Offsets for Flush Fitment

For those with aftermarket wheels:

For a set of 19x9.5 and 19x8.5 and stock camber what offsets will allow the wheels to sit flush with the fenders

(I'm experienced with wheels, offsets, fitment etc just not the proper offsets for F30 yet)

If possible, please post a pic of your fitment with details on the wheels, tires, and spacers of applicable.

Thanks

Luke curious about the aspect ratio: What if you have gone with 235/35/19 and 255/30/19 instead? Is it wider or thinner tire?

the first number is the width of the tire, the second is the height of the sidewall

There is some room for even more aggressive offsets as you see from the pics.

It'll be thinner. The middle number is the sidewall height i percent of the width.

Hahaha

Yeah, they're sitting in the garage now until spring...running the factory wheels for the winter. Don't worry, I will be SUPER vigilant about avoiding potholes and curbs...I'm still hearing the "slam" sound in my dreams...
