Default Will my old wheels fit?

So a Buick totaled my SRT-4 and as soon as I get my insurance check I will be buying a Mazdaspeed3. Even though the car was totaled, my rims from it are still good. I know the bolt pattern for the SRT-4 is 5x100 which is different from the MS3, but the wheels have a second set of holes. The wheels are 18x8 Tork Champions with 225/40/18 tires. The car is at the body shop, so I can't measure right now, but does anybody have any idea if these will fit? I know how to measure the bolt pattern, but how do I measure the offset? What are the preferred and acceptable offsets for the MS3?

Here are a couple pictures for reference:

i dont think they will, but you can always see if they bolt up. thing to be concerned with if they do bolt up is the hub size.

It should show the offset on the back of the wheels, at most I've seen do. with 8" wide you'll want/need around +48 or higher...

totally random question but I was thinking about this today and I have no idea how it works. If you get in an accident, how does insurance deal with aftermarket parts, are you compensated for them in any way? Really random I know, haha. Thanks

Well i have had no problems from my insurance replacing aftermarket parts. Just make sure you hold onto your receipts for the parts incase they need it.

Basically they just compensated me for the retail value of the parts. Personal preference upgrades don't count for squat, so things like my eyelids, shifter, clear corners, tail lights etc. I didn't get anything for. If they were added parts, I could put the stock part back on. They did however "compensate" me for my wheels, suspension, exhaust and mopar stage 1 turbo upgrade. I say compensate in quotations because they really didn't give me what they were worth. They just gave me an extra $1300 or so. This wasn't my insurance company either; this was the guy's who pulled out in front of me.

aftermarket parts are usually cheaper than stock parts. So some insurance companies will do it with no problems cause you are saving them money.
