Default Wheel size and offset for classic with ABW arches?

This set in particular:
https://www.abwmotorsport.co.uk/prod...es-6-piece-set

What have people used on theirs? Track car, semi slicks. Don't want any catching on lock so an 8 or 8.5 is fine by me unless a 9 will fit.

Cheers, I'm in two minds regarding spacers.

If those are ET25 with 20mm spacers, what ET would 8.5 wheels need to be to get that same footprint?
