Default bullitt wheels on a fox body

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?

The stock bullitts will fit just fine. As long as you don't drop it to far down in the front you shouldn't have any rubbing issues.

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 think gray wheels would look good imo..

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.
