question about offsets on 18" rims for e92

I'm looking at a new set of 18's and have a choice between ET33 and ET22. Which offset will fill more wheel well and give a better stance on e92 with sport package?

For rear? +22. I'm running 9.5" +25 and it fills the wheel well perfectly on a 275/35/18 tire, Hankook RS3.

The offset will not fill up the wheel gap. The 9.5 +22 will however give you a more pronounced stance. Search for some photos of those specs before you buy, those guys normally would have to buy spacers to achieve that look/spec.

get the +22, lower the car and roll the fenders. you'll be glad you got the 22's instead of the 33's.

Yup, +22. Stretchnpoke and edirtaynine are among the most knowledgeable in this forum.

Thank you all for the feedback I also have the option to order ET15 on the 8.5" fronts, so should I go with those instead of ET35?

Cheers!
