N I want it to b flush so would I need to add spacers? Thanks

First step would be to search the forums. There are hundreds of threads on wheel fitments.

Second would be to post in the right forum. This will probably get moved to the "Wheel and Tire" forum.

Third, a negative wheel offset is very wrong for these cars. We run about 40mm offset. I think the stock sport wheels are almost 50mm offset.

Fourth, if you are doing a 7.5" wide wheel, you'll probably run 225mm wide tires. You'll need a profile ratio of 45 to maintain the proper wheel diameter.
