    Not 100% sure what you mean by this, but if you are saying that you have a choice between 42 and 50 offset, then you should go with the 50. You want to stay as close to stock offset as possible.

    yea sorry i typed it wrong
    the rim choices have an offset range from 42 to 50
    given that the offset will be different will there be anything that would hurt the car like the speedo or anything?

    You shouldn't have any issues with that offset. You aren't changing the wheel size (like going to a 19 inch wheel) so you should be fine.
