Depends on the wheel offset and if they are the correct bolt pattern, pcd and centre bore.

And width. Rota RBs come in 7" and 8". A wheel too wide could foul the arches.

No, according to Revolution Alloys. I have the same car, and asked the same question a few weeks back.
Have a look at Rota Gt3s though. I settled for them, well pleased. Personally, now I see them on, I do not think they are a second best, but better & more suited.
RBs look brilliant on Mk1s though.
