    Depends on wheel size and tire size... lots of people stick to +42 with a 7 inch wheel and a 205 tire, assuming that the tire diameter is sized correctly for your transmission.

    proper offset is determined by a couple things.

    - wheel width
    - brake caliper/etc clearence needed
    - fender design
    - tire height (to clear above)

    you might know a thing or two but it's not about wheels. pls educate yourself before giving out mis-information

    the bolt pattern say 4x100mm, 5x100mm is how far apart the studs are.
    offset is the distance from the centerline of the rim to the hub
