what offset will make my 325i look like this?

i am currently planning on doing alot of work to my 2003 325i, i want to lower it with tein s tech springs and also get new staggered wheels because one of my wheels is bent right now, currently i have 4 18x8 rims on it that are not staggered, and the tire size is 225 49 18 soooooo with that said, what offset in staggered rims for the front and rear will give my car this look with a 2.5 to 3 inch lip on rear and 1.5 to 2 inch lip on front, http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/2181/lmrpjc4.jpg i hope it worked if not its the first post by robke181 post#265 thanks for the help anyone _a_

Are you planning on going to 19's or 18's?? Cause these pictured seem to be LM Replicas... A few members prefer to run 19x9.5 front and back to get the LIP you are looking for... But if that's not the case you can't really give a specific offset to acheive a larger LIP.

I can get 19s if that's the most popular size ... But what offset range should I get... That's all I'm confused about lol

no thats a square setup. staggered setup is different widths for front and rear. unless you want to do some fender work you should stick to 19x8.5 et35 front 19x9.5 et 40/45 rear
