Early in the decision process, look at the potential for brake-caliper interference if your car has disc brakes. Templates are available from brake manufacturers to help determine if your brakes will work with the wheels you want. They may also have a list of workable combinations, although it's difficult to keep track of every possible combination. Even with the templates and a manufacturer's list of applications, the best way to be certain a wheel will clear the brake calipers is to test the fit before you buy the wheels or mount any tires. If necessary, purchase one wheel for the test. Most wheel shops will refund your money if the wheel is returned undamaged and has never had a tire mounted. We test fitted this wheel at all four corners before any tires were mounted.
