You need to either measure the offset yourself or have a shop do it. I previously had 20" HRE P40 wheels with 255 tires up front, lowered on H&R race springs with no issues. I went to a very aggressive 19" HRE C93 (approx ET13) and figured the 255 would still work and I was wrong. I had to go down to a 245 to prevent the rubbing. Now it only slightly rubs when the suspension moves on tighter corners.

Basically you have to measure from the center of the rim to where the center of the wheel is.

Try this: https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

measuring the offset now isn't going to help you unless u plan on returning the wheels back to dpe and have them re make them.

If you don't return the wheels to dpe below are some ways that might make it fit. getting lower profile tires might help.... 30's instead of 35. is your car lowered on springs? adjusting the height might help. camber adjustment might help the rub on the top area of fender. spacers might help. slight rub on the plastic liner isn't a big deal because there's nothing important behind the plastic covers (driver side is just the car metal frame and passenger side is the washer fluid container and tubing).

Obviously you won't be able to change the offset, but if DPE claims the offset is "M3 fitment" and the offset is measured out to be less that ET22 or so, then it is not the standard offset you would find for the car.

Usually I like to know the source of the problem before I just starting changing things to find a solution...maybe that's just me though.
