Most aggressive ET for M3 E92 ?

What is the most aggressive ET with 8,5x19 and 9,5x19 or 10,0x19 for a M3 e92 without rubbing issues? Thank you for all the answers.

Usually there is a 1/2" to play with before rub problems. The stock ET is F/29, R/23. You could do an ET offset of approx F/15, R/10 and be ok assuming OEM tires/rim specs.

a 08 ET will be pushing it. That's 21mm the front wheel will be pushed out toward the fender, probably too aggressive. 19 ET should be no problem.

Because the car just arrived on the US shores and no one has any idea of the exact offset aftermarket wheels will be needed for fitment on this car, I'd be patient and wait to see exactly what will fit. You say you want the most aggressive fitment without rubbing which is fine, but you need to bear in mind the brand of tire that you will be using will probably come into play as well. Each and every single tire manufacturer have different size sidewalls even though the size specs are the same. This will affect how "aggressive" you can go as well.

if you have rubbing probelems, can they be fixed with a simple set of spacers? What are the downsides/concerns when using spacers?

spacers if you are rubbing? does that make the wheels stick out more and cause more rubbing? you probably need to shave the offset a little, not spacers

He's right, spacers push the wheels out toward the fenders. You're going the wrong way if you're using spacers.

ET is offset. Tirerack.com has a good explaination on this.

Abbreviation for the German "Einpresstiefe", I believe.
