16" Volvo 850 wheels on 2013 Focus: offset issues?

I'm currently on the lookout for 16" wheels to use as a winter set, and I've found a set of Volvo 850 wheels that I thought might work. But the seller says the offset is 35mm. Will that work with the 2013 Focus? Stock offset for the 16" wheel is 45mm, right?

The wheels will just sit 10mm further outboard than stock. What's the width of the wheel?

Hard to say, honestly. Some digging on the interwebs seems to return a 43mm offset for these wheels, which are from an 850 Platinum edition that apparently made its first appearance in 1996. So if that's the case and this site is right: http://www.wheel-size.com/size/volvo/850/1996/# , they're 6.5" wide.

That sounds correct. You shouldn't have any issues with them.

These:

I like the sawblade ones, just couldn't find any for my cheapass budget. Really like the 6 and 7 spoked later models, but they were all pretty expensive for winter wheels.
