335xi coupe 19" wheel offsets

I'm about to pull the trigger on my summer setup: 19" CSL reps.

Wheels are 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear. Rubber will be Eagle F1: 265/30 rear, 235/35 front.

My options are ET+30, +32, and +38 offsets.

I'll be doing the +38 for fronts, which should be fine, just a hair more extended than the VMR VB3s.

Should I do 30 or 32 for the rears? I want a flush look, but conservative. I'm not dropped, and if I ever do lower the car, it would be modest, not slammed. The VB3s look pretty good at +30, so how much more inset will 32 be? Noticable? Am I driving my self insane for no reason?


Thanks for the help!

For your offset, I would get the ET32 offset for the rears. It will be flush, and it shouldn't rub. It should be okay with a modest drop haha.

The fronts could be a better offset though.. Have you seen the MiRo CSLs??

They have offsets just for your E92. ET35 in the front and ET33. They're as flush as it will go, and even with a drop, you will not rub with our recommended tire sizes, which is the one you seem to be going with.

Check it out: http://www.**********s.com/product.a...tyle_wheels_JY

There's so much more than just offsets for this one too. They're lighter, hypersilver finish, have a more detailed design in its spokes than its leading competitor, and is JWL VIA and ISO certified

Here's some pictures:

I'm going with the UED CSL Reps. I don't like the little flair on the Miros, and the UEDs are deeper on the rear.

Staggered 19s - ET35 front, and ET30 rears.



Thanks for your help.

No. According to UED, they are a third version.

I think you mean VMR. The UED ones are just the Wheelmax CSLs that have been available for sometime now: http://www.wheelmax.com/product.asp?ProdId=40711
