Default what offset should I get?

Hello everyone, I am very new to BMWs as i just bought my first one and what im looking forward to doing is going with an Air rex air ride system with some rims. Unfortunately I do not know what offset I will be going with but I do have an idea on the size. I will be going 19/8.5 and 19/10 staggered set. Any idea on what offset I should be going? i am going for a flush look

TIA!

Welcome to the forum First of all, can you tell us what you bought? Model? Year? Do you know what rims are on the car now and if they're BMW OEM? That will tell us a lot!

Enter the VIN number of your car into this link, and it will tell you the factory trim.

Free Online BMW VIN Decoder, lookup, check - BMWVin.com

Go to this site and identify which wheels you have:

All BMW wheel styles 5 | BmwStyleWheels.com

Then select the wheel and it will tell you the offsets.

I'm assuming the rim dealer will also know which offset to sell you. Good luck!
