another wheel fitment question

What are the odds of getting some 19 x 10 et 19 rears and 19 x 9.5 et21 wheels to fit an lci e90?

Cheers, Andy

Thats pretty agressive for an E90. I've stuck the rears in the calculator here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12

8.5 x 18 ET34 255/35/18 rears vs 10 x 19 ET19 265/30/19 rears (I think standard rears are 34, maybe 37). The clearance is 4mm less on the strut side (no problem) but they'll stick out an extra 34mm over standard, that's quite a lot.

Pop the question on the American side of the forum, there'll be someone on there running 10" rears I'm sure

EDIT: this may help: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=797793

Cheers mate I am running 19 x 9.5 et35's on the rear with 265/35/19's and tbh there doesn't appear to a great deal more room.

You wouldn't get a bookie to give any odds whatsoever,even if the car was a 4x4 and the tyres didn't rub, the wheels/tyres would sit so far out of the arches it would not be a legal mod.

Should fit ok.

I am running the style 95's which i think are 9.5x19 and 10x19 et24, 225/35/19 and 265/30/19 and i am considering a spacer on the rears, arches are rolled and im not that low.

*Mine is a pre lci - read somewhere that makes a difference, not so sure myself though i really dont see how as the body shape remained the same.

The track was widened on LCI models. One easy way to tell a non-LCI model is how the rear wheels are set sunk into the arches more than the LCI model.

There we go. So scrap my advise, and wait for someone with an lci to pipe up!!
