    coil overs are normally narrower so you might be okay, as for offset, cant really help as i went the other direction and got et25's to give the wide stance look

    What size tyres are you running if its 225/35/19 like me then you can run 25mm spacers to have them sitting almost exactly the same as my set up,

    my wheels are 19 x 8.5 but are ET40 so yours retract in 8mm further in than mine as standard, im running 18mm spacers up front and 19mm spacers on the rear so if you ran 25mm spacers all round yours would sit 2mm further in on the front and 1mm further in on the rear than mine and i have no rubbing at all.

    Im dropped on just springs and B5 front perches so around 40mm drop on the rear and 50mm on the front.

    fronts are 8.5 with. 235/35 19. Et 48
    rear 9.5 with 245/35/19

    Dont think il have issues with rubbing,just actual contact with coils,i think for safe measure il get some spacers as its better to have them and not need them,than need them and not have them!

    Nice stance you got there, suprising for springs :-)
