Hello and welcome to Just Answer

yes the early W203 wheels will fit the later car but its not straightforward

the wheel stud pattern is the same and so is the centre bore

however the differences that needs considering is the range of wheel offset as the W203 is 20-37mm offset

and the later car is 36 to 48.5mm so this will effect the steering geometry

and the later car also has larger studs M14 instead of the M12 of the earlier car so attention will be needed on the wheel nuts to check that the nut seats have the correct size of chamfered face to clamp the wheel properly
