Help with wheel offset

I am hoping somebody will help...I purchased wheels for my 335is, 18"x8.5 with an offset of 40. But instead they shipped ones with offset of 35. Should I return them? Anybody has an offset of 35? I know bmw recommends offset of 40. Thanks!

ET 35 is fine, i've run ET30 without issues.

It's a VMR VB3 wheel, 18x8.5 ET 35...I am just worried if its good as a winter package and fits without spacers and most important does not rub or hit the fender. Thanks

if you are determined to use an 18 for winter, it will fit fine. 17s would be best to avoid road hazard damage....

an ET40 will look a little recessed compared to stock.

The 18x8.5 ET35 will work on your E92 335is without any issues. It's actually the preferred offset for these cars. Th ET40 is actually slightly conservative!
