Default Right bolt pattern, but what about offset?

I have some 16x7.5" rims off my other car that are dual bolt pattern, the second bolt pattern will fit my RS Wagon. Now, my question is about offset. They're +42mm offset. Most aftermarket rims are in the +50 to +52mm range, so these rims I had will sit 10mm (3/8" or so) further out than typical. Assuming I put stock size 205/55-16" rubber on them, will I have problems with rubbing? Does it leave me room to up it to a 215/50 tire?

Also what other effects can I expect with this wheel? Wear on components, better/worse handling, etc.

Thanks!

Anybody? I'd rather know one way or the other before I spend the money to get the tires remounted on the other rims, only to find I have to put them back on the stockers because these didn't work out.

Youre not getting a response because its been covered so many times. You are likely to get rubbing with that combo on your wagon if it has been even moderately lowered. You could roll your fenders but that offset also is far from ideal for your car. Over time you can damage your bearings with that low an offset.

CN: I wouldnt do it.
