Offset can be created in two ways, or a combination of both on steel or two piece wheels. The shape of the wheel center and/or the position of the outer rim to the center. More often than not the centers remain the same shape and the position of the outer rim is adjusted for proper or close to stock offset. As I have posted in the past, I am using 17" OEM Buick Verano wheels on both vehicles but since neither is a 2.0 I don't know if they'll work with the larger brakes. I am going to be putting them on in the next week so if any dimensions I could check that may help in determining fit on the 2.0 vehicles let me know and I'll do my best to check them out.
One thing I noticed about some of the after market steels wheels is that the prices approach what I paid for the Buick wheels and that wasn't considering the additional cost of hub caps if you chose to use them. I also read one review where the buyer had to drill the valve hole larger to accommodate the TPMS sensor. If the concern for using aluminum wheels in the Winter when salt can corrode them, I've had good luck with spraying Fluid Film on the wheels. BTW, the bow tie center caps fit the Buick wheels.
