I remember reading an ET40 but I can't seem to find that info now to confirm it. I think I may just bite the bullet and buy these. For $100 I can't go wrong. Any suggestions for a tire size?
A 40mm offset will be fine. If they are 48mm (like most Matrix wheels) then you'll want a 10mm spacer in the front and a 20mm or 25mm spacer in the rear. Do a 205/50-16 tire on there - it should be the factory Corolla size once they went to 5x100 hubs.

Currently running a 185/70/14 on 14" steelies 6" wide with a 40 offset. The wheels pictures above are a 16" x 6" with an offset of 45. If I end up running a 205/50/16 will I still clear struts, etc?

Yeah, that will clear. It just won't look quite a nice as if you had the spacers. Start with the wheels and see what you think from there.

This is 16x7, 40mm offset with 20/50-16 tires on one of my old Camrys (lowered but no spacers):

Well I picked up the wheels last night but upon further inspection realized I had been slightly misinformed. Although Toyota did indeed make this identical wheel for the corolla they also made it for the matrix.

These wheels are a 16" x 6.5" with an offset of 39. I assume this won't be an issue, will it?

I've also ran a 205/50 on a 16 x 7" +40 with no problems.

If you lower it with springs or coilovers you will rub the front wheel well plastic liners a little when going over deep dips in the city or at highway speeds.

Beautiful wheels will always make a car look a ton better. I don't plan to replace my factory alloys but your car is way sharp. And Charlie's too, I love the paint for some reason. Looks like old denim.
