I am pretty sure you will need spacers. The changes in suspension (wider) for 03'+ cars means their rims have a deeper back spacing than the earlier models to get the same track width.

I am not sure how much but, you could measure the back spacing of both rims and you will need the difference.

Note: Some people smarter than me argue that using spacers are dangerous because the rim is no longer centered on the hub and only centered by the lug nut & stud combination. Other people reply that spacers have been used for years with no ill effects.
