Offset Gurus, Will this work?

Hi Bros,

Am gonna sell my 335 and was wondering if i can bring my Neez QD7s over to the new M3.

My offsets are as follows:

19x8.5J - +35 Offset with 235/35 PS2 Tires
19x9.5J - +25 Offset with 265/30 PS2 Tires

I may be utilizing a hubcentric spacer of 8mm on the front making it +2 more than the original offset while the Rear, with no spacers appears to be 2mm less. Just worried if this might upset the balance of the cars handling?



This is the rims for the 335 I am intending to move it over to the M3 in AW. Hope there wont be much problems for me in doing so given the offsets and spacers i intend to use.

Thanks in advance guys!

Cheers~!

Use a 10mm or 12mm in front. They are typically stronger. The 23-25mm offset you end up with will not be a problem.

In the rear, I don't think you could even see a 2mm difference? It certainly won't make a difference in the handling.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Radiation Joe. I dont think the rear is a problem. I can get 8mm C&C hubcentric spacers here customed. Does going to 10mm on the front have any implication on rubbing or so forth? AFAIK, the front offset is 29. My rims are +35 offset so going to 10mm spacers would imply an extra 4mm on the front. Is this ok?

You won't have any problem with a 25mm offset in the front, especially with a 235 width tire. I do not recommend anything less than a 10mm spacer unless you use a special spacer like Turner sells

Read about Turner spacers
