Question BBS LM reps on E90 M3 - HELP NEEDED PLEASE!

Hi guys

Looking at some 19" BBS LM reps for my AW E90 M3

I know the stock BMW rims are (F) 19x8.5 ET29 & (R) 19x9.5 ET23

The rims I have been looking at are (F) 19x8.5 ET40 & (R) 19x9.5 ET25

Does this means the wheels will fill the arches more or less? If anything, I want a more aggressive look, with the wheels filling the arches a little more. I have used the wheel configurator app & it looks to me as though these offsets will be less agressive than the current stock rims?

Can anyone help as they are the last set they have at this price and I want to sort today (if they are any good and will fit!!)

Cheers!!

The front wheels will be tucked into the wheel arches even more than stock (going the wrong way) You want a lower numerical numbered offset than stock...not a higher one. (+40)

Low offset number = more aggressive = wheel that is pushed out to the outer fender more.

High offset number = less aggressive = wheel that is tucked in more to inside suspension strut/shock.
