    they're a bit wide: OEM is 235 width (with 8J, ET45).... aside from that not too far off: just check for rubbing on the inside edges (or get 5mm-10mm spacers).

    rolling radius will also be a little out (sidewall profil is "correct" (40), but that number is a ratio of the width, not an aboslute number, but off the top of my head it'll only be 2-3% over-geared, so not a major issue (speedo should still be fine, etc).
