Et20 on an e90 sedan? (M5 wheels)

Looking at 3 different style m5 wheels for my car...

Looks like the oem m5 offset is +20 front and rear... Is this possible to fit on a pre lci sedan?

I'm on oem sport package and not really plan on lowering any more.

Want to run 19's with a 235/35 tire front and a 265/30 rear on 8.5 and 9.5 rims.

Fitment experts weigh !!

Yes 19x8.5 et20 and 19x9.5 et20 is possible with your tyre sizes. It will look very good.
Might need slight fender roll to rear, since it might occasionally rub. For the front 225/35/19 would be easiest to fit, but im pretty sure it will work with 235/35 since you aren't lowered and you can always roll the front too if it rubs. Also tyre brand can affect whether it rubs or not.

This is with 245 and 275 tyres

Same car with eibach lowering

This with 8.5 et15 and 9.5 et20 tyre sizes are narrower than what you want but just to give you examples.

This has 8.5 et20 and 235/35 at front

Oh, I'm not expert tho.

This is with those exact specs and tyre size

fitment

I would think they would fit fender roll would good enough! Not needed in the front but you could still do a mild roll!

This is helpful...

the silver e90 with the VMR's looks realllllly good.

I guess I should start looking into a local shop that does fender rolls... i have a feeling this is going to be incredibly hard to find where i live

perhaps i would have to go with the 225 front tire instead of the 235? I hear pre-lci sedans have "more room" in the rear so i am hoping that i can squeeze a +20 19x9.5 w/ 265/30 tire back there without doing too much fender work... problem is i also am running the Nexen tires and they do have meaty sidewalls which isnt going to help my case.

I will leave it on stock suspension. My major concern is the wheels sticking out the fender.

Well 225/35 would be easier fit (Especially if you lower it at some point) and wont require any fender mod.Its possible that 235/35 will work just fine at your case.

You will only need fender roll to make those Et20 rear fit. Also it probably only rubs on bigger dips at speed etc. You could get 255/30/19 it would match 225/35 front better and also if the tyre is "meaty" it will look wider than it is.
But i guess you have tyres already?

I have 18x9.5 et22 with 235/40/18 at my E90 pre-lci rear it fits without fender mods and doesn't rub at all. In fact, im going to add 10mm spacer so final et12, but this requires fender roll. I did test drive with spacers and it rubbed on bigger dips.

Try asking local forum members if somebody does fender roll. Or some local workshop.

Yes, I already have tires. What happened is I had this wheels installed on my Audi A4(sold) so I was planning on either sell the wheels or install them on my e92, I found on ecstuning a set of adapters that allow me install diferent bolt pattern(from 112 to 120,65.6 to 72.6) the adapters are 20mm + the wheels 42mm=22mm offset on 20"x8.5"/255/30/20.

I think I will buy the spacers give it a shot and install the wheels on my car since I haven't been able to sell the wheels.

Your decision to go with 225 in the front is a wise one. Check out this link and you will see that 225F/265R match almost perfectly on 19-inch wheels:

Those tires are too tall and a little wide to use on the fronts with those offsets. Also they make 15mm adapters if you want to make it a little easier.

You think will be safe to use 15mm adapters? This is the first time for me dealing with adapters or spacers.
