No, that is not how wheel offsets work. Every wheel has its own offset. If you wanted a zero offset, you would need a 41mm spacer up front and 50mm spacer in the rear. The offset is not correlated between front or rear wheels.

The offset of the wheel is the distance from the mounting surface to the center line of the wheel.

Different cars require different widths and offsets. We recommend x8.5 ET35 front and x9.5 ET45 rear. The position of the wheel also will be determined by the width, so when calculating those things you need all the info you can find.
