If the offset is too high you can correct it with spacers.
The offset you need is 35 and the offset of the wheel is 48, so you'll need a correction of 13mm. But be careful with spacers. Make sure you use good quality. But I don't know if the bolds are still long enough when you use spacers.

Don't attempt to use spacers...You need to find a wheel between a 35 and I believe 42 offset. In that area will fit our 5X100 bolt patterns

stock offset is 39 so either way is fine.

closer to 35 would be better if your going to get really wide tires, like a 225 series

use the search function, nimrod ... lollol

just kidding ... 215 is the width of the tire in Millimeters amd 40
is the aspect ratio which is the percentage of the width the side wall is.
so it would be 215 * .4 = 86 millimeters

So the height of the sidewall is 86 mm and the width of the tire is 215, this math is the same for all tires.

Go here for a cool tire calculator.

eek those are some wide ass rims ... uh confused I think the offset you would need for those would be ... hmmmmmm

well 25.4 mm = 1 inch so to keep from rubbing
front +15
rear +15

I'm not 100% sure confused

I originally planned to get the Racing Hearts 19X8.5 offset 0 and 19X10 offset -5 but I don't want super low profiles. The wheels need to fit the APR GT300 kit perfect. I'm kind of cloudy with the offset, correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the offset determine how far back rim goes confused
