They are 5 x 108.

So no, not directly.

But you can use wobble bolts.

Unsure of offset and centerbore.

If you can get a center bore diameter and offset we'll be able to let you know.

yes it does suck, did you ever get some new wheels? If I had an aero I would be fine with the stock 17's and actually that's what I'm basically looking for. However I might just settle with keeping the 16's and drop the car depending on how much my wheels weigh.

Also these wheels are 5 X 108 and they claim that they are guaranteed to fit on any 99-08 9-3. They don't mention wobble bolts either.

Those are 5x110.

As for the Volvo wheels, the offset is fine. Centerbore is still needed, though.

And I have heard of wobble bolts working on 5x112, but I don't know if they work down a size, 5x108 or not.

edit: as I reread the link ADouglas posted, yeah, those offsets won't work in the "safe" range either.
