I don't really think I have the means to do so...but I found a great deal on a set of 18" F Type Jaguar wheels on eBay. They share the 5X108 bolt pattern. They are staggered and the fronts have a 55mm offset (its an 18X8.5) which would be fine but the rears are supposedly a 27mm offset (18X9.5). Would that setup actually work? Or would you be better off getting two sets of fronts?

Just curious because they look really sharp.

What's the center bore? You'll either need to drill them out or get hubcentric rings.

The fronts should fit just fine, you may notice a little rubbing at full steering lock. Is your car lowered at all? Also depends on what size tire you put on these.

The rears will be a tight squeeze and you'll most likely need to roll the fenders. Honestly, if you could source 4 front wheels, that would probably be ideal. No point in putting 9.5" wide wheels on the back of a FWD car.
