Size Matters

Hey,

Can someone help me out in telling me what the limitations of the wheel sizes are on the standard brakes? (MY97 NOT STi)

As far as im aware the standard wheels are 5x114 16 x 7j ET 48

I want to upgrade to some lightweight wheels but im unsure about how low the offset can go to, i.e would 40 or 35 clear the brakes? and width, would anything higher than 7j protrude the arches?

Thanks.
