Front brake caliper to spoke clearance is the main issue with aftermarket wheels.

ET45 will move the wheel outwards by 5mm.

et48s are the safe, 45s may rub depending if the car is lowered or not.

front arches may rub when youre going over bumps when turning the wheel with the 45s (and this fenders are quite pricey, so i wouldnt risk it imo)

Just borrowed some wheels off a guy I know that are 8.5 x 19 et45 with 235 tyres & all fits well on oem suspension, will have to check again once the coilovers are fitted before I make a wheel purchase.
