335xi wheel & 19" tire fitment with BBS RS-GT

BBS RS-GT on a 335xi Coupe?
Will these wheels fit, and will 275/30/19 tires fit in the rear? I'm not afraid to roll the rear fenders if it's just a small amount of rubbing. Stock suspension.

BBS RS-GT Wheels
Front: 19 x 8.5 et 35
Rear: 19 x 9.5 et 25 --- Is 25 too aggressive???

2 tires combos I'm looking at:

245/35/19 front
275/30/19 rear = -1.004% rolling diameter difference

or

235/30/19 front
275/30/19 rear = 0.077% rolling diameter difference

Any help is much appreciated!

over 1% is not good. Go with option 2 - 235f/275r.

I also think that et25 may be too aggressive with a 275 tire but I could be wrong.

Do you think rolling the fenders will help? I'll start searching the forums for info on how much room I can get by rolling them.

19x9.5 et 25 is pretty aggressive for a coupe. You can roll your fenders but you may still rub over bumps or with passengers in the car. With the right amount of negative camber and a skinnier rear tire (or brand like Toyo or Falken) you may be alright.

Theres always the option of using a non staggered setup 19x8.5 et 32 all around, and there wont be any rubbing issues or issues with the Xi AWD system.

Ok thanks for the info. I've decided it will take too much effort to make 25mm offset rear wheels work. Maybe a non-staggered setup is the way to go.
