Default Bolt pattern

Is the bolt pattern on the sedans 5x114? If so, can we put wheels (universal) that have a 5x114.3 pattern on without problems? I'm looking at a set that have a 38 offset but I don't believe that will be a problem.

5x114 is the the same thing as 5x114.3

so yes they will fit

The 5 stands for 5 bolts and the unit for 114.3 is milimeters (mm for short). Sometimes you will also see it as 5x4.5, where 4.5 inches equals 114.3 mm. Be careful, as the mult-fit rims for winters do not generally fit hub centric, i.e. exactly on the hub without a gap. Don't know if it makes much of difference, but I've heard that vibrations can sometimes be an issue. Personally, I would try to get hub centric wheels as this will eliminate any potential problems with balancing.
