I say yes providing the wheels have a 4.5" backspacing.5-120-65mm = 5-4.74 inch and thats the right bolt pattern.

I think the 0 offset means the mounting face of the rim is in the center of the wheel width. So if they're 17x8 then it would have about 4" of backspacing. You should double check to make sure what I'm saying is correct, but that's how I understood it.
