Alpina Replicas & wheel offset

So here's my question. I am thinking about getting Alpina B7 style wheels. I found a set which are 19x8.5 with a 35 offset. There is also a staggered set available with I believe with a 19x9 or 19x9.5 rear but has a 20 offset.

I am not to familiar about the offset on which will fit and what looks good. What are your opinions?

Thanks for the info. Do you think I should run a squared set-up or go with a slightly staggered with a 255/35/19 on the rear and keep the 225/40/19 up front.

This is a great idea! Alpina wheels would look awesome on the F30. Also, if you do 8.5 all around, then do a 245 square or 245/255. I have 245/255 on a 8.5 inch square setup, only because I didn't want to have less grip in the back than stock. I already get wheel spin with 255 in the back when flooring it. But if you prefer to be able to rotate, then 245 will be your best choice.

Momo, 255-35-19 should be good all around too on 19x8.5 yes, with a et33?

Unless you are making custom fender flares, the 20" offset won't work

40-45 is a good fitment for the rear. You can use a spacer on the 19x8.5 ET35 to push it out a little and keep the setup squared too.
