. The actual width of the tire will vary depending on the width of the rim: The tire will expand 5 millimeters for every half inch (12.5 millimeters) increase in rim width.
Width and diameter are the two factors that determine tire and rim compatibility. For diameter you'll need to be sure that your tires and wheels are an exact match, e.g. a 215/65R17 tire will only fit on a 17" diameter wheel. There's a bit more flexibility when it comes to wheel widths.
What do rim size numbers mean? This number represents the distance between the two bead seat areas where the tire is sealed onto the wheel. The wheel size also includes its width and offset. The width is the distance from each bead seat (from inside to the outside).
Luckily, measuring rim width is pretty simple to do! Just take a ruler, yardstick or tape measure and measure the distance from bead seat to bead seat. The rim width is also included in the wheel size, which you can find stamped on the back of the wheel, or in your owner's manual.

Do 5 lug universal rims fit all 5 lug cars? There's no such thing about a wheel being universal and be able to fit just any vehicle. The most common bolt pattern in the aftermarket wheel industry is 4, 5, 6, and 8 lug patterns, and each has many variations.
Mismatched wheels will fit each tire differently causing uneven wear and tear. In addition, different sized wheels can lead to different sized tires which can be detrimental to your vehicle. The best case scenario is to buy the same original equipment wheels that came on your vehicle.
Can I put 22 inch rims on my car?
Some large sedans or luxury sports cars come with the option of 20-inch rims. Putting 22-inch rims on with no modifications will cause the car's body to hit the tires when driving over bumps and can cause the front tires to rub on the fenders when making a turn.
An 18-inch tire, for example, will probably weigh at least a couple of pounds more than a 16- or 17-inch tire. In general, steel wheels weigh more than aluminum alloy wheels. Replacing a standard 17-inch alloy wheel with an 18- or 19-inch alloy rim will add weight (With exceptions).
Generally speaking, yes. But you need to take some measurements into consideration. First, the overall diameter of the rim+tire of your 17" set should be the same as the 16" set you are replacing, or at least within a tolerable % variation, usually accepted to be 2% or under.
Yes you can put 20 inch rims on your vehicle but with limitations. This will depend on how wide the rims and tires will be and also if the tires will clear the struts and suspension parts when driving and turning.
