Thanks
Stick with an ET48 & get at 8.5” rim Image

The wheels I’m after come in 19x8.5 et45 or et38 that’s my choice and at the minute it’s looking like I won’t get them before February/ March but as I have to wait that long I really want to get the look of the car exactly right hence asking as I can’t get my head around the offset

ET45 at the front and ET38 at the back and you will be fine!

Depends on the style. Do your wheels at the rear have a slight concave?

If they don’t then 45 all around should be fine. Download this app

Then start with the OEM measurements

I got it on my iPhone but looks like it’s gone now! How weird?

There must be others, or if not there are web pages I’m sure. Once you get your head around it you can work it out on a piece of paper.

Hang on & I’ll do it for you

45 offset on a 8.5 sticks out nearly 10mm which may be tight on the arches depending on the wheel style. Should clear the callipers though

On a 38 they’ll be way to wide

Better picturesImage

I also have ordered wider fenders for the front - they should arrive this or next week hopefully. Will be 2,5cm more on each sideImage

Unfortunately I haven‘t found anything for the rear....
