    Had a bit of a search and couldn't find an answer

    I have found some wheels I like, but I'm not sure on the offset/tyre combo

    currently have standard s-line 5 spokes, so as far as I know they are 18 x 7.5 et54 with 225 40 18 tyres
    the new wheels are 18 x 8.5 et 45 also with 225 40 18 tyres

    Car is standard 3.2 s-line ride height and that's not likely to change anytime soon

    My wheel calculator says an extra 21mm of poke

    Will they fit ok or poke out to much? any help greatly appreciated
