My Ride: 2003 BMW M3 Cabrio
Aggressive 19" offset for M3 Vert

Having gone through practically every thread on a M3 aggressive offset, I haven't been able to get the information needed.

Currently running stock CSLs rims

Front: 225/40R19x8.0 ET47 with 20mm spacers
Rear: 255/35R19x9.5 ET27 with 15 mm spacers

With spacers, the look isn't too bad but it can be a little more aggressive for the front (the wheel can stick out another 2-5mm) and rear (the wheel can stick out another 2-5mm).

Looking to order a set of custom WORK Gnosis CV202 Deep Concave and avoid having to run spacers while achieving an aggressive clean stance. Will also be installing a set of BC Coilovers. I'd like to achieve a lowered stance with the fender aligned with the top of the tire. Would like to avoid the slammed look.

From the threads I've read and comparing a number results from online wheel calculators, this was the recommendation as an upgrade:

Front: 245/35R19x9.0 ET35
Rear: 275/30R19x10.0 ET15

The plus sizing for the tires seem to be what most are running. The new offsets are based on calculations that are a little more aggressive than what I'm currently running on stock CSLs with spacers and which is the result that I'm looking for

I'm looking for experienced opinions if the upgraded offsets relative to the width of the rims would work or can it be optimized further. Is anyone running on these wheels specs? Any photos of either matching specs or being close to it would be great. Sometimes calculations on paper may look different from the actual result.

Thanks in advance to everyone's replies and look forward to your input.
