Front tire rubbing

hey guys im posting this here because its not getting much attention in the wheel and tire section so maybe some of you can help.
car is 07 e92 335i on BC coils

long story short i bought a set of VMR V705 from....drum roll please...bimmian....i thought their rims what could go wrong as long as the specs are good....to bad they are not....

im pretty sure they sold me a +45 front wheel....

i tried to measure the offset of my wheels using some youtube videos,heres one that i used

if i did this correctly then i have a +45 wheel...when VMR told me they never made this....
my calculations using this videos go like this,
9 1/4inch(234.95mm) divided by 2=117.5
9.5inch(241.3mm) divided by 2=120.7
this is from floor to straight edge on back of rim.
6 1/4inch(158.75mm)
6.5inch(165.1mm)
measurement of mounting face to straight edge on back of rim.
so calculations as per the video,
117.5-158.75=-41 which in the video she says would mean +41
120.7-165.1=-44.4 so that would +44.4
i did it with 2 different sets of numbers just to see if i would land in the same ballpark offset.
im guessing thats close enough to verify that i have a +45 offset?

Offset should be printed on the back of the wheels

VMR says the offset is only a faint printing so since i got them powdercoated afterwards i wont be able to see it.

and yes spacers are my only option it seems

Contact Stance Factory (jay@stancefactory.com, tell them Anuk sent you). They regularly stock spacers for BMWs (and do tonnes of BC coilover installs ). A 15mm front spacer should do the trick.

No problem. They outsource alignments and should be able to point you in the right direction.
