Wheel offset question, Help

Hi guys I would like to buy a set of Ris but the offset thing is confusing. I know are front offset is 49 and the rear is 52. But I do not know what that has to do with the car. What offsets can I get away with without rubbing. Can I go up or down or do I have to be right on. I would appreciate your help with this I need to have some kind of understanding so that I can make an informed decision. Thank you

There are still only very few wheels available for the 1. Go to look at the info for offset on their wheels and see if you can find something similar. Remember the lower the offset number the further the wheels moves out.

Check out the wheel guide I posted, you post your OEM wheel size and tire size on the left and the desired size on the right. Then it will let you know how off it is going to be.
