zhp offset question

So, I'm planning on buying some apex arc-8 18x9.5 for my zhp coupe although I can't decide on the offset 22 or 35. My objective is stance so I'm not sure which would be a better decision, I want a relatively flush look and not too many fitment issues. I'm cool with rolling the rear fenders and I plan on running 225/40 all around but I'm not totally sure, I'd like a wider tire in the rear. What do you guys think?

An offset of ET22 is going to stick out past the fenders quite a bit and require body work. Check the specs of your Style 135's and compare.

You will not require body work, unless you count rolling your fenders as body work.

I fit a 18x9.5 et25 front/back on my E46, with a 225/40 tire. My fenders were rolled and I ran about -3 degress of camber. I never rubbed.

What suspension setup are you going to run? ET35 will fit with stock camber adjustment if you don't have camber plates. ET22 will require additional camber you won't be able to get with stock adjustment. ET35, though, will probably need a smaller spacer up front to clear your strut.

My friends giving me his fk streetlines and i intend to just max those out. He's telling me to get et22 as its what he has but it might be too aggressive for me. Will et35 still give me that nice flush look? And what rear tires do you think i could run because i been thinking 255/35

FK Streetlines.... do they have adjustable camber plates on the front struts? If not, you are going to need to get some. ET22 will poke up front if you can't adjust the camber.

255/35-18 is going to be way too aggressive with a 18x9.5 et22 tire. You will rub, guaranteed.

Im probably going with et35 to avoid some of the hassle just want to know if the fitment would be nice and flush or if I would go with 9" instead of 9.5'
