recommendations on 19x10 square for E90 M3

Hey experts, would like your advice on a good offset for some custom wheels i am having made for my E90 M3. The car is 90% street but i will be taking it to the track occasionally and these will be used for both. I am ordering pilot super sports in 275/30 19 for the wheels. The car will have some eibach springs. I was told et 20 would work for the wheels but worried about rubbing up front. thinking maybe go et 22 just to be safe. i like it to be flush but not at the expense of rubbing.

thanks for your input!

I have a set of 275/35-18 on four 18x10 wheels, with a 25 offset, and the clearance is fine. With a 20 offset, unless you are set up with more negative camber than I would want for street use, the tire is going to be outside the fender.

On my 19x10 I ran 275/30/19 front and 275/35/19 rear on ET20 wheels, there is also a 15mm spacer in the rear making the final offset ET5.

There was rubbing with the 15mm spacer and I presume it would be gone with a 10mm or 8mm but I never got to try it since I sold the coupe.







Here is a coupe with 19x10 ET20 and 10mm spacer in rear with 265/30/19 all around - http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=439800
