    Well I got a set of 17x9 rims for 100.00 from my friend. There from his 97' WS6. They seemed to fit with no problem but the hub only went about a 1/2'' into the rims. I checked and the rim is all they way against thehub but I just thought it may not be in enough. I'm sure some one else has seen this. Hopefully its ok. any info is greatly appreciated
