I'm talking about aftermarket wheels. I'm trying to buy a set of BBS wheel for the Odyssey which are 17x8 with +35 offset....

Assuming they are 5x114.4mm bolt pattern, they would mount up to your wheel hub. However, with that size and offset, they would stick out beyond the fender. In an 8 inch wheel, you'd need an offset at about +50. Better yet, don't go with anything wider than a 7.5 inch.

You should also take into account that whenever you put wheels on that require an offset from the normal center you are shifting the forces applied to the suspension, bearings, etc. This can have serious effects and often results in premature failure of items like wheel bearing which are designed to have the forces (ie moment of torque) applied at a specific point. When the wheel moves out, the moment of torque is multiplied and thus the forces become more extreme.

Those rims probably look good, but are they worth the future failures they may well incur. Honda may not cover such failures because of the nonstandard wheel spacing.

I'm also betting that with the very low profile tires sitting on these rims you're going to cause lots of interior rattles to appear that would not have been an issue with the standard wheel/tire setup.

Too wide, not enough offset. Depending on the tire you choose, it would really "stick out" beyond the wheel well.
Mine are 17 by 7.5 with 40 mm offset and they are fine with a 235/55 tire, but I would not want them "out" any further.
