    They won't fit without adapters, you may be able to get adapters on eBay and make them fit with spigot rings, otherwise you'll have to get them custom made. Quite pricey too!

    I ran ET50 with 19mm spacers and my rear wheels are flush/slightly poke out the back arch.

    Standard is ET68 I think

    Ive just ordered ET37 so I can ditch the spacers.

    The standard offset is et68.

    The wheels asked about first off are et 35 to 45, as these would stick out the arch in that offset adding about 20mm of adapter to them would stick out 20mm more.

    Unless you were asking about wheels for the 200T?

    So if I was going for pro races what would I need, I'm running 20mm spacers at the moment, I'm assuming if I went 5x108 in 17's with a 38 offset that would be fine?

    And would I get away with 7" rather than 7.5? Hoping you say yes!

    Why get 7" when 7.5" is available for the clio, that was et45 on a 7.5" width wheel, 7" will be different.

    But then you could sell your spacers to make up some of the difference

    It was a couple of years ago, but they may still do them cheaper than list price

    No because the offset (et38 ) is already lower than standard.

    Depends on width too, if you stuck with 7.5x17 (same as standard) you'd only be safe with an et48, anything lower, the et number being lower than 48 and you'll start poking the wheels outside the arch.

    So if I want to run without spacers, what et would I need so they sit flush like they currently do with 20mm spacers?
