rofl
7.5 is width, not offset.
Offset is something like 38mm, 40mm, 45mm, etc...
They will NOT fit.
Different bolt patten for one reason.
We have 5x100 (though 90-91 ST has 4x100 bolt pattern)

if that is the case it should be ok, i forget the rule for offsets, if larger it sticks out more and smaller it gets closer... i forget, hopefully gary can help ya

Smaller offset wheel will stick out more and give you larger gap between strut and inner sidewall of tire. But you can not look at offset alone, you have to make sure the wheel is not too wide.
Rule of thumb, you need smaller offset on wider wheel.
What size of tire you are planning to run?
