Wheel help!!

So I'm trying to buy some 19 inch VMR VB3's but the offset they have right now is 19x8.5 ET40 for the front and 19x10 ET38 for the rear. I'm worried about the ET 40 and ET 38. Can anyone help me on the fitment if this would work and what the downside is? They are out of ET 20s

Not sure that 40 would fit the front. I have a 35 offset on the front and with 255/35 front tires I have about 3mm of clearance on the strut tower.

Seriously, I can't fit a finger between the tire and the strut tower.
