I'm in Eibach lowered springs and don't intend to get a camber kit/ plates

My option is to get the non-Ericsson offsets

20x9 et 32 (Ericsson offset is 8)

20x10 et 45 (Ericsson offset is 18)

My question is if I get the above setup and run 20mm spacers all round, I should have absolutely no issues with rubbing and setup should still be reasonably flush with 245/275 tires?

Also will the size of the lips be different from the Ericsson setup? Or are the lips dependent of rim width and not offset, therefore lip size will be the same?

The above setup is actually listed for the BMW F10 so I was thinking also when comes time to change wheels (and it will happen), I'll have more options to sell, rather than limiting to M3 only.

Any comments or thought would be greatly appreciated
i run these setup :


20 x 9 et 15 245/30/20

20 x 10 et 20 275/20/20

have no rubbing at all and i am lowered as well. And yes, the lips size would be smaller because of the higher offset of the wheels. Generally, higher wheel offsets give you smaller lips compared to lower wheel offsets.
