this is a 2008- fairly new (in my world anyway)- just buy a set of wheels that match- whatever they are- the car is worth it- and if you buy alloys, always buy FIVE-

Should work fine. The difference in wheel size is minor and depending on the actual tire size there may be no actual difference at all.. Of course the actual tire size on the rims may make it worse too. While I don't mix them, my 18" rims on my "06 with low profile tires are exactly the same diameter as the 16" rims with big beefy snow tires that I run in the winter.
