The definition of aggressive (in regards to wheel offsets) is in the eye of the beholder...

It all depends on the wheel size, widths, and tires you eventually choose.

The OEM style 220M 19's for example, come in very 'conservative' offsets and widths of:

8.5" front, offset +29

9.5" rear, offset +23

You really need to focus on what wheel design you want FIRST.

Then figure out what size wheel (diameter) you want. (18"? 19"? or 20"?)

Then figure out how wide you want the wheel (width) to be.

Then figure out what tire size/brand you want to put on your wheels.

Now after you do all that...THEN you should turn you attention to the offset value of the wheels. (what you want vs. what is available)

Feel free to PM me anytime. I have helped hundreds of BMW enthusiasts like yourself (both local and across the country) over the past 15 years with tire and wheel fitment recommendations. (brands, sizing, build construction, possible pitfalls and or clearance issues, etc.)

What kind of budget do you have set aside for this proposed aftermarket wheel/tire combo?

I disagee with above post. Offset is first for two resaons. First it must fit, and two looks. It can reach all your other points but it does not matter if the offset is not apporpriate.

Assuming stock tires

Front
Very Agressive offest is +ET10
Agressive +ET15

Rear
Very agressive offset is +ET08
Aggressive +ET12
