They will bolt straight on.
Only problem is with the offset difference they will hang out of your guards a good inch or so and look somewhat bogan.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

And if the car is lowered and you go over a hump, most likely the tyres will hit your wheel arch...

See if you can find replicas in AU offset.
