Help--will these OEM M3 260 wheels fit?

I just bought these wheels off eBay and now I'm now wondering if these will fit without rubbing or modification needed. I did check before hand and found people that fit the, but now I am seeing others talking about issues. They are the 18" E92 M3 wheel, Style 260, 8.5" et29 F & 9.5" et23. The tires are 245/40 and 265/40. Some posts talk about fender rolling? Can anyone provide any insight on this and what will be needed to fit them?

Here is a post where it worked okay with modifications--will this still be the case with an XI?

Thanks for the help.

Not sure about beemers but with my Subaru STi which is also all wheel drive you are not supposed to run a staggered fitment... it causes issues with the all wheel drive... i'm sure someone with knowledge about BMW will chime in soon...

I called BMW a couple of weeks ago as I was wondering what the biggest rim size was for the xi models. They said stock, the biggest you can go is:

225 35 19 front
8x19
Offset 37

255 30 19 Rear
9x19
Offset 39

The ones you are looking at are a bit bigger, you may need spacers but ultimately, won't know unless you try it.

With xi you can run staggered once the overall diameter is within spec.

If you are planning on tracking your car then running non-staggered is recommended to reduce understeer.

I run a staggered setup with my Xi and it's fine

Old setup
Front wheels = 19x8.5 40mm offset
Front tires = 235/35/19 michelin pilot sport PS2

Rear wheels = 19x9.5 39mm offset
Rear tires = 265/30/19 michelin pilot sport PS2

new setup
Front wheels = 19x8.5 35mm offset
Front tires = 235/35/19 michelin pilot sport PS2

Rear wheels = 19x9.5 30mm offset
Rear tires = 265/30/19 michelin pilot sport PS2

The LCI E90's (2009 & 2010 model years) require a much more conservative offset than previous E90's. I don't think you'll be able to go further out than a 35 mm offset in the rear. 35-45 mm offset is really the ideal range in the rear for an LCI. You might be able to pull it off with some serious fender rolling in the back, not positive though..
