Advice needed for E93 and offset VMR VB3 19'

Hi from Russia, I'm going to order VMR VB3 from America, but I have a question about offset on E93 pre LCI. Could you please advise me what offset to use on the front wheels and hopefully not to do any changes and feel rubbing?

Size, Front: 19"x8.5" +40mm or +35mm
Size, Rear: 19"x9.5" +33mm

Thank you in advance.

19x8.5 et35 with 235/35/19 front and 19x9.5 et33 with 265/30/19 rear and it will fit without any rubbing or modifications to your car. But why from America? I'm pretty sure there are places closer to you. At least member RDTeam ordered from some place in Switzerland. You should ask him where.

Thanks, but I found out that VB3 has only 40 offset, so in this way I will have to use "adapters" (I don't know the exact word ) + 5 mm

Can I use my current tires for the rear 255/30/19?

Correct word is spacer. You don't need to use spacers, if you don't want to use. But if you want spacers use 10mm thick those are hub centric. Sure you can use 255/30/19 and if you have 225/35/19 front tyre that can be used also.

Guys, I have a problem, VMR has no rear 19x9.5 et33 on stock, so I have to wait till May but in this way I'll receive them only in June/July and it is too late. I have found out that i can use 19x10 et 38, so the result will be
19"x8.5" +40mm
19"x10" +38mm
How it will be looks like and will I have any rubbing etc. on my stock e93 - 325 (I think my rear arch is lower than e92 due to roof mechanism).

No rubbing. It will be 1mm more out than 9.5 et33 and it has more concave. You can still use your 255/30/19 tyre with that, but it's just little bit more stretched than it would be on 9.5. http://tyrestretch.com/10.0_255_30_R19/

Thanks, tire looks too stretched, is there a chance that it can be dismounted by itself ?

No and it's not that stretched. Also how stretched it is depends a lot from tyre brand. You could upgrade to 265/30/19 tyre. Here is few more with 255/30/19 on 10 wide.

You could also do
8.5et20
9.5et22

That will be flush with no spacers and very little stretch. With those tire sizes you might not need to roll your rear fenders, but if you went up to a 265 in the rear you might have to.
