993 Cup Wheels...Will they Fit?

Looking at what the owner is calling 993 Cup Wheels. This is what he's giving for specs...

the back wheels are 9 inches wide, 17 inches diameter and have a 7 inch backspacing.
the front wheels are 7 inches wide, 17 inches diameter and have a 6 inch backspacing.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Chrome cups on a 993? Never seen that before.

I like chrome on a chopped Mercury. Not a sports car though.

Normally ET/offsets dictates the accuracy of the fitment. I'm personally not familiar with backspacing figures. You could shoot a PM to member Johnny Danger and I'm convinced he will be able to tell

nice wheels, good luck with the fitting
