The wheels will fit, but the thing to look at / know is the offset of the wheels. Too much offset one way or the other and the wheels will either rub on the fender or clip the brake caliper.

You have it backwards. Offset is the measurement from the dead centerline of the wheel to the mounting face of the wheel. The bigger the positive offset the farther away from the centerline it is, ergo the closer the whole wheel is to the chassis.

its usually noticeable visually too, when viewing a wheel from an angle a high offset wheel’s spokes will appear basically flat from the rim to the hub. Lower offsets will often have a concave or dished appearance where the center and spokes appears sunken in relation to the rim.
