Wheel offsets for M Suspension?

Hi all, noob modder here.

I'm looking to replace my staggered OEM 19" 442m's on my 2014 F32 with aftermarket 19x8.5, 19x9.5's.

The front wheels seem to be straightforward with ET35 being standard from what I can tell. At this point I'm trying to decide how aggressive I can go with the rear wheel offset. The set I have picked out come in both ET40 and ET33.

I will be running the new wheels with stretched 225/40/19 255/35/19 tires.
My car has adaptive M suspension and I don't plan on going lower, I don't think I could handle it with the roads here in Dallas.

I love the aggressive fitments posted here, but most seem to be with aftermarket suspension. So, how aggressive can I go under these circumstances without looking like an F-350?

Any pics/advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the board and to the world of modding!

We would recommend the following fitments for your application:

19" Staggered:
Front: 19x8.5" ET35 with 235/40-19 tires
Rear: 19x9.0" ET40 with 255/35-19 tires
- Front 225/40-19 tires may also be used.


19" Aggressive Staggered:
Front: 19x8.5" ET35 with 235/40-19 tires
Rear: 19x9.5" ET43 with 265/35-19 tires
- Direct fit.
- Popular fitment.
- Front 225/40-19 tires may also be used.

Both of these setups should work well with your application and will not leave your F32 looking like a lifted truck!
