Tire Sizing - Replica 219M (19 inch wheels)

Here's the thought, what if we put 19 inch 219Ms on the M3?

The gunmetal 219M 18s looks pretty good, but I've always thought 19s of the same style would be amazing.

What I don't know are the right offsets to make it work. Can anyone give me the 219M specs + offsets or confirm that these 19 inch offsets would work? Here's the link to the wheels I found. Not exact to 219s, but very close. The idea would be to buy (4) 9.5s and compensate with spacers as necessary.

Cheap replica 219M's sounds like a bad idea to me. It makes no sense to spend money to replace OEM with a sup-par product. Improve on OEM with a quality wheel or stick with OEM.

Does anyone know the offsets for the base 19" wheels from the F10 M5? They are very similar to the gunmetal 219M wheels.

The offset is 35mm. I'm looking at those too but can't seem to find any pics of them on a car
