E90 Pre-LCI - 19x9.5 et22 rubbing issues?

Hey guys, Im about to purchase new wheels for my 330xi 2006 (sports package) and was wondering if a setup 19x8.5 et35 (235/35/19) front and 19x9.5 et22 (275/30/19) would rub?

I saw various answers while searching the forums and couldnt come up with a definite answer so far.. I know they usually recommend et35 for both wheels but I want a more agressive look while Im still at stock height (sports pkg)

Thanks!

I think you will be fine on stock suspension. If you lower, just need to roll fenders.

Rear wheel and tire specs are more aggressive than what we'd recommend. If you're open to rolling your fenders I would advise doing so.

Take my advice for this. I ran 9.5" et 25 in the back and it rubbed when going over the bump. I didn't have sport package. I could avoid the rub with the offset if I use stretch tires, not 275/30/19. The best for 9.5", 19" rim in rear is et 30 with 275/30/19 while 8.5", 19" rim in front is et 35 with 235/35/19 for both the look and performance. You don't want to see the rear wheel being too aggressive while the front offset is quite conservative.

Thats the kind of advice I like. Thanks for it. I will stay conservative and go for both ET35. Otherwise I could always add small spacers for the rear if Im not satisfied.
