Question 335 MSport / Square OEM tire/wheel question -

so I've searched enough that I have managed to confuse myself - I know this question is redundant but hoping someone can help..

Current set on my MSport 335D is the typical 18x8 in the front and 18x8.5 in the rear with 225/40 & 255/35

Question is if I want to go to a square set up (assuming I have another complete set of wheels available to me) do I run the 8.5 all around or the 8.0 (I am hoping for the 8.5) and then what tire size?

I should add that I want the wheels flush - with my current set up I am running a 12mm BMS in the front and 15mm at the rear - keeping that in mind as well what size spacers would I run in the front (if any at all) to replicate my current look ("flushness" with the fender)? I'm probably off on this but I think a 10 mm spacer (with the 8.5) wheel will get me within 2mm of where I am currently at

front offset is 34 and rear is 37

TIA

Chris

you can do 8.5's all around... for a square setup I would do the 8.5 with 255/35/18 fronts and same for rears but with a 12mm spacer in rear.

do a test run, grab your rear passenger wheel and slap them on the front driver.. see how it looks..
