    Nope, if you read it carefully, and i know its difficult to get your head around it, the lowest number offset you can go without insanely stretching tyres is ET45.


    You could try stretching 215's or 205's on there to get the tread inside the arch, but personally i think stretch looks awful and isnt safe for the way i drive cars

    Thanks...would it matter if the car wasn't lowered? I hope this isn't a stupid question

    well, considering the OP had his ET38's rubbing when it wasnt lowered then yea i guess it'd still rub if it wasnt lowered.

    Best option would be to order the correct offset to save a whole load of hassle on your behalf
