Need help on wheel setup!

Hi, I have a 335i coupe and I'm going for the PD-M widebody and forgestar f14.
My question would be what's the best offset to go for?
I'm looking for somewhere around 18x9.5 18x10.5 with 275/295 fat tires for tracking.. since i live in vancouver, i'd like to have tires like 615k on them


thank you

My advice: get the widebody done, then take measurements to determine desired offset.
If you buy wheels first, there's no guarantee they'll end up where you expect after the bodywork is done.

thank you, i've thought about that, but the widebodykit seems to be slightly wider then the e92 m3, so i'm thinking of pushing a little more to the outside with many others' e92m's setup.. the car is my daily so i'm thinking of having it done as soon as possible since the wheels will take a very long time to arrive. i'll take your route if there are no solutions
