Can anybody tell me what it takes (other than a five lug conversion) is required to fit a set of OE wheels 17x9 Bullitt wheels on a 1991 LX Hatch. No suspension mods yet, but would like to drop it a bit in the very near future? what backspace and offset do I need to get to pull this off?

I was talking about five lug bullitts. I have been told that you need to use 94 stang spindles and brakes for the wheels to fit the the rotors , but didn't know if this was true, or if I could just buy a five lug conversion. I may just get the charcoal 10th anniversary cobra wheels instead.
What does everbody think about gray wheels on a dark blue hatch?
i'm going to go to black fr500's with a polished lip when i can afford the cobra r brake upgrade... but thats long from now.
The only thing you need is a 5 lug conversion... other than that it's fine... i have 17x9 cobra r's on mine with 2 inch lowering springs... it rubs slightly when you crank completely over but i never do that anyway so its all good.
If you look at my sig. I have the bullitts on my car. Ranger axles, and lincoln rotors. Then you need to get some wheel spacers, I forget how much I needed to space it out, was something like 1/2" or 9/16" in the front, as they hit the hub on the rotor. Had to put longer studs in the rotors to compensate for this, as well as put some rack-limiters in the rack to stop it from rubbing when turning.
