Re: Tire and wheels
The wheel has a 5x98 PCD bolt layout. If the replacement wheels match that bolt layout, you can use normal bolts. 4x100PCD is a common aftermarket bolt hole size so you may only find your preferred wheels in this size. Then you would need to fit "wobble bolts".
Make sure that you understand what aspect ratio you need for the width of tyre you decide on. A bigger aspect ratio gives you a taller tyre (e.g. a 225/50 has a taller sidewall than a 225/35).
Apart from looking like lorry tyres, high aspect ratios might interfere with the wheel arch.
You should match your overall wheel and tyre size to the standard one (or only slightly bigger) to avoid clearance problems.
Also read about wheel offset so you know what that ET38 (or whatever) stamped on the back of the wheel means.
