We did a test fitment of the aggressive offset wheels and tires on a pre-LCI E9X non-m.
This is not a functional or recommended fitment as the rear fenders were resting on the tires. It was done to see the design only
The rear tire in these photos is a 265 extreme summer tire on a 9.5" ET22 wheel. For a 100% rub free setup with extreme summer or r-compound tires this car would need 9.5" ET43 wheels. For rub free with extreme summer tires the car could use 9.5" ET35 wheels IF the rear fenders are rolled. The ET22 wheels could only be used with 255 tires and a decent rear roll.
The front wheel in this photo is 235/40/18 on an 18x9" ET31 plus a spacer that was seized to the hub. With a 235 tire and no spacer this size would fit fine up front on LCI or pre-LCI models.
