whats the minimum offset for a b5 passat? (2000). i got enkei mm2's 225/40/18 on right now with 34 offset and they are kinda deep in the fender right now in the rear. i measured with a string and weight and with a 15mm spacer i can make it flush with my fender. so combined with the spacer my offset would be 19mm, right? im new to this stuff and tried searching but couldnt really find exactly what i was looking for. would i be okay with this setup?

p.s. - i will only be putting spacers in the rear.

thanks

it really depends on how low you are. In any case, while it would look nice, 15mm is pushing it clearance wise. I had 9.5's in the back with a 35mm offset which works out to be about an 8.5" et35mm wheel with a 13mm spacer and the lip of the wheel would sometimes kiss the rear fender. However, I was quite low.
