Hello mate - sorry i can't help directly but i just had the same questions and trawled through this thread in the wheels and tyres section (https://www.caddy2k.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=12). Most rim size and tyre combinations have been asked in there so you should be able to find what you need (as i did).

No chance with that width and that offset if you want to open the side door.

Wheel size calculator here.

You'll have to get your tape measure out and go and see what the clearance is from your current wheels, and work from that. With my standard 16s, I think I'd have gotten away with an absolute max of 45mm extra rim-poke, but have decided against wheels and lowering, as it's gonna cost heaps to do properly.

As you’ve already got them why don’t you just try them on?

It’s more just to see if anyone else got them or have tried 👍🏻👍🏻

With 8.5 ET 40 you will get about 5-10mm clearance max
