Wheel offset?

I want to know what is the offset for our stock 15" and 16" wheels. Also I would like to know what kind of offset would be alright for our cars in a 17X7 or 17X7.5 wheel. That is the minimal to the max. offset for each of those 17" wheels. I knew this, put it on the back burner, and I searched here earlier, but the search wasn't any help.

I know the bolt pattern, I'm just wondering on the offset especially for the 17" wheels I specified. The min. and max. offset.

stock weels are 16x6,5 ET39 so if you go to a width of 7 you choose a ET of (+-)40 and with a width of 7,5 to 8 you choose a ET of 35-40. Because you can get in problems with the space on the inside of the wheel.

I'm getting 16 in. wheels and was wondering if I could go with an off set between 35 and 38. Would there be any problems since the factory one is 39?

It depends.

The wheel is gonna come more to the outside of the car (1 to 4 mm). So if the wheel width is much bigger than the stock wheel than the wheel can come outside the wheel well.

Smaller offset ---> wheel more to the outside
Larger offset ---> wheel more to the inside

So what is the width of the wheel you want to buy?

If it is smaller than 8 inches there shouldn't be a problem.
