The wheels do not have to ,,on the chart this shows that some do and some do not


The wheel width dictates if the ET will change.

You could put up the other figures like width and diameter of the one that you want, and I could tell you more.

But they are all in the chart

8.5 J X 19" 5X112 ET35 ( fronts )

9.5 J X 19" 5X112 ET35 ( rears )

thanks, I still can't get my head round the ET figures :confused: If i've got this correct the 8.5j can only be ET28-30, but the rear 9.5j would be fine with a ET35??

Yes you have it correct,,but it should not be a real problem.

the higher the figure the more they will sit inwards, and in this case that is only 5mm, but will the 5mm mean that the wheels will clear the calipers
