Need help with offsets

Hello, I need help with offsets..

Tried going to LTMW yesterday to put on Rep. rims, Varrstoen es112 19x11 +25 and 19x9.5+20

Needless to say, they told me from the get go it wouldn't work, but I had placed the order before that with Varrstoen. I am planning on returning them Monday (did not mount tires)

From what everyone told me, if I want to run those size rims, I would need the specs to be:
19x11 +44
19x9.5+38

I talked to Varrstoen and they said they do not make offsets that high, (highest offsets they go is +35) so it is looking like I will not be running Varrstoen's anymore..

Can someone tell me if the + 44 and + 38 set up would work? I think I read somewhere the F30 has a minimum +36 and up?

Another Question, I have old rims from another car, but they are different bolt pattern. They are from a 2009 Volvo S80, they are Asanti 19's fronts and backs (I do not know offsets off the top of my head, have to check on that Monday) but the bolt pattern is 5x108 for the volvo and I believe the F30 bolt pattern is 5x120. Do you think there is any way I could get a adapter and possibly be able to use the Volvo rims on the F30? Or is that impossible and not going to work too?

Any info would be appreciated..

Have you considered fender rolling? Only way to be sure that they won't rub. I have not seen any f30s run that aggressive offset.

The lower offsets (+20 and +25) stuck out way too far. I also recommended fender rolling, but it is just plastic, they said rolling the fenders wouldn't work either

U gotta order wheels with custom offset.

19x11 +44
19x9.5+38
those offset are almost the same as what I ordered for my Vorsteiner.
Can't be 100% sure they will fit, as my wheel has not yet arrive. Probably a bit of fender rolling might be necessary for the rear & the Front should clear just fine.

Adding adapter on F30 will make the offset even lower, in the end the wheel wont fit,
I've seen wheel Hub being re-drilled on old bimmer, so it can be double PCD 120 & 112(merc PCD), but can't guarantee that is safe.

my suggestion is Order a wheel that can be custom offset, Save u all the trouble.

I'm still waiting for the wheel to arrive. was estimated end of this month by the wheel shop, but I doubt it, prob gonna see it at mid November.
