Thinking of going 35mm and using a 15mm spacer to make it 20 instead, seemed to work just fine for Brock judging by his last two pictures he posted. What do you think?

we have the same car (pre lci), with my current offset, using a level my front wheel is slightly, very slightly, inside the outer most part of the fender. and my back is slightly outside, since my tires are stretched it looks even. that being said i think you have more room in the front then in the back. as a matter of fact i was going to change my tires to 245/40/18 up front and 265/35/18 in the back and worst case i would have to put on my 5mm spacers.

Thanks for the offer, pretty set on some LM reps though. Getting ready to pull the trigger. Brock, gonna start off with a 25 offset up front and go from there, I think that will make me happy considering my last set was 35

that should look really good, make sure you post photos when you get your wheels on and post tire size i am interested to see a 265 on the rear if you go that route.

New thought, 9.5 square setup, keeping the et22 in the back, et33 up front? Anyone heard of or seen that done before?

if i could do it over again i would get e60 550i m wheels in 19x8.5 et20 with 12mm spacers in the rear and 245/35/19, i think if the wheel has a lip they should be staggered.
