Hi Guys,
Saw some wheels advertised and just wondering if anyone can confirm if OZ Racing Wheels 8Jx16HZ offset 25, will fit on a Sapphire?
I am aware the offset is 35 on a sapphire and just wondering if they will fit and clear the struts? and what direction the extra 10 will make? whether it will push the wheels further away from the car or towards it? they aren't particularly cheap, but don't come up for sale very often back home.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers K!

The tire for the escos is to big, on Sierra. You will Need lower profile yes, and Max 205-215 in front. 205/45 16 is the best bet. 215 might Need some work on front arch
