Wheel Offset (32mm or 38mm Front)

I've read numerous posts about rims & am still a bit confused on the perfect offset for flush rims.

For a 22" x 10.5 " rim, what's the best offset for the rear & front?

I'm assuming 35mm for the front with stock brakes is the best for being flush? Some have said 32mm??? What if I go with stoptech aftermarket rotors? Will 35mm still clear?

I'm also assuming 40mm is perfect for the rear & 38mm is near perfect, but sticks out slightly?

I am on RM mid drop springs as well. Any help will be appreciated. My rims have 40mm offsets & I'm trying to figure out what spacers I'll need.

I figured. Are they completely flush with the front fender? or do you think a few mm less is needed (some are saying 32mm, so pushed outward another 3mm)

They sit flush. The only way they may not look flush is if you have a bad alignment (too much negative camber). Then the tops of the tires will be slightly inside the fender. Clearance for the front calipers is spot on too.

Gotcha. I'm going to test fit with washers when my rims come in & get mounted. I've got the RM mid drop with the BWoody Stage 1 alignment package, so my alignment is spot on thanks to that. The info is much appreciated.

If you click on the picture in my sig it will give you a better angle of the 35 offset. Hope it helps bud.

Thanks. The pics don't do them justice. Once my tires come in, I'll post more of them mounted.

40mm all around. I'm test fitting to see what spacers will be needed, but I've been told 5mm for the front definitely.
