Offset is a good question though. The 900-16's had a 49mm offset. Compare this to the 9-3 offset in your manual (will be listed as "ET49" or similar). It's important that the offset be correct so that the tires don't rub. Call www.tirerack.com. You could get steel wheels for about $39/ea last I checked. They will look up the offset for you. You want to make sure that you use the correct size (same diameter) tires also. I think that's a 195-60-15 for you. You can have them mount and balance the wheels for you and it will all be plug and play. This will be a heck of a lot easier than tromping around the world looking for some used wheels that are damaged or don't fit. BTW - there are plenty of 16" winter or high-performance all season tires available in the 16" size. See tirerack. bob
