 The 87 4kcsq is a 4  x 108 mm hole pattern.  And the Borbet's will fit
if they are the same pattern.    One thing though, most people have had
problems fitting 205/50-15 tires without rubbing in the back.  I had the
same problem so I went with 195/50-15 tires, but that is a slightly
smaller circumference than stock ( about 3% I believe.)  This is all
based on a 35mm wheel offset (which I think the Borbet's are.)  If you
have a bigger offset, in the range of 38 to 40 mm, you should not have
the rubbing problem.
