HELP! BBS LM fitment

Hi everyone,
I just got a set of bbs lms from another forum member, they were originally fit on a E46M3.
Fronts are 19x8.5 +32
Rears are 19x10 +25
I know the fronts are not proper offset for my E92, it might need a 10-12mm spacer to sit flush with the fender. However, I have seen people reverse mounted the face and get a lower offset. So I decided to go that route, since I do not want to mess around with spacers. When I checked my wheels today, it seems like my fronts are already reverse mounted, I asked the previous owner and he said he did not reverse the face. So I am pretty confused right now. So does it come from the factory like that? I have done lots of research and could not figured it out. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks everyone!

Front. Reverse mounted???

Rear. Regular mounted???

I see, it seems like spacer is the only way to go.
Thanks!

Thanks!
For a flush mount with an 8.5" et32 you need a 18-20+ mm spacer. I'm currently using a 12 mm spacer with the OEM 18" ET29 and my wheels are not flush. However, this is as far as I wanted to shift the front so I'm happy with how things look AND perform.

Ya, I will probably go front 15 rear 12. I do not want them stick out too much, also I am going to lower my car with H&R lower springs. Hope it turns out well.

Using a 15 mm spacer with your 32 mm offset is equivalent to my 12 mm spacer and 29 mm offset - I think you'll like it. I'm running an aftermarket suspension and I have zero rubbing issues with a lowered ride height and the 12 mm spacer.

I used a 18mm spacer up front and 15mm on the rears when I had those wheels. Not even close to sticking out.

Yes, I had already suggested to the OP that he'd need to run a 20+ mm spacer to get a "flush" fitment with those wheels.
