More offset (positive) will move the wheel farther into the car. If you bought zero offset wheels, the wheel would be sticking out of the fender. So you need to buy something like 40mm offset which will leave the wheel inside the fender. Then, after you install the wheels for the first time, measure the gap b/w the sidewall and the inside of the fender. Get a spacer for the hub that will allow you to fill the gap. A spacer reduced (more negative) the offset of the wheel. Basically, you want to overshoot the offset a little and then adjust with some spacers.
