might pull the trigger on some 19x9.5 and 19x11 BBS LM and im not sure if they will clear my brakes.

has anyone ran LMs with the 380x32 8 piston brembo GT kit?

What offset is the 9.5"?
8.5" ET17 BBS LM clears the 380mm brembo without problems. If you're thinking of running et32 9.5" you might run into problems with the clearance since it runs 28mm more in.

The rule of thumb on BBK measurement for wheels is to add 4" to the rotor size to determine wheel clearance. Therefore a 380mm kit would likely need 19" wheels and 405mm would likely needs 20" wheels for the barrel clearance. But, race wheels often have better clearance and stock wheels typically have worse. Email me and I will send you the clearance chart for the E39 kits.
