    Mk3 - ET35??

    Looking at some new wheels for my mk3 astra but didnt know if the offset would be correct for my car. I know the closer the offset is to 45 or 49 the better but would I experience any problems fitting Et35 with standard suspension.
    They will fill the arches better as they will stick out more but will they go past the arches and look silly?

    Far too far out on an MK3, stick to a 45 if you can.

    I've got ET40 17s on my Mk 3 and even that tramlines far worse than my original 15s. I wish life was simple....

    Please dont make the same mistake I did. On the face lift mk3 make sure u go no less than 45's as that will even be a push I believe the earlier one is slightly different as the rear lip is slightly less pronounced but still DO NOT risk it so much money just to waste like I did. btw I then bought sum kahn copies which I believe were 45's and they were luvvvely nice fit n made the car handle so much beta hope to be of help.
