There isn't a whole lot of room in the wheel-well for much change in offset, and they could also make problems for you with Scrub Radius and Ackerman Angle. So in effect I don't think that they would fit very well, and even if they did, they would probably mess with steering geometry. Not to mention that you're going to have to invest in a lot of other suspension work to be competitive in the class those wheels are going to put you in, especially if you make other mods to make them fit.

Not very good on the cost/benefit ratio...
