    You may need a hub ring since ours are 70.3 and that bolt pattern may "work" but I wouldn't say it is safe since our bolt pattern is 5x120.7 and not 5x120. I personally wouldn't run them.

    The only reason i say the bolt pattern would work is there are a few guys on here that run with after market bmw rims but the whole hub ring thing has me worried thats a big difference. I honestly not sure what that is?

    The hub ring size on a wheel is the part on the inside of the wheel that the hub goes in. If it is too small the wheel won't fit and if it is way too big it may not rest correctly. You would need an adapter in this case. Slightly bigger would be fine without one but in this case I would say an adapter is definitely needed.

    Those wheel offsets(+43) are perfect for a F-body, yeah technically you shouldn't use a wheel with a different bolt pattern spacing, but in this case the difference is so small the the studs will only be off by .35mm(.0128") at each lugnut hole. So in all but the most extreme conditions you should be perfectly fine.
    Otherwise just get 4 hubcentric rings so the wheels center up an drive on.
    BTW there's a lot of different wheel styles available with the 5-120 bolt pattern.
