19x9.5 Square Setup?

I've read around and seen that it's possible to run 19x9.5 square. What tire size and wheel offset is recommended for flush fitment on msport suspension? Prefer not stretch tires too much.

Pictures would be great! Thanks in advance!

Factory adaptive shocks. Shorter bump stops

No bottoming out? Ive heard different stories about springs and I'm iffy about getting them if it bottoms out or could create problems

I have experienced a bottoming out on the front on large dips in the road a couple of times. It's not something that happens regularly. I have been happy with the springs. The ride quality is good and the ride height is nearly perfect IMO. Low enough to look great but not so low that the car isn't usable. No regrets from me. I have had many cars with coil overs and currently have an M3 with a high level setup. It's a wagon, I saw no need to go crazy with the suspension.

Here's a pic that best illustrates wheel fitment - HR Springs, no camber plates, no spacers, no rubbing, 9.5 et35, 255.35.19 Michelin 4S

Looks awesome I'll definitely be doing this setup. Does it sacrifice any turning radius with the 9.5s in front?

Zero turning radius impact.
