I need help pick out my Tire and wheels without rubbing on my car

I have a question for yall.. I have an e90 335i. I already dropped my car about 1.3 inch in front. You know H & R sport model. Prior to my H & R installed, I had a Katami from TSW 19 inches wheels and tires. It rubbed when i make a turn. I need to know what should the size of offset be so it would not rubbed with my car.?? I know i should use the tire and size measurment. i dont understand how it work anyways. im more like a performance guy than tire and wheel dude. BTW anyone or have an opinion on RPM Wheels or
http://www.performanceplustire.com/p...932#prodAnchor..


Should i get 30, 35 or 38 offset with H&R sport without rubbing my car??

Depends on width of the wheels, as well, not just offset. Also tire width and aspect ratio.
