Just put these wheels on my E90. Fitment is great as I am not going to lower. Offset is ET20 and the wheels are 18x8 all around. I got 225/40/18 Kuhmos mounted and the car drives like new again.

I would like to get the rear to look a little more aggressive maybe with spacers. Any recommendations ?

Be careful as the silver e91 with rear spacers is pre lci.

Yr e90x is an lci with a wider rear track already.

Hey, have you had any issues with rubbing? I just got a set of these wheels with winter tires and the front rubs ever so slightly when I hit a bump. The tires are 235/40 R18 so maybe its the extra width/height compared to yours that is making the difference? Mine also has the sport package which I believe lowers the car slightly...
