OEM style 220's on an e90 LCI?

So after doing some research, I could not come up with a definitive answer if the 8.5/et 29f and 9.5/ et 23r. I know the tires will need some stretching but how much? Will there be extreme poke on the rim? I have heard they make a square setup and what are the dimensions on those. Would they fit too? Is rolling the fenders a good idea and does it cause any problems? Sorry for all of these questions, but im a noob when it comes to wheel fitment.

I am running them on my 11 e93 LCI with just rolled fender but 235/35 up front and 265/30 rear. The e90 has more room so with this tire combo and rolled fenders you should be fine.

Probably a stupid question, but does fender rolling have any negative impacts? Can you tell the fender has been rolled from looking at the exterior of the car?

You cannot tell a fender has been rolled unless you are specifically looking for it and even then you might need a comparison to a stock car.

You will need to roll the fenders with that rear wheel fitment to ensure that you will not rub on bumps, especially with some passengers in the rear.

FWIW, 19" 220M wheels will look a bit goofy on a stock, non-sport suspension.

So I would either have to go with either the performance suspension or sport suspension. Performance is 1300 from tischer, but what would I expect to pay for the sports suspension from the dealership? Looking to stay OEM because of CPO. Will I have issues with the lower performance suspension?

Check out the classified section. People are selling low-mileage sport suspensions for next to nothing because they have upgraded to fancy aftermarket coilovers. People literally move these for a few hundred bucks. Just make sure you grab one from an LCi sedan.

Mine is on stock non-sport suspension. I can barely fit 2 fingers in on my rears. Front is a bit higher. I am probably going to go with eibach pro kit.

Does the e92 have more room like the pre-lci e90's do?

So I would get 235/35 on the front and 265/30 on the rear with a fender roll but I would not have to do any camber unless I was on coil-overs right? I hate the look of negative camber.

Yes

E92 ≈ E90 LCI
E90 pre-LCI = 8mm more room per side

You won't be able to tell if your fenders have been rolled (if they do a good job)

You should be fine with a 235/35/19, 265/30/19 with a fender roll.

Huh, and here I thought the stock staggered M3 wheels wouldn't work on a non M. Good to know! Car looks good even at stock height!

I thought they wouldn't as well. If you read this forum you'd get that impression. I found a set locally and threw them on.

It only rubs in the back when I am cornering hard.

That's awesome. There's a set I'm looking at but was just concerned about the rear fitment with that ET 23.

Doesn't look like it from your pics but does the rear poke out at all or is it pretty flush with the fender?
