I think mine are offset 45, I'll have to check... I have a slight problem with mine due to them being 9" wide on the front - I cant drop the front any lower on the coilovers, as the adjuster would sit on the alloy or tyre. This will soon be easily solved by taking the helper springs out, but its something to bear in mind - get them 8" wide at the most I would say!
Again, due to the width, and the fact I needed a 3mm spacer to get them on with the coilovers, they do rub on the arch at the height its at now - but this is very, very occasional, probably happened 3 or 4 times in about 2 months - when cornering quickly with 3 people in the corner, or very large pot holes!
The backs on the other hand will go right up into the arch, never scrub or anything! They're 9" wide too.
So you'll be fine as long as you get 8" wideys and the right offset, more than that and you may have a few niggling points, but not much at all!
The install is on hold until I get my uni assessment out the way in a week or so - I shouldn't even be on here, lol 
Just realised I made a mistake with measurements in my post up there ^^^ The front wheels are 8.5" wide and causing problems, so definately only 8" wide if i were you! Sorry about that, but woulda felt dreadful if you bought 8.5s after I said I was having problems with 9s, and then you had problems too!!!
well the 19's were on when i got it and i loved them but because of the 4 motion system you really have to change at least two tyres at the same time and didn't want to be an absolute fortune eveytime i needed new feet , plus the 35mm profile i had was very hard on the wheels and on my bum especially the state some of the roads are in down my way
