Arrow Need help with offsets...

Can anyone suggest what offsets I need for 19x8.5 fronts and 19x9.5 rears on 323i sedan lowered on coilovers that will sit on tire with no gap and stick out as far as possible with minimal rubbing. 18's not an option, looking for a nice flush look, any help would be greatly appreciated and any pics will really be appreciated and helpful, thanks E46 members, E46's rule!!!...

are your fenders rolled/cut? if not then i would suggest doing so in order to get the flush look you're going for. also are you planning on running camber?

i'm guessing you're doing 215/35 front and 225/35 rear. i would say et30 front and et35 rear will get you pretty close.

I typically recommend for 19" staggered, a 35 offset front and a 45 offset rear. I can typically guarantee no rubbing with this fitment on stock suspension, but for the most part, this gives you a pretty flush solid fitment.

Best,

Freddie
