    Et 35 will fill the arch more, but it depends massively On how wide they are and what tyre you intend to run! Et 45 is typically the better ofset with say a 8.5 inch wheel.

    My 8.5" wheels sit flush and are et45 up front and et37 at the rear but i run a 215 tyre with stretch to clear the arches.
