Saw these rims on a 159 parked on the street. Thought they would look cool on my 156, but don't know anything about them except that they are 17'

PCD on a 159 is 5 x 110, which differs from the 156, which is 5x98, so they won’t fit unfortunately. The centre bore is also different. 156 is 58.1 and 159 is 65.1.

159 has a 5x110 PCD, 156 is a 5x98.

You'll need some hub-adapters that will probably end up spacing the wheels out by 15-20mm.

and you need to consider the cost of those PCD adapters.
A good strong set won't be cheap and will quickly make a bargain set of wheels cost far more than you thought.

and don't go for the cheap option because they are all that is holding the wheels on to the car and people have had cheap ones fail.... which doesn't end well...!

Much cheaper to get the vaguely similar 17" rims which came on quite a few 156s. I broke a SW which had them but they were tatty and multispoke alloys are a pain to clean.

Multi spoke are a pain.

As basic as they look, I like how easy my Selespeed rims are to wipe down! Big chunky 5 spoke wheels with no weird little gaps to reach into.
