Default yet another fitment question

Im sure people are sick of these but i dont fully understand offsets so before i purchase a new set of wheels i figured id ask. I found a good looking set of Varrstoen TE37 replicas that i really like at a good price.

So my queston is, i want them to sit pretty close to flush which offset do i choose???? my options are FRONT: 19x9.5 in +0 +12 +22 REARS 19x10.5 in +0 +12 +22. Which one do i choose? Also if it makes a difference i have the sport breaks and i plan on lowering the car sligtly (no more than inch). So which offset do i choose??? I can not have any tire rub either! thanks for the help!

i thought i read somewhere they dont clear the calipers (front) at +22...which means you will run +17. not a good fit unless you're going lower it quite a bit.

rear +12 will be plenty but juruki runs 0, i thinks on the rear.

with those offsets you'll need to lower your car considerably to make it look right.

Don't know anything about Varrstoen caliper fitment.

But 19x9.5 +22 is good for the front an 19x10.5 +12 for the rear.

19x9.5 +12 19x10.5 +12
clears factory sport brakes and fits nicely with a 305 in the rear.
considering what you're looking for the 0 offset will be too aggressive

Front +12 is a bit aggressive and may require a bit more negative camber to prevent rubbing.

Front +22 will sit inside a bit. Would need a 5mm spacer to look exactly flush

Rear +12 is a good flush fit with 305 tires, no problem.

If you check Ravspecs Work Gnosis GS4 Bronze lip thread (4 or 5 threads down in Wheels and Tires) you'll see that I got Front +11 (pretty close to +12) and I was rubbing all over the place with OEM spec alignment with 255 tires.

That will rub in front. With those choices, +22/+12 is the way to go.

u need a 5mm spacer in the front on the +22 to clear the sport brakes. If not sport then no problem.
