IIRC, reverse mounting an LM face gives about 6mm, so you'd be at a +19. Will better match the poke you may have in the rear.
Revers mounting the front

Thank you T

LMs are so amazing. I had them on my E60 M5, and now chris s is sporting my set on his white E92 M3.

I'm assuming "reverse mounting" the faces just means reassembling the wheel so that the wheel face is now sandwiched between the inner and outer rim halves instead of the wheel face being mounted to the outside of the outer rim half. So offset becomes more aggressive by going inner rim half/wheel face/outer rim half instead of inner half/outer half/wheel face. Does doing this in any way negatively affect the wheel's strength or integrity by changing the load distribution from the original design?
Why yes, paradocs, that is what reverse mounting means, even though it sounds like a bit of a misnomer.

BTW Michelin doesn't make the PSS in 285's so you gotta look into different brands.

Good luck trying to get Michelins on with those offsets! P Zeros, T1Rs would be better options. Good to see you're going to reverse mount the front. Not only does it match up the offsets better, but it would look funny to have one axle reverse-mounted and the other axle not.
