Wheel Fitment Question ? Help!

Soo i got a set of rims Fronts 19x8.5 ET43, 19x9.5 Rears ET 21. The rears fit no problem. The Front offset is far to high the vehicles. The set that was on it was 16 x 8 ET 15. Assuming my math is correct i need to get the ET 43 As close or below ET 10. This would mean i need to run a 30mm or 35mm spacer. am i correct in my thinking? The vehicle is a 1991 BMW 850I

Best way to know is to measure yourself. Take off one front wheel but this new one where you want it and measure the distance between the rim and hub.

Since the new wheel is 0.5 inch (13 mm) wider, you have 6.5mm of offset to consider as well. With the 16 inch wheel, how much clearance from the inside of the rim to the strut?

I have an extra set of 20 mm spacers if you want to test fit.
