    Quick advice on Varrstoen ES5 19" Square setup. Will it work?

    Hi everyone

    I have been desperately after the Varrstoen ES5 / LM-R reps.

    I want to fit a square setup as I want to reduce under steer. My only issue is that the rims in 9.5" comes in one offset... And I am not sure if it will work on my E92 Pre LCI 335i

    Offset 20 for both front and rear... Is this possible? I DO NOT want any rubbing issues what so ever. I will run small stretch of the tyre if needed, but I hate the stretch and poke look and I prefer function.

    If you see this link below and scroll to the last page (wheels I want). You can see they only have 2 options which seem to be a very aggressive fitment?

    http://www.varrstoen.eu/varrstoen-pricelist-2012.pdf


    I do have a pre LCI, so I should have a little room to play with compared to LCI cars...?

    HUGE THANKS!

    Hello,
    Both front and rear 20 offset is a little aggressive, more so on the front than rear. You will definitely have to run stretch fit tires and do some fender mods.

    Please let us now if you have any more questions.

    Thank you

    Thank you for the help!

    I understand.
    I am sure it can easily be made to fit the rear... i already have my rears rolled.
    As the fenders on the e92 are plastic... what sort of fender mods can you do?
    And how stretched would the tyre need to be? I really do not want to run overly stretched and risk popping the bead as we do have pot holes here in London

    Many Thanks

    Hello again,

    Front tires: 215 or 225
    Rear tires: 245

    Front fender mods will require rolling and maybe pulled out a little. You will probably also need a camber kit of some sort for the front. You might need to do some slight negative camber. As for the plastics, you will have to remove or cut them for fitment.

    Thank you again.

    He has an e92 which have plastic fenders so he cannot do a roll or a pull with them. OP I run a 245/35 on my 10" upfront with lower offsets then those and although I run a e90 only needed 1.3 camber to really make it work. You would be fine and sounds like you won't be going to low either which in that case wnt need to much at all

    I decided to get some genuine 3 piece SSR rims in the end. Forget the reps.
