Thinking about going aggressive

I am finally getting to the point where I am wanting to get some more aggressive wheels. I currently have avant garde m310
19x8.5 et35 front 235/35/19
19x9.5 et33 rear 265/30/19

I am debating between these two setups

1. Keep the same rims and move the 9.5 et33 up front and get 19x11 et33 for the rear

2. Get new entirely new rims I was thinking of getting linea corse 818 in 19x9.5 et25 19x11 et25

With h&r sport springs (possibly even race) I\'m just concerned about rubbing with passengers in the rear. I dont want much more than -1 degree of camber.

Why do you not want more than -1* camber? As long as your toe is in spec, it won't cause much uneven wear.

Well I just don't really like the way a lot of negative camber looks and the tire wearing on the inside. I'd be willing to go up to -1.5

I think you're going to have to roll your fenders with those wheels.

Camber isn't even noticeable to the eye at -2* and I just said, if your toe is in spec, you will not have uneven tire wear.

You didn't ask a question. List the specs you want, and then I can tell you what it will take to make them fit.

I did list the specs

I'm either going to move my rear wheels up front and get new rear wheels so I'll end up with
19x9.5 et33 235/35/19
19x11 et33 265/30/19

Or linea corse 818
19x9.5 et25 235/35/19
19x11 et25 265/30/19

Either will work on an E90 pre-LCI. The 11" et25 will just need -2* and a roll, and you may want 225 on 9.5" et25 depending on camber.

I have 18x9.5" et19 225/40 and 18x11" et32 265/35 on LCI (8mm less room in the rear).
