20x8.5 +25 on E92 front?

Has anyone tried this aggressive of an offset on the front of an E92?

What's your definition of impossible?

Someone here has done 20x9 + 32 with the same wheel disk setting. According to my calculations the 20x8.5 +25 would only bring it out to the fender 1mm more, but give more clearance on the strut side... am I wrong?

I have done it with 19X8.5 wearing 235/35/19 tires. Only very minor scraping on turns, but it wasnt bad at all

I've seen 20x9" ET20 on an e92. And that stuck out bigtime.

i'm running 20x9 ET32 on my E92. currentely i'm running 245/30 Hankook Ventus S1 Evo tires which are very narrow tires. But even when you mount the same tire don't forget that on the 8.5inch rim the tires are less streched than on my 9inch wheels.
