205/60/15 mattering on offset, suspension, etc.

Maybe 225/55/15 assuming the above are near ideal.

rally tires
That wheel is highly desireable by the off-road crowd.

Well, you'd need to measure it or mount it and take a picture at least. Offsets can vary greatly.

Have you tried fitting these rims btw? Just because they're 5x100 doesn't mean the hubs are right. Or the offset for that matter.

Sounds like way too little offset. Hard to tell without any information but it's quite possible that they simply will not work.
