E90 335xi will these tires fit along with spacers

Hello! i am currently having these tires 235/35/R19 and width 8.5

However i want the wheels at the back to stick out a bit more, would putting 20mm spacers at the rear wheels be a good idea?

Also my other set of tires are front 235/35/R19 and rear 265/35/R19 and that setup looks really nice on the car so i am not intending to use spacers on those.

Appreciate your input on this!

What's the offset? Spacers are used to push out the wheels to be more flush with your fenders or for clearance purposes.

+35 with 20mm spacers would bring your offset to +15. Should be okay with 8.5 on a Pre-LCI. 15mm spacers would be optimal.

Ok thanks for your input on this! so you would recomend 15mm on each rear wheel instead of 20mm?

Say if i messure from my tire to my fender and it is 25mm or something, would 20mm spacer on each rear Wheel be ok? I am not intending to use spacers front.

265 vs 235 tires is it 30mm difference? sorry i am not an expert on this...

If you prefer your wheels to be flush as possible, you may go with the 20mm.

265 vs 235 tires is it 30mm difference? - Before installation, yes. But when installing on wheels, tires curve to accommodate the wheels width, adding to the overall diameter.
