I don't know what 13X7 inch reverse rims are, but I think if you increase the offset (like from 35 to 40), the rim of the wheel will actually be pulled further in under the body of the car. If you went from a 35 offset to a 0, then your wheel would be sticking out.

Well the 19x8.5 (235-35-19) i had on my car were 32 offset and they were totally even with the fender so i would go with the 35 and that should be perfect. If you go with the even look you may have problems with lowering so up to you.
