RE: 93-95 90q - Plus sized wheels/tire BTDT

If you're referring to a 4000 Quattro:
I'm using 15x7" wheels with 37mm offset and 205/50-15 tires. Had to roll the
fender lips in the back and front (?!) for clearance when cornering hard.
Car is lowered about 1.5" and has very stiff suspension. Just ordered some
16x7.5" wheels with 35mm offset and 215/40-16 tires -- this setup will be
about .3" wider but .4" shorter, so it should still clear.

Since we're on this wheel kick, what is a good offset for a 4000S in a 15"
or 16" wheel?  Something that would fill out the wheel wells, but not have a
problem with rubbing.
