DPE Fittment on E90 LCI

19x8 front
19x9 rear

Exact offsets are not provided by DPE. They said approximate offsets are 28-30 for the fronts, and 42-45 for the rears.

Will this setup fit my car?

thats a weak setup, if your buying DPE's - get them in the right size and offset.

19x8.5 - 9" front and 9.5 - 10" rear

at least a et35 on both, or lower for the rear.

I really don't want to roll my fenders in the rear. I go through at least a set or two of wheels a year which forces me to buy used. Will the fronts fit?

Front will fit, if your set on them at least run a 10mm spacer out back.

My car is LCI... I thought 38 was about as good as it gets in the rear.

I would be swapping over my tires and sensors, 235F and 275R.

FWIW, not the rims you are looking at, but on my e90 LCI I am running 19x8.5 up front et 35 on 235/35 series tire and 19x9.5 rear et 35 on a 265/30 series tire. Both the rear and front sit about as flush as you can go without needing to roll fenders.

Why go with a 10" wheel in the rear when you have to stretch a 255 tire to make it fit when you can go with a 9.5 rear and beefer 265 tire?

Here is the shot the sold me on my wheels/fitment. Lowered LCI running the same set-up I am running.

This is freakin perfect I agree... any idea what this car is lowered with? Or another way of asking, to achieve this level of drop as shown in the pic, would I have to do an H&R Sport, or Race spring... i'm not doing coils for now, so which of the two springs would get me closer to the drop shown in this pic?

thanks!
