Default OZ Superturismo's

I want to get a set of Superturismo's for my otherwise stock 09 2.5i in Newport Blue. What do you guys think?

My main question regards offset. I want to stick to the 16" diameter because my current tires still have about four seasons left in them. That, and I like the ride quality/don't do a lot of street racing.

The 16's come in an offset of 35mm max. Apparently my car's minimum recommended offset is 40, according to the salesman. He also said that he couldn't see why the extra 5mm would be a big deal. He gave me the option of test fitting them, but I'm worried about potential problems that aren't visible to the eye (wheel bearings).

What do you guys think?

...On a side note, what do you think of the new Sparco Terra's. Might also consider those.

offset means nothing without an associated width.

we need more information if you want an answer.

There is not an OZ Racing Superturismo in 16" for a 2009 Impreza 2.5i in a proper fitment .... the 35mm offset is not correct for the car ...

Would you happen to know of any 16" OZ's that'd work with my car? Superleggeras maybe?
