Please help with wheels again

I read all these posts and I know it can get frustrating with people asking for help so at the risk of being that guy I am going to ask. I am looking at a new set of wheels for my car and these are the specs for all 4 wheels. I am wondering if they will fit on a 2004 z4.

Wheel Size: 19" x 8.5"
Offset: +35
Lug/Bolt Pattern: 5x120
Center Bore: 72.6

Again I apologize but I have tried to make sense of offset and how going positive or negative affects how they fit or sit but I just canít and there are people who are much better then I could ever understand with this stuff. Thank you for the help in advance with this.

From everything I am seeing the 35et will look less ďtuckedĒ but because they are 8.5 they should work without rubbing. I have no problem if they poke out a bit further as my style 106ís are pretty well tucked in there but just wanted to make sure that I am not completely off on this

Those are good links and just tell me they will poke out farther. Again I donít have a good understanding of what that all means to begin with and people here have tried or have experience with that I was looking for a yeah they will fit, not without spacers, or no way.

IMO,
Fronts will require a lot of camber to tuck enough to not look like a roller skate
Rears fit nicely with 2 degrees of camber

A lot depends on your tire choice as well.
Hopefully other guys will chime in.

May I save you a lot of time? I've done the trial and error test fitting of many tire and wheel sizes. I'm not the sole authority on this, but its what I'm using and don't see anyone else here giving true first hand experience.
If I were you, I would go down to 17's, not up to 19's.
I already changed the front of my E86 MCoupe to 17x9.5 offset 34. Rear is 18x9.5 offset 22. Tires are 275/40x17 front, 275/40x18 rear. Continental Extreme Contact Sport.
This is as beefy as can be fit without wheel well rolling.
You will save money on wheels, tires, and help avoid damaged vertebrae by staying away from 19's. 17's soak up much more NVH than 18's at the same diameter. 275/40 vs 275/35.
IF you don't need that much beef to keep the car planted, then 245 or 255/45x17 on 17x9" wheels will do you very nicely. Go with the 17x9 Kosei or TSR like Tire Rack sells, or DForceLTW from **********s.
Your car has the same wheel wells as the M, so if it fits an M, it fits a non-M.
F camber -2.0. This is with the upper strut mount pins removed to allow the upper mount to be all the way inward on the stud slots.
R camber -1.7.
Do definitely replace your FCABs with the offset hole MZ4 FCABs.
While in there, swap in a set of M swaybars. Instantly noticeable how much flatter the car corners.
IF you look at the used wheel market, there are a tone of cheap very nice looking 19's <fs> because people can't stand how jouncy the ride is, and sicko sticker shock for the price of 19's vs 17 or 17 inch tires. Many M3&4 drivers on cars that came with 19's switch back to 18's.
hth, Barry

They will fit. Track will be wider than stock. However, I agree with the last poster that you will probably be happier with 17's from a ride and durability standpoint.
