Forgestar F14 size + offset question

Im kinda a noob when it comes to picking out offsets on wheels. Ive been looking at the Forgestar F14 wheels and would like to run
19x10 front and 19x11 front. I can find threads of people running 19x9 +19x11...

I am currently on stock suspension with swift springs but plan on upgrading to a coilover at some point. Can anyone suggest a good offset for 19x10 Front and 19x11 rear?? Id rather get that flush look with no spacers.

Thanks and Merry Christmas M3 post members

Contact one of the forgestar vendors on this site. Forgestar will actually work with you to pick the right offset for your application and needs.

A safe bet would be a19x10 et25 front and 19x11et33 rear. This has been done quite a few times already.

I run Forgestar CF5V's 19x9.5 et22 275/30/19, 19x11 et31 305/30/19.

I'm lowered on the KW Sleeve over kit, front is quite flush, only rubs rear guard liner on full lock turns. Rear I have no rubbing issues at all

Exactly the info I was looking for. Do you have a pic of them on your car? No spacers right?

No spacers. http://www.forgestar.com/blog/?p=1942 I regularly had passengers in the back with cargo and no rubbing. You'll need to back off on the tire if you go with anything other than a V12. Their shoulders are fairly round.

Looks great once I get back from vacation I'll have to get with one of the vendors. Since I have an E90 that may change the offsets a lil. I did plan on running PSS 275/305 if I can.

If you go with a 305 rear tire and run a 19x11 ET 29 you have to run a tire with a rounded shouder like the Hankooks or you could rub. The ET33 will be a safer bet and will allow more tire choices. If you run a 295 outback should be no issue at all.

Never heard of Forgestars cracking and if they did what made them crack? Malek runs them on his M3 with no issues. There was a time wben even HRE wheels were banned at certain tracks.
