Hello everyone. I have an 04 Ignis Sport and im about to purchase new rims and tyres. Will 15 x 8 rims with 0 offset fit my car? If not, what offset(s) are suitable? I could not find a straight answer in other threads.

Unlikely.

The best information I could find tells me that your rims should have an offset of about +45 with 14" and standard.

Going to a 0 offset will pull the wheels in toward the brake rotor, which will cause scrubbing at full lock.

You are best to get under the car, measure the clearance you have at full lock at both the front and rear of the tire, then work out what size rim you can put on.

Thanks for your help, Howsie. Im pretty sure reducing the offset( e.g from +45 to +10) will actually move the rim further from the caliper ( & outwards closer to the guard lip). Apparently,a 15x8 195/50 r15 et25 clears everything fine at standard ride height. I just found a "tyre visualizer/ comparer" website that indicates the difference between various tyre/rim combinations at various offsets. It is gonna be close if they do fit.

So it turns out a 15"x8" +15 fits fine. . No clearance issues anywhere. No modifications or spacers required.
