Thumbs up It's all about the offset!!!

Alright guys, over the weekend with the help of BRRacing and their expertise, we were able to fit et17 19x10 rear to my e92!!! Haven't seen anyone tried it yet with minor fender work. I am heppy with the outcome. Big thanks to Walter for his fender work, and Bruce and Rob for their insight and expertise to make this happen! So they pulled and rolled the fender and did some rear bumper modding, and did -.3 cambering from stock set-up. No big issues with this set up. Here are the pics, enjoy!

UPDATED PHOTOS Added:





















This was in the works for a while, and test fitting spacer sizes, and we ended up that with 19x10, et17 was the max we could go without altering the rear bumper. I've tried et22 and et 25 with no problem nor cambering.

Looks like you need wider tires.

Whats the point...your not running a wider tire and the fitment does not look aggresive because of what they did to the fender?

It's actually LC lemans et 37 with 20mm spacer. Thanks for your comment! Wanted to go more, but we were limited by the rear bumper. I can go lower offset, but then have to do bumper work.

The point is to run a wheel with fat lip, and with lower offset you can do that. With wider tires you can't run as aggressive offset. But Atleast now if I want to run for example 285 with higher offset, I can. Actually when you see side shots and from the rear, it does look pretty aggressive. To each is their own, I wanted to see how low of an offset I can do with minor fender work.

LOL I am running 20mm spacers right now on a et 37 19x10 wheel. I might eventually do the bumper work to completely fill what's left of the gap! But as of now, I am satified to even run this offset. It actually doesn't look that bad, pics do not do it justice, prob the angles I took. Whatever wheels I choose will probably have pretty good lip!
