Arrow BBS LM Fitment?

I know there are a lot of BBS LM fitment threads on this forum. However, I am currently deployed and going over all the posts is not too easy. I just ordered a 2011 335i Coupe and would like to order a set of 19" BBS LMs. I would like the specs (offset, spacers, etc.) on the deepest dish lip possible without rubbing. BTW, the car will be lowered on coilovers and I will not be rolling the fenders. Also, if you could include info on a tire package to go along with this LM setup I would appreciate the help. Thanks

19x8.5 +32 up front w/235/35/19
19x10 + 25 in rear w/ 265/30/19 run would require neg. camber or fender roll

this man is exactly right. I had that exact setup on my lowered e92. Had to roll/trim fenders to be safe. I had 275s before the 265s and it was a mess, rubbing everywhere.

Thanks guys,
Just a few more questions:

-So, I just want to be clear the setup below on a lowered 335i will work?
-Is the neg camber naturally going to happen from the coilovers or will the alignment shop have to adjust is to neg?
-Also, if I dont want to run neg camber in the rear, what would you recommend for a setup?

just get the fenders rolled or trimmed. no need to mess with camber.

I don't want to roll the fender. So what can I run in the rear so I dont rub but still keep a deep dish with little offset?

BTW, how much neg camber are we talking about?

Keep in mind that the coupes have to run a less aggressive fitment. I would go with the 19x9.5 ET32 rears if you don't want to deal with issues.

I you don't want to roll the fenders, 19x10 ET25 is too aggressive I'd say. Go for the 19x9.5 ET32 instead.

you could probably even squeeze a 5mm spacer to get to 9.5 et 27....I was running 9.5 ET30 with a Dunlop Sportmaxx 265 rear with no issues.
