Stock TurboII wheels are +40 offset 16x7. It'll sit just a little bit deeper than a stock wheel. I personally wouldn't like that, go for something from +30 to +35 to have the wheels much more flush with the body.

Here hope these help if not just let me know and I'll take more pics. Oh I've also dropped the car a 1in or so since this photo. The offset does limit me on that.
