Quick advice on Varrstoen ES5 19" Square setup. Will it work?

Hi everyone

I have been desperately after the Varrstoen ES5 / LM-R reps.

I want to fit a square setup as I want to reduce under steer.
My only issue is that the rims in 9.5" comes in one offset... And I am not sure if it will work on my E92 Pre LCI 335i


Offset 20 for both front and rear... Is this possible? I DO NOT want any rubbing issues what so ever. I may use spacers to achieve the desired look.



If this does not work. They have a 10.5 rim with an ET of 22. For the rear... I do not want to run overly stretched tyres of anything. I hate the stretch and poke look and I prefer function.

HUGE THANKS!

ET20 and no stretched tires and no rubbing won't happen.

Im just going to put this link here this is what 19x9.5 et23 square setup with 235/35 tyre looks.

You cant get those wheels fit without some stretch and poke.Spacers would push wheels even more out as well as 10.5 et22.

Thanks all!

This is not what I wanted to here

A 235 tyre on a 9.5" wheel is just stupid! What is the point in running a wide wheel for extra grip if you cannot run the tyre.

So what do people suggest?
If you see this link below and go to the last page (wheels I want). You case they only have 2 options which seem to be a very aggressive fitment.
I do not mind running a little stretch. Maybe 265 on a 9.5" rim.... Not possible i take it with these specs?

I do have a pre LCI, so I should have a little room to play with compared to LCI cars...?

I have just figured out that these wheels are technically m3 specs...

Do people successfully run this setup without any rubbing?

I have my rear fenders rolled... Would I be. In the rear?
How about the front I do not want to rub at all.
I'm lowered on H&R springs and Koni dampers
