New set of VMRs, Need your spacer recommendations!

Just recently bought a set of VMR VB3's but currently not liking the front offset, not enough poke! Would you guys recommend running a 5mm or 10mm hubcentric spacer up front? I want to achieve a flush look...

Specs:
Fronts: 19x8.5 +40 235/35/r19
Rears: 19x9.5 +33 265/30/r19

I would measure your clearance to make sure (so you don't rub with your drop), but when my brother used a 8.5 +40et, we measured at least another 10mm before a flush look is achieved on his E92 with H&R springs.

If you were buying new wheels, why didn't you order in the more aggressive offset?

for vmr vb3s they only offer a +40 or +20 offset for 19x8.5's and IMO +20 is a bit too crazy for a lci

+20 offset would've been perfect from personal experience. For now, you can probably put a 15mm spacer up front and it will give you semi flushed look. For the rears, put a 10mm spacer and you should be golden.

Add a 10mm up front if you don't want to roll your fenders if you want to roll I'd go for a 15 up front and 10 in the rear

A 10mm spacer up front would definitely do the job!

You bought 8.5" et40 and you're surprised they're sunken in?

You need a 25mm spacer to be truly flush.
