Using FWD wheels on RWD cars

I've been reading up on some of the Jag sites and they state you can use a FWD wheel on the Jag because of the offset you need. Is there any problem doing this? I was looking at the Crager site and notice they have a Classic 5 spoke that would look great.

Regards
Mark

To the best of my knowledge, the only difference is offset. This is usually because FWD brake setups are usually a little different (bigger) than most RWD setups because they have to make room for the axles. I would recommend trying to bolt the wheel you like on and making sure clearance is good. Every dealer or manufacturer I've dealt with states you can return an unused wheel as long as a tire hasn't been mounted. It's worth paying the shipping cost to try it if you really like the wheel, in my opinion.

Just see if you can order just one and see if they will work for you. I know the rim has to be opened up a bit for the rear but you can see if it is close.
