Blackline Alloy Original Fitment Dimensions

Hey all!

Seemingly a simple question, but one that I couldn't definitely answer through forum trawling and general googlery - What are the fitment dimensions (offset & width) of the original Blackline alloys?

Finding info that says ET 33 to ET 35, and 7.5 J to 8 J... So anyone got some definitive answers for me?

Sizing up some wheel spacers to bring my current aftermarket alloys (cheers previous owner!) back out to at lease the original clearance from the hub uprights.. My aftermarkets are 8J ET38 5x100 (fitted with wobble bolts) with 58.1 spigot rings.. So the inner shoulder is running a little closer to the uprights... and I found some harsh edge wear on the NSF inner shoulder, and corresponding witness/rub marks on the uprights...

Will get the tracking checked this week to make sure it's still spot on, but I want to try and bring the wheels out a bit!

Once I've got some appropriate spacers, I'll sort out whether I need new bolts too!

A new contender! Not seen ET32 anywhere yet

Looks like I'm heading for 5mm spacers.... Would at least bring me out to ET33...

Would like to avoid anything larger as I don't really want to go hub-centric at these low thicknesses...

I found these specifications on italian alfa forum for GT Blackline. Maybe are different for UK edition.

As a follow up, has anyone use these spacers: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191877254711

Looks the business (5mm 5x98 PCD 58.1 center bore), a fair bit cheaper than Alfitsi, but no hole for the brake disc locating pin... Then again mine aren't fitted so no loss there... At any rate I can always just drill them out in future if needs be...
