Those offsets would push your wheels out much more than stock, especially in the rear. You should be able to use them on your car if you put undersized tires on them and you are on the stock suspension. They'd probably rub at times in the rear. To get them to fit better you'd need to add some camber and maybe roll the rear fenders.

The back of the wheel where the wheel meets the hub can usually be ground down by a few mm to increase the offset and make it fit better. Machine shops can do this.

The problem with trying to increase offset of a wheel once its already out of the manufacturing process is getting the actual wheel square to the machine. If you are at all, even a few thousandths of an inch, out of square to the machine, you will get some wheel wobble and probably a difficult time balancing the wheel, as well as vibration when rolling.

I would stay away from trying to get wheels with to low an offset to fit by machining the face that mates with the hub. Just find wheels that are designed to fit.

Also, buying wheels off ebay in the incorrect offset for <$900 a set NEVER ends well.

Not unless you want to run a 225wide tire in the rear.

They are one in the same in my opinion.

There are plenty of ways to get a good idea of how that wheel will fit compared to proper offset wheels.
