I don`t remeber, I was fitting them about a year ago, and it was too high offset, but I can always give them a distance.
I had them on my ex Vectra, and I`m thinking of buying them back :

I worked it out on mine.

A speedline is 6.5x16 ET49 and a Borbet A is 9x16 ET15. The lip on the Borbet will sit 64mm further out than the Speedline lip. Thats quite a bit. You can also get some 9x16's in ET25. That would make them still out 54mm more than the Speedline. Thats still a lot. 195/40's deffo needed.

Its doable but would really need the 7.5J fronts.

7.5x16 & 9x16




Not sure on the offsets as they make both ET20 & ET35 in the 7.5's and both ET15 & ET25 in the 9's. I'd say the backs are ET25. I did ask the lad but he didnt know
