My Ride: 03 M3 Hardtop/Vert
Need your opinion

I have a M3 vert and looking to add some new rims to my car. Im interested in purchasing a set of VMR v718 with a drop. My wheel specs i chose are R-19x9.5 F-19x8.5, since thats the biggest size these wheels are made, would have loved 19x10 in the back and 19x9.5 fronts any how, im really confused about the offsets. I tried to research it but, im still confused. This is where u guys come in. Basically i want my tires to sit flush at the fender with my fenders rolled of course with a clean drop. what would be the max offset that the wheel stick out without any rub?

You need to provide the offsets. The offsets will determine how far inboard/outboard the face of the wheel will sit relative to the fender. Honestly, there's no one perfect combination. You should search intensively and you'll find the information you require.

If you already have the wheels on the car and are looking for spacers, then you need to measure the gap between the wheel and the fender and that will tell you what spacers to get (assuming you live some room left over too).

That's a difficult question to answer cause:
- Rolling fenders isn't an exact science, you could roll them mildly, or you could even push them out.
- You could as some people do here, run wide wheels with stretched tires. It gives you that "flush" look, yet only if you ignore the tires are stretched to hell.
- What's a "clean drop"?

Contact a vendor, you're probably going to have to pay extra for custom offsets, which then you may rethink your choice.
