    Front inner clearance - 15mm LESS
    Outer position - EXTEND an extra 11mm

    Rear inner clearance - 23mm LESS
    Outer position - EXTEND an extra 27mm

    According to Wheel Offset Calculator

    Looks like a no go to me. You MAY get away with 4 x fronts with the correct adapters.

    Good luck.
