Offsets for running 17x8F and 17x9R rims
Hey everyone, new here. Picked up an 02 330CI m package. I have been searching for offset numbers to run 17x8F and 17x9R wheels flush with minimal/natural camber, car does have a coilover kit. So far my search has brought me kind of close with the style 32 staggered wheel specs (17x8 and 17x9) which are 20 offset front and 26 offset rear, but with the car lowered it still requires a fender roll as well as added camber, im thinking if i run 20 front and 30 rear i should be close to where i want to sit. If anyone could throw some suggestions my way it would be greatly appreciated.

17x8 +20 205/45
17x9 +30 215/45

Should sit dead flush with natural camber and not rub (rolled rear fenders). You know where to go if you're looking for this type of stuff. :)

Yeah im going to run the ichiba 5x120 to 5x114 15mm adapter for rear, and getting a custom 24mm for the front (have to search up the guy on ebay that made spacers for my wrx), all 4 rims are +44 by the way. But the tires that are currently on the rims are all 215/45/17, the extra width shouldnt be too bad in the front, im sure i can get away with it. For rolling I know Daniel Bahn does a good job, not sure if he is still in the business though.

With the 15mm ichiba spacer in the rear it looks like it could use another 5mm, with the 215/45 it fits just fine without a roll. I think i missunderstood your post earlier, you roll fenders? If so pm your info lol.

If it's not rubbing you're not low enough :P

I'm kidding, but that's great that it worked out. Click my signature for contact info.
