I know that Borbet makes a 16X9 in 4X100 ET 15. I'll check w/Borbet on the 5X100. I've not personally done this but sold the set up on the car below. Wheel price approx $140.00 no refunds or returns. 6-8 weeks to arrive.
The tire size is 215/40-16.

I have the 16" x 9" Borbet T's with Kuhmo Ecstas in a 30ET running shocks/struts. Its a real tight fit but I clear the suspension barely. I just ordered FK Koenigsriders (adjustables) and am certain I'll have to get H&R TRAK II spacers. I am thinking 15mm fronts, 25mm rears.
The tire size Eric mentioned fits perfectly. You'll find them to be quite light for such a large rim but the rubber weighs a ton.
Good luck with them if ya can get them!
