I run some 16x7 Ronal wheels with ET37 on my '87 5k, and they won't
rub, but it's _very_ tight in the rear, even with 205/55 tires. 7.5"
and ET35 would _really_ rub in the rear, unless you have retrofitted
200tq20v rear fenders to your car.. :-)

BTW: Whose idea was the wheel skirts? They just make most after-market
wheels rub, and don't look that good either..
