The stock fitment for my car is 205/60/15 on BBS with 45mm offset.
I am running 205/55/16 Dunlop SP8000 on MOMO Ferrari with 38mm offset.

The offset difference has thrown my wheels outwards so that tyres
started to rub rear fenders in fast sharp corners on a track. In order
to remedy this problem, I had to roll the rear fender lips outwards.

The effect of this plus one conversion on the cars' handling was HUGE!
