Need opinion on new set of wheels

These wheels have 18x8.5 with 20 and 38 offsets
and 18x9.5 with 24 and 45 offsets.
Will they fit on my car????
I used above calculator it seems 38 offset works for front
but rears? maybe 45 off set with 10mm spacer?
help????

What do you think?







They are 18 x 8.5 and 18 x 9.5
What size tires do I need?
235 40 and 265 35 ????? help

20's are hot, but I think they are a little too big on the E90 for my tastes.

I think 19 is the ideal size, IMO.

Yea, 20's are great for looks. But they kill your performance. The extra rotational mass makes your car accelerate and deccelerate a lot slower.

Kills your performance? Only if you buy cheap heavy 20" wheels.
