    not 100% sure mate, but I do know that the offset could do with being higher closer to 49 the better i think, there is a wheel guide available in the technical section, have a look there

    i used to have thoughts rims on my car they were 7.5 / 17 205 40s not sure what the offset was though,although it must have been the same offset as the one in the advert,i had no problems with them rubbing wise dropped 40mm,although i buckled one of the wheels,any excuse to upgrade to 18s which i recommend u do.Heres a pic of them i took with my camera phone http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y24...y/Image233.jpg and later with the 18s http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y24...pionner022.jpg

    Divma has these in 18" and lowered probably 60mm on his coupe with no issues.

    Forgot to ask is your car a four or five stud? my old Oxigin 1 rims were in a four stud and iam sure the offset was 40,but iam 99% sure u will be fine,dont you have any alloy wheel shops were you stay?as i would be dubious about buying rims from mail order alot of money if something goes wrong! Oh by the way i buckled my wheel by hitting a pot hole,the offset in the 18s is a 42,no problems!!!
