Question Acceptable amount wheel poke

I've been looking at various aftermarket wheel combos and have been tooling around with the various offset wheel calculators online.

These calculators typically indicate the strut clearance and how far out (or in) the new wheels will poke.

For the 135i, what is an acceptable amount of poke in the front and rear? 10mm, 20mm, 30mm?

EDIT -Oh yeah, props to Mark Sink for the calculator! Whoever he is.

The 18x8 et40 O.Z Ultraleggeras I just ordered will have the fronts 15mm more toward the fender lip than the 264s. Gill guarantees me nothing will rub! I'm using the OEM runflats. The rears will be outward 6mm if memory serves.

I dont think those will work. Try the tire calculator that I found, it will give you a heck of a lot more detail.

This is what I am using. I think the lowest offset you would be able to use is a 38mm, and that is with 8" in the front and 9" in the back :/, at least that is what I will be using

I cant wait to see the Ultraleggeras on your car! I think the black on red combo will be awesome.
