Need help understanding wheel size

Hey guys, I recently bought a 2016 mazda 3 sport and have been looking to buy rims for it. The stock rims are pretty weak. I found some dope looking rims on Craigslist but not sure if it will fit my car or not . The rims on Craigslist are 5X114.3 18x8+40 off set. I have no idea what this means. All I know is my Mazda 3 meets the 5x114.3 standard but I do not know if they will match up in the other respective specifications. If anyone can help me out that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

There's a whole will it fit topic here. That's probably why you won't get any responses. Or it might be the other mazda 3 forum

I do this from my phone. Do the BSD. slight vibration increase. Zoom-zoom 😎

There are also aftermarket wheel sites that allow you to key in your vehicle information and the wheels you want and tells you what will fit and what all those confusing to you terms are. Like hub bore diameter, bolt pattern, positive and negative offset, hubcentric, lugcentric etc. do yourself a favor and brush up some knowledge on this stuff, doesn't hurt to learn
