Cant help with 2002 car But check the offset. The bigger the offset the closer in towards the calipers the spokes will be . I know that sounds odd but its how it works Take a look here for details. You can get away with a bit from the recommended offset But make sure they dont foul anything

Offset is the relation between the hub mounting surface and the rim centerline.
Caliper clearance is the location and shape of the wheel spokes between hub and rim.
