19*11 what offset?

does anyone know which offset to use?

I am thinking of doing this offset and don't know if it will come out flush.

F: 19*9 ET 25
R: 19*11 ET 35

19x11 with et25 (eg. LM) doesn't really look all that flush or maybe just barely flush. With et35 you might still need spacers. This just based off of the LM 19x11 et25.

Rear:
19x11 ET35 is going to rub on your shock dust cover... I am pretty sure about that.

I had 19x10 ET20 and it sat pretty flush in the rear. Use the calculator here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12

Front:
In the front I would recommend 19x9.5 ET20-25.

Thanks for all the advise,

but it seems like the LM-R needs a a lower ET to get it flush.

I mean How does a LM-R not be lush with a 19*11J ET 25? in my find that will rub on the outside right?

shouldn't all rims be the same with it comes when it comes to ET vs width.

now I'm really confused

I don't think BBS made a 19x11 LM-R wheel ....

All i know is 9" + 17 is perfect in the front, 10" +20 is perfect in the rear. Adjust accordingly

Technically speaking the width (i.e. 9.5" on stock rear) does not include the bead seats of the wheel. So the actual width of a wheel is slightly larger than what is listed as the size.

The bead seats could perhaps differ in width from wheel to wheel?

Anyhow whether a set of wheels/tires would rub or not depends on the wheels (width, offset), tires (sidewall, width), and suspension (camber, toe, ride height)... so a set that works for one person may not work for another...

Here's what I know to be the limit... you can back calculate the rear for 11" width.

19x9.5 ET20-25
19x10.5 ET22-28

GL!

There are a few variables that come into play here, like tire size, brand of tire, camber, and how much work you are willing to do to make it work. I usually run a 19x10 +5mm (BBS RGR +20 with a 15mm spacer) in the rear and it's really flush, it barely rubs, it only rubs the plastic liner, no big deal. That's with Eibachs and -1.9 camber in the rear. Right now I'm running a 19x11 LM that is +25mm rear but added a 5mm spacer to bring it out more. It can go another 5mm easily, maybe even 10 more mm out. This is with 275/35's and the same camber setting I mentioned earlier.

But to answer you're question, 19x11 +35mm will not be flush. You will need a 15mm or 18mm spacer to make it look flush. But if you run a wide tire, like a 285 and up, then you can't use such a big spacer. If you use a 275/35/19 in the rear on that 11, it should be okay.

Cool. It'll probably look fine as is without any spacers but you can use 5mm all around for a bit more flushness.
