Arrow HELP : I need me some TE37's :)

I am currently shopping for some VOLK te37 sl's and need some advise from the fitment experts. I would like to see how aggressive I can get without losing practicality of a DD. I want to keep it with 18's in staggered set up and want to run 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 (I really want maximum concave-ness tho.. I hate the flat TE look w/ weak offsets).

My current suspension set up is as follows:
Lowered on Swift springs + Bilstein B8 sport struts
Front camber (-.8) + Rear camber (-2.2)

I am not looking for a crazy stretch with tires. If possible I want to reuse my Michelin PSS in 225/40 & 255/35 tires. In the end, I just want a semi-flush/semi-aggressive look without having to downgrade performance.

I would really appreciate it if you fitment experts can advise what offset I should run and appropriate tire sizing as well.

Thanks in advance!

-Jason

I would say 18x9.5 et20-30 front and 18x10.5 et25-35 and you can use your PSS tyres. Rear will at the very least need fender roll and some camber. Front wont necessarily need any modifications, maybe little bit camber. But you already have some added camber.

I have 18x9.5 et22 with 225/40/18 front. No modifications only -1 camber. Rear is 18x10.5 et15 with 255/35/18 rolled fenders and -3 camber. You have LCI, so 18x10.5 et23 will extend to same place as mine, but also PSS are fatter tyres. I still rub occasionally to that fender/bumper bracket.<- This will be taken care soon.

This one has 18x9.5 et30 with 235/40/18 front

http://varrstoen.com/narcissism/varrstoen-es2-bmw-335i/

These are 18x9.5 et22 225/40/18 and 18x10.5 et20 245/35/18. Once again et28 rear will extend to same point on lci.

Lci with 18x10.5 et32 and 265/35/18.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=530974

Lci with 18x10.5 et33 with 245/35/18, but with "weak" front.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=907165

Pre-lci with 18x10.5 et17 with 265/35/18 shaved fenders tho. Same as lci with et25.
