Wheel offset question

Ok , I think I have the wheel offsets straight, but would appreciate verification before ordering wheels...

My 930 currently has bbs 8x16 et11 up front... Which is way wrong. The wheels stick out on both side. I believe stock et is 23. Previous owner put these on, don't know what they came from.

Plan is to get 7x17, et23. If I have this correct , the outside rim will be pulled inward 1 inch. Inner rim is the same distance from the wheel well. Tire is one inch narrower.

The rear bbs looks fine as is with the current 10x16, et23. Problem is,the imitation Fuchs only come in a 9x17...et only available in 15. Will the rear tire now stick out 7mm further? Is that right? But if the tire goes from a 10 inch to a 9, then it negates it... Right?

Any help appreciated. Anyone know what the original bbs wheels may have been for?

Thank.

Bo
