Advice on Apex wheels Arc-8

I'm still debating on a set of wheels. Apex Arc-8 are in the running.

I'm on a 328i xdrive, stock suspension.

thinking 19 x 8.5 et38 for the fronts on 225/40/19

what would you do for the rears?

19x9 et 38

or

19 x 9.5 et 33

I have 19x9.5 ET33s on my VMR setup lowered on Dinan Springs. They fit great and looked very nice. Would not go higher offset and smaller width because it would look more sunken in.

How about 19x9 38et all around and put 5mm spacer on rear? It will save you in the long run and less understeer.

Garage List
I just put 18" EC-7s on my 335i, 8.5" ET 35 front, 9.0" ET 43 rear. Check my "garage" photos to see how nicely they fit. Those offsets were per APEX recommended fitment for the F30.
