I tried to buy Steel Rims and Skinny Snow Tires through the Tire Rack. They wouldn't recommend that package for clearance reasons. I had to go with Stock Rims.

Stock 17's go for pretty cheap on the forums. You might want to check out our classifieds section and see if anyone has some for sale.

Other than that, I'm not sure if the 16's will fit or not. :dunno:

Yeah, i would preferably like a set of the OEM 17's (have 18's witih stock tires for dry conditions), but I came upon a good deal of 16's with Blizzak's and liked the idea of using a smaller width to increase surface tension on snow (6.5" with 205mm tires). I imagine Tirerack will not recommend, but it doesn't mean it cant be done. I did some measurements of the opening and it appears the 16" diameter won't be a problem, but the spacing of how far the caliper sticks out may cause an issue. The steelies i'm looking at claim to have a 35mm offset. Thanks again for the help, im hoping i can get some confirmation that this will work.
