Think of it as a mk2 as there vertually the same underneath.
To even begin to know what youll need to do youl have to take into acount the offset.
You can bolt a wheel on and look where its sittong. Too far out and you know youll have to roll arches. Camber the wheels in and stretch the tyre.
If its sittong too close to the struts your going to need to space it out. Id go as litle a spacer as you meed as to not cause problems the other side
