So I'm looking for a set of 16 inch rims for the 740's winter tires. I have access to a wholesale distributor and can get decent prices so I don't have to settle on steelies. I've been told that the rims are 5 X 120 and can be 7 or 8 inch but that the offset has to be +15-25, which makes it damn difficult.

IS THIS CORRECT ?

Inquiring minds want to know.....

Yup, correct. You could correct a higher offset wheel with spacers but that would negate the wholesale price advantage.
