E92 Flush fitment [Help]

Getting my E92 soon and I'm wondering if someone can help me out with a fitment question.

Had a search but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for..

For a set of 8.5" fronts & 9.5" rears, what will be the perfect offset to sit flush?

Been looking at a couple of sets that are et37/et30, et35/et42, et38/et42, et38 all round, and et40 all round.

Have no experience with the E92 so a little help would be great!

all those offsets are too high for a "flush" look. dont forget that tires are part of the whole equation with the wheel specs. and are you looking for 18" or 19"?

for 19s, i personally would suggest +25 front with 225/35 tires, +20 rear with 245/35 tires.

AND a healthy drop. stock suspension, i wouldnt bother with trying to look "flush".

Omg so many people now trying with the "flush" look as you put it. If your gonna try atleast go with something bigger the 8.5f and 9.5r. Go for something like 9 et25 and maybe 10.5 et32

always had a flush look on my other cars, looks good in my opinion.
Been looking for some wider rims but have found that most have been 8.5/9.5.
If I can find wider for a decent price I'd def go for them!

Anyway, found myself on http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ghlight=flush/ and have got most my answers from this.
