    Depending on your tyres ET35 offset may foul the arches. Mine was fine with ET35 until I swapped my rubber for Yokohama AD08R's now they catch. Might use it as an excuse to swap the wheels as have had these for a few years now

    ET38 and 8J is about the perfect fitment for a B5.

    Dont get the polished silver ones though, give it 6 months and they'll be ruined. The Bronze ones are cool, but they seem to be mk4 golf fitment.

    The bronze ones are nice I like the polished ones I keep my alloys very clean so may be ok

    I've got 225/40R18 on 7.5x18 ET30 and they just catch the rear arch lip occasionally and you should have about 8-9mm more clearance with those depending which tyres you use.
