  46. Someone good with wheel fitment

    Ive found some watercoolced cc10's that I'm interested in to swap my pro race 1.2s. I don't have a clue about fitment, they are 16x9j all round running on 195/40/16 and 195/40/16. The offset is et20. could i get these to fit, or is it just a complete no go thanks.
