tsw nurburgring 18x8.5 square setup, offset?

Just bought a white 08 e92 335xi (base suspension) and have settled on purchasing a square set of 18x8.5 tsw nurburgring in matte gunmetal along with a set of 235/40/18 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's. Since tirerack doesn't seem to carry them and thus I can't look up recommended specs, what's the lowest offset I could get (I want the most concave look I can get out of them)?

Oh, and if any sponsoring vendors would like to offer me a sweet deal, feel free to pm me, my zip code is 06457

Just so you know. I don't think TSW nurburgring have different concavity with different offsets. It is always flat faced. No concave at all. What offset they have to offer?

Yea they're def not going to be as concave as VMRs, but I'll take whatev I can get. Looks like for 5x120 bolt pattern, I can only find 40mm for 18x9.5 and cant find anything for 18x8.5 for that bolt pattern. Gonna have to make some calls tomorrow

Like edirtaynine said, with this wheel offset don't have any affect to concavity. It's always flat. As for the offset you can easily go with 8.5 et20 at rear and et35-25 front. Even lower offsets can work.
