Any suggestions on offsets for Front 19x9 Back 19x10

Having a set made and they asked me what offsets I want

I'm on Stock suspension considering BMWPS

My fronts have a bit of camber due to the Front Control Arm kit and my fenders are rolled.

So would something along the lines as +40 front and +45 work?

It's going to come down to tires with that set up. 225 may be the best you can do up front at +40. I think 245 may be the best you can do in the rear with as much negative camber as you can fit. 255 maybe but without an aggressive roll you would probably rub. 10" is pretty wide.

Thanks for the input. 9" & 10" Seems a bit tough to work with. The wheel won't stick out at these numbers will they or would it be safer to go 42 and 47? I want them to sit pretty close to the fender without actually sticking out

Oh and the wheel brand is VIP Modular if it matters

I think you went a little wide on your wheel width selection and that 8.5/9.5 would have worked much better. You could fit really wide tires with those widths and the correct offsets.

I think the 9" front is going to be a bigger problem than the 10" rear. From what ive seen, the inboard clearance is what kills the ability to fit wider fronts on.

If any offset is an option then the front is definitely gonna still be the sticking point. I'd order et40front, et 54 rear.

Well, with a 9" front you cant go too much higher in the offsets or you will risk hitting the struts. 8.5" 42et on the other hand would be much better and allow you to run at least a 235 width tire.

I don't think the rear width is too much of a problem, but if you wanted deep lips then say goodbye to that. You'd probably be looking at ~50 in the rears as far as offsets go. Yes they will fit, yes they will rub without a fender roll or camber plates. Maybe get 18's instead of 19's?

And I agree with what people are saying about the fronts, 9" seems way too wide on a 19" wheel to be running up front.

This is what I run with a roll and pull, -3* camber up front, -2* camber in back

18x9 et35 225/35

18x10 et50 255/35

Very functional setup. Able to run the car as fast and hard as I want. Good for track.

Thanks for the suggestions I'm going to talk to VIP tomorrow to see if it is possible to go with the 8.5 and 9.5. If not I'll find some way to make it work

I assume it should be no problem, since you haven't given them the offset yet, they couldn't have started production yet.
