Volk TE37 E46 M3 fitment

Could someone tell me what is the correct fitment for Volk TE37's for the E46 M3? I know generally they come 19x8.5 and 19x10.5 but what is the correct offset for the front and rear wheels?

The "standard" E46 M3 offsets that Volk Racing offers are +35 in the front and +25 in the rear. However, they've been known to make different offsets for the E46 M3 in some special cases.

Thanks, that is pretty much what I gathered from most of the for sale ads. I'm curious is the standard 19 inch wheel always 10.5 rear width? That seems too big IMO. In the case of the wheels that you are selling how well do they fit? I like them and also the TE37's but man they are wide in the rear!

I know of some Volk CE28N and TE37's with 19x9.5 rears. I do believe the 10.5 rears are more desirable to most consumers, especially those that like that "flush" with the fenders look. The extra inch in the rear also gives the face a more concave look. It's a look that I personally like, and the 275/30/19 tires I use give it a little stretched look. I know some people that use 285/30/19 tires, but some may rub. I guess it's up to your personal preference on looks and performance.
