Will these BBS CH 19's fit

THE FRONT RIMS are 19X8.5" offset +35
THE REAR RIMS are 19X9.5" offset +40

will these fit flush on a E92 M3 or will spacers be required?

Please don't do it... These are not M3 size wheels. You'll need to run a 20-25mm front and 25mm rear spacers. Plus the beauty of the CH's are the concave look and these wheels won't have that.

Thanks. Still love your rig....

How about these CH OFFSETS;

Rims are staggered 19x8.5 5x120 et35 in the front 19x10 5x120 et20 in the rear

With Nitto nt555 tires 235/35/19 front 265/30/19 in the rear! 95% tread left!

With the front you would want to run a 20mm spacer. Boostedtwin knows, this is the same setup he ran. In my opinion, it is not the best setup.

It'll not flush but that's one of the option Tirerack sells.
The best combo is 19x8.5 +20 F, 19x10 +20 R for E9X M3 (but tirerack doesn't carry that combo).

Tirerack carries 19x8.5 +35 F, 19x9.5 +40 R (and) 19x10 +20 R only.

I had CH on my E46M3 (you can check out wheel pictures from my sig) so I can tell you this:
CH is all about the aggressive offset and +20 or +22 are "only" offsets that makes true "CH" look.

If you look at CHs in Audi, they never look right (always look very flat) and that's because their offset is like +35 or +40.

For the M3 it comes down to 2 options:

One listed above, 19x8.5 +20, 19x10+20
The other (I had this setup before)
19x9.5 +40 (Used 20mm spacer), 19x10 +20 (Used 5mm spacer)

The reason I went with the last setup is that I wanted a concave front wheel, the 9.5 will be more concave than the 8.5 even with higher offset.

There's a set but in black on the classifieds right now for very cheap.

Here's a quick pic of my old setup:

And you should know that tire-rack sells all of the offsets listed above. They just don't list them as M3 fitment. Search under 2003 M5 and you will find the 19 x 8.5, 20mm offset fronts. 19 x 9.5 can be found when searching under 335i. Tire rack is a little conservative on their available wheel offsets listed for cars.

So in a nutshell what is the ideal offset for these wheels on a E92 M3 Coupe?

Rear: no doubt 19x10 +20.
Front: I prefer 19x8.5 +20 (I personally don't like using spacers although they make car looks damn good) but you have an option for 19x9.5 +40 with spacer.

I checked the CH black FS thread and spoke to the owner. Rear tires need to replaced very soon. FYI.
