I'm looking at getting some new 18s for my Msport 335i rwd. I want a slightly aggressive setup but don't know what offsets to get. I would like it to be flush. I'm looking at some 18x8.5 in front and 18x9 or 9.5 in the back. Just wanted some help to get the setup that I really want. I'm looking at some esr sr12s

Offset for the back could be +40 for 18x9.5 if staggered.

And what about the fronts?
I'm running 245/40/18 on front and 255/40/18 firehawk Indy 500s on 400m wheels

If that what you running now.. you have taller tires on the front than the back...people call it rake backward ( chin up).

You can run this
18x8.5 +35 245/40 or 235/45
18x9.5 +40 265/40

If you run 245/40 and 265/40 ... it will rake forward like the M4. Very small less diameter up front ... I think .3 inches

if you're not lowered you can go witih et30 front and et40 rear on 8.5/9.5 with 235/45/18 and 265/40/18 and itll be 26.3" in diameter

I am not lowered and running et35/45 f/r with 235/265 and here's how it sits:


with the same diameter. As you can see im fairly flush at this ride height but could go 5mm more aggressive front and rear
