It's usually best to get the offset as close to stock as possible (especially when lowered), so get the 40+ offset. 40+ means that the mounting surface is 40mm towards the outward face, from the center line of the wheel. Similarly, 15+ means the mounting surface is 15mm towards the outward face from the center line of the wheel.

I'm sure you've seen staggered rims, they get that effect by using a 40 offset in the front, 15 offset in the back.
