i just bought the stoptech 355 BBK, and i have a 19x8.5 wheel, and the offset is +35, i just want to ask you guys that is it gonna fit the rotor and caliper?

and what minimum offset do you need for 355mm BBK?

thx in advance.

there is more to it than offset. the shape of the spokes has to be just right to clear the caliper. You can print off a template from the Stoptech website to fit into your wheel to see if there is enough clearance. Here is the link to the 355mm Stoptech template. Make sure you print it out at 100% (http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/charts/98-130-2470-01.pdf)

i did that last night and it touch the spoke. just a little bit, my spoke was at 36.0 and the cardboard i cutted was 45.10.
i will take a picture now.
dono if i need to buy new wheels or add spacers will do the trick.

if it touched the spoke you are most are probably going to need a spacer or new wheels. Did you try to fit the 332mm kit? It might fit better. or do you need the added heat disappation of the 355mm kit?

It's not only the offset that you have to consider. It's also the design of the wheel.

i haven't try the 332kit, but i already bought the 355 kit.

whats the max i can go for spacer for the front on quattro, and also do i have to add spacer to the rear?

That depends on the tire size you'll be running.
