O1 S Wheel off-set.

I'm looking at replacing the wheels on my 01 S and I need some advice on wheel off-set. Does anyone have any recommendations that work / look good on the car? I think the stock rims are 52mm front and the rear 56mm. I' going to stay with 18" wheels.
Thanks guys!

The factory 986 18' dimensions are:

F 7.5X18 50et
R 9X18 52et

It will be hard for you to find aftermarket wheels in those exact dimensions unless you want to go with 3 piece custom wheels like HRE (VERY expensive).

Most aftermarket wheels are:

F 8X18 50et
R 10X18 47et

These work but you'll need to pin your e-brake cable out of the way or it will rub.
