    Stock wheels are

    16x7
    4.25" BS
    +22 offset


    Looks like those are FWD rims but the numbers, and not really ideal. They will sit VERY inboard on your car. You'd need 1" spacer or more to make them flush, and that's not really ideal.

    Still would be the same stock offset and BS.


    Short answer, those wheels are too deep for the stock fox 4-lug brake setup.

    Wow 45mm offset! More than likely for a front wheel drive car.

    It all comes down to your taste. I would hate like hell for someone to pick wheels out for me. I personally have been really liking the 93 cobra wheels lately
