Default Wheel offset / adapting questions.

I recently got super frustrated that there were so few 5x108 wheel options so I decided I would get hubcentric adapters to adapt to 5x100 because wheels are so common in that size.

I've got a nice set of 5x100 17" BBS wheels ET42 that I would like to put on my 89 740 turbo and I'm unsure how thick the adapters should be to give me the correct offset. I though maybe 25mm would be the correct thickness for the adapters but I dont know how that works into the 42mm offset that the wheels I want to install have

Assuming the width of the BBS are 7,5" , you should have plenty of room with 30mm adapters.
