    Hopefully someone can help out as i know a few of you run these wheels.

    BBS CH 19's
    the size that most seem to go with is the 8x19 ET 50.
    i want to know if it is possible to run the 8.5x19 with a 35 offset.
    i really prefer the 35 offset as it has a deeper dish look to it.

    20mm lower as well.

    any help most greatful.

    thanks

    I will fit, but you will have to run 215/35s and you won't be able to slam it either. Only if you run negative camber you will avoid rubbing and you can slam it. Here is Lomax's Mk5 GTi running ET35 all round on 19"x8.5s:
