Difference between ET45 and ET35?

I am looking at a set of Cades Tyrus which are:

Front 19 x 8.5 et38
Rear 19 x 9.5 et35 or et45

Can anyone tell me are there any benefits/disadvantages of having one or the other?(et35 or 45)

Cheers!!

38mm offset at the front and 35mm at the rear is spot on for your car.

et45 at the rear is fitment for the earlier e46 models. Will not fill out the arches on e9x models.

There is a calculator for wheel offsets on this very website that will reveal all the mystery surrounding offset - check it out as its simple to understand and means you won't end up buying wheels that'll screw up your cars wheel arch clearance

it really is that simple though. ET35 will sit 10mm further out from the hub than ET45.
