This forum is dead, so a reply may take a while.

I'm skeptical they will fit perfect without any modification.

15" standard offset would not even fit on my 95 Lincoln town car front as the calipers were too big, but was able to grind them, they got even bigger in 98 onward and I don't think grinding will work. I really thought the 15" would drop right on my car no problems, until I tried.

If you are talking about reverse lace, I'm not sure what clearance issues you will have compared to the standards I have, you might have a little more room with those.

Good luck on it, hopefully someone with experience with that year can say for sure.
