Default New rims!... What works?

Hello all!
I'm lookin into getting my baby some new wheels😎 but there's one thing that's holding me back... What rims work? I found some 17s off a VW GTI but idk if they'll work... But what are the wheel specs and what wheels work on mine?
Thanks
Eli

The GT 17 inch wheel is 5x100 7 inches wide and the offset is 39 mm. The stock tire is a 205/50 R17.

Of course, you must have the 5x100 bolt pattern. The Ford pattern that is very close will not work. Beyond that, it's a matter of wheel offset and clearance. Here's a very good online tire and wheel visual calculator that you can play with. Enjoy.
