Wheel offset?

Hi Guys,

Quick few questions about offsets of the wheels on my motor.

Sooo the wheels, Im still not sure of the name of these wheels either so that would be nice to know.



Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

I believe that they are the 'MV3' wheels.

As far as offset goes I think it's ET35 all round as standard on an E92 (staggered) but unsure as to whether that translates to the other chassis types.

Is your setup staggered or is it the same all round?

Thanks for the reply and the name, its all because Im planning on buying some spacers for the front and back and obviously current offset helps me figure which sizes to go with.

As for the wheels they are staggered.

225/40 front tyres

255/35 rear tyres

If this helps.

I can only go by what I own (E92).

I only ask if they are staggered as they may be different offsets front to rear which is something you may need to consider.

To check the offset yourself you can remove a front and rear wheel and check inside where there shoud be an 'ET??' stamped which is the wheels offset. I would recommend this unless an E90 owner comes and confirms whether I'm right or not as they may be different from the E92.

They're 8j et34 front 8.5j et37 rear, no different from saloon to coupe.

If its just for choosing spacers, I find just going out there with a ruler and measuring distance from where the wheel is to where I want it to be has never failed me.
