I am shopping for some new wheels for my EL wagon.
I have seen rims advertised saying they suite fords and they list rim offsets, but some of them are different.

What offset should I be looking for to suite my EL wagon ?

This is one set of numbers I have seen.
Will they be OK for my car ?

17"x7.5" +35 offset 100 / 114.3 x 8

114.3 will fit because thats the right stud pattern is right but the offset is wrong.

+35 is au up with out hub adapters they will rub out on the inside of the wheel arch.

+7(i think) is the offset u need.

I prefer the look of these wheels:

But I'm really after EL GT rims.
