P38 Offset Wheels Possible?

Hey,
Had a search through the threads but want to know if anyone has fit the following setup on a Clio Mk3 200?
Pretty much like running 25mm spacers on the standard wheel/tyre combo it seems.

17 x 7.5 P38 offset wheel.
215/45/17 tyres.
Eibach lowered coils (25-30mm).

Standard wheels are 17x7.5J ET68, so it's the same as running 30mm spacers, not 25mm.

I run 21mm and I could go another 5mm on back, but I wouldn't want to go more on front (without camber).
So you could make it work, but not many people on here run that low offsets, but many do run ET45 wheels, so the ET38 will sit 7mm further outboard.

Cheers for that. For some reason I had ET63 as the offset for my AGP (cup) Edition from what I have researched.
Sounds risky either way & don't want any dramas.

I'm running a set of 17x8 ET42 with 225/45 Nankang NS2Rs on Eibach springs (soon to be Cooksport), I've had no rubbing so far but I reckon some proper hard cornering would catch a little. I'll get some pics up once I've finished changing over to the Cooksport springs as they sit lower than the Eibach set.

ET38 would be too much in my opinion.

Wheel width also plays a part and ET38 on a 7.5j rim will actually stick out 2mm less than ET42 on a 8j rim according to the willtheyfit website
