Would spacers be required

Even though I love my 326s, I'm considering switching wheels. Stock offset for the 35is is stated as 29 front 40 rear.

I'm looking at wheels that are 32mm offset front and rear.

Question, will I need spacers?

Wheels are 19x8.5 up front and 19x9.5 out back. (VS 19x8 and 19x9 for the stock 326s).

Thoughts? (and thanks)

I think you good to go with a 32mm offset, no spacers required. Rears will move out by 8mm and fronts will move in by 3mm.

The rears might rub just a bit on the plastic liner on extreme conditions depending on tire.

You won't ''need'' spacers front but adding 10mm each side will look and handle better.

They are quite near my wheels, which are

8,5x19 ET34 with 235/35R19
9,5x19 ET34 with 265/30R19

Haven't heard or seen any rubbing so far.



I would say no to spacers.
