19" Wheel offset

Hey guys,

Im in the process of getting some BBS LM19" wheels for my 01S,

They will be custom drilled to suit my needs, what is the best offset to run?

i want them to sit relatively flush with the guards but without the need to modify the guards etc

front wheels 19x8.5 rears are 19x9.5

Without knowing what size tires you'll be using, and if the vehicle is going to be lowered,
I would recommend:

19 x 9.5 +35 (+ or - 2)
19 x 8.5 +40 (+ or - 2)

I would recommend 235's up front and 275's in the rear with the offsets I've provided.
