Hello Mark

the offset is within the standard range for this car (33-45 mm) and the width is the same so it shouldn't hit anything in the wheearch or suspension

the thing to check is the centre bore of the new wheel as its needs to match the 76.2mm bore of the standard wheel in order to center the wheel correctly
