e90 LCI VB3 Wheel & Tire Size Help

So I have decided I want the 19inch VMR VB3 CSL Hyper black, but can someone tell me what will be the best setup with the H&R touring kit without rubbing or fender roll?

+1 to what he said, closest i can think would be 19x8.5 maybe 9 if they have it in that size it also depends on the offset. in the front and 19x10 in the rear for the vb3.

The setup that is recommended is the 19x8.5 ET40 with a 235/35/19 up front and the 19x9.5 ET45 with a 265/30/19 in the rear for the E90 LCI. This will not require you to roll your fenders or cause any rubbing issues even if the car is lowered.

^Front is fine, rear will be close on an e90 LCI.

Rears are a little close because of the 8mm wider track on the lci. If it rubs you can just add some negative camber. You should consider 9.5 et33 square. You'll still need to use a 235 up front to clear the strut.

Don't know if it makes that big off a difference, but I am running the same offset with 275/30/19 and it rubs like crazy. I definatley need a roll.

I did some searching last night and found one person who is running this setup without rubbing:

Front: 19x8.5 et35 with 235/35/19 with 5mm spacer
Rear: 19x9.5 et45 with 265/30/19 with 12mm spacer
Tires: Conti DWs

Is there a difference between 19x9.5 et33 and 19x9.5 et45 with 12mm spacer?

In the end they both come down to the ET33. It's better to go with the ET45 as that will give you the option to run spacers if you'd like to push it out further. Going straight with the ET33 will give you an aggressive fitment and you cannot do anything to make them less aggressive.

Sorry, I couldn't find pictures of this setup for some reason. It'll work, you'll need a fender roll though. You'll probably rub on big bumps depending on your suspension.

Here I found a thread who is running 19x10 et38 in the rear without rubbing. Which means it should work for me too because I don't think this person roll his fenders too, correct?

Nice find! I think he might have his fenders rolled based on the photo below. The 19x10 +38 is a good solid fit on the pre-lci E90. Since the LCI changed their rear wheel base, it'll be a bit aggressive for most people. However, base on the photos it doesn't look like he rubs at all. All things considered, I'm sure you won't rub if you roll your fenders a bit.
