16x8 et 42 fronts (will be running 195/40/16)
16x9 et 41 rears (will be running 205/40/16)

what is the IDEAL offsets front & rear. I've searched, however have gotten some contradicting statements from a lot of posts. just wondering what kinda spacers im gonna need to buy for these

spacing them 20mm front and rear will get you really close to where you want to be. And that spacer/adapter thickness is probably available in the classifieds
