I ask because I am running 19 x 8.5 + 35
19 x 9.5 +45

@ OP, I have had no trouble with those offsets, and I have KW V2 with about the same drop as you are requesting..

Lets say it was rubbing so bad i almost killed my tire in 10 mins of driving. Check my picture out. If your car is higher than mine you will have no issues but if not you will run in to issues.

Love the picture, your set up is pretty much identical to mine, rim style wise. Were you rubbing in the front or back? And what kind of coil overs were you running? Were they KW or BC?

My height I am currently at is pretty much the same in your picture..

Hi slmdgee,
I see that you have the 335i muffler on your 328i, may i know if you need an adaptor for that, coz i m wondering if the downpipe on a 328i is smaller than the 335i?

Hi all,
i have been discussing with my friend and since we are planning to install forgestar CF10 Front: 245/35/19 8.5 ET35 and Rear 255/35/19 9.5 ET42. I wonder if the rear will rub? any suggestion?

Tks in advance
Chris

Is it safe to say for a square setup, I should go with 19x8.5 ET35 235/40/19.
What about 19x9 ET35 with 235/40/19?

Stock would be 225/40/19

I'm running on H&R sport springs, and want to get new wheels and tires. I'm planning to buy the VMR VB3 19's, 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear, but not sure about what offset and tire fitment I should go with. Any suggestions? thanks!

Question

I'm on 8.5 ET35 Front & 9.5 ET40 Rear, the rear looks flush but the front definitely need a spacer, I'm thinking of 5mm, my friend say 10, I just want to even out with the rear, what do you guys suggest? 5 or 10mm?

Beautiful wheels!

What tire size did you chose front and rear?

You dont have possibility to borrow either 5 or 10 mm and try? Hard to give advice only based on your photos, but i think 5 mm might be enough.

The tires are 225 front and 255 rear, my thoughts are it should be able to take a 10mm without any rubbing but it will not be even with the rear, it will stick out a little further more than the rear. 5mm should evenly flush with the rear. I'm not those hellaflush person, don't need to push it all the way out till it almost rub~

I got 5mm put on the front, I felt that I really should have gone with 10mm, any suggestions? Should I go another 5mm/7mm further out in the front? Thinking on a set of 12mm spacers to be put on the front.
