I know there is much debate about wheel offset, for which I know nothing about.....They are Enkei RZ-5. I really like these wheels but they are +42offset. The website says they fit but how will they really look???

42 offset means the wheel will be closer to the fender. 3 mm isnt much of a difference but once you get to 40 and lower, you start to worry about rubbing(especially if you're lowered). 42 should be fine and if the website or wheel shop says they'll fit, then i'd believe them

edit: better way to describe would to say that you're going to be more flush

if I have a set of rims that are offset 50mm. Question is what is the ideal parameters in which to have the rims at, as I also do not know anything about this but interested to find out, plus the eibach springs will lower 1.2" front and back. I have a Kia forte sedan so will this work? I know this is more than one question but your feedback is appreciated!
