I'd say its about an hour and 15 minutes to get there from where you are.

Pick them up and see what happens?

=============================================
YES........same bolt pattern 5 on 4.5

NO.........they WILL NOT mount on the front hubs (center is too small)
without havin it machined.

I've got Jeep Wrangler Canyon wheels on my 94:

I didn't know what I just told you mountin wise until I had bought the wheels............LUCKILY I have a contact at a machine shop & he bored the hole out for me for $40, as the back side is able to clear, but the hole narrows to the outside........that's how they have those lil' plastic center caps.

Before: I used a dremel to hog out the holes before I took em to the machine shop

I purchased aftermarket center caps from a local wheel/tire shop that fit from behind & had the hole machined out to fit it, as it was the same size as the backside of the original hole so I didn't take any integrity away from the wheel.
