Help with wheel offset?

Trying to source a set of winter rims/tires for my RS3. Current OEM setup is front 19x8.5 255/30/19 ET46 and rear 19x8 235/35/19 ET42, I will be using a square setup for winters. On 1010tires, the cheapest set of rims is 19x8.5 235/35/19 with offset +30. All the other suggestions are 19x8.5 235/35/19 with offset +35. Will the +30 work, or will it make them stick out too much? Better to get something with offset closer the to the stock rims?

That will likely stick out to much where you will rub on bumps. I currently have 18x8.5 ET36 on 235/40/18 and without around -2.0 camber in the front I will rub. Ideally I would stick with something around ET40 give or take.

So even +35 is too much? DAI Replica's website shows they're compatible but I don't know how accurate that is.

edit: I found some with +40, guess I'll stick with those to be safe. Thanks!
