ive pretty much decided to go for 19in rims on my e36 cab, just wondering what offset i should be looking for? the wheels are 19x8.5 all round. i realise i should go for the same size offset as the rear alloys already fitted as im only goin up in size not width, im just a bit stumped on the fronts, originals are 17x7.5 front, 17x8.5 rear. my car is an m3 evo convertible if this helps at all???? :confused

et between 35 and 46...keeping it inboard (higher number) might be your best bet
Are they the same width wheel all around?

I would stay in the high 40's to be honest, using a 235'35 19 all around:thumbsup

To be honest with you, leave all the technical bit's to the wheel supplier. That way if they get it wrong then it's there fault and they'll have to sort it out:thumbsup
