They will stick out of the guards on the BA. It'll look ridiculous.

Offset is wrong by about 32mm.

No offence, but that's a dumb question. Pre AU offset are 'offset' because AU-BF have different axles, hence the need to be indeed 'offset'

its actually +6mm according to my stockies. But the offset can vary as my old aftermarket mags were +11mm offset and fitted fine.

Also the offset usually changes, the wider the rim. The backspacing is the most important aspect anyway, when i got my rear stockies widened i kept the same backspacing to ensure the exact same fit.... god knows what offset it is now....
