In theory any wheels with a 4x108 PCD should do the trick.

Just remember if you go up in wheel size you have to lower the tyre profile.

The overall diameter has to stay pretty much the same otherwise it throws your speedo off.

Must be 4x108 PCD and the right offset which i think is ET35-38.

The overall diameter does not have to stay the same as your speedo is actually more accurate on 17"s as satndard.
The speedo is made to read higher than you are actually travelling. Due to safety reasons.
