Wheel Set Up for E92

What's some of the widest and/or most aggressive set ups out there without rolling or pulling fenders?

Here's my current set up, Staggered Style 197's (18x8,18x8.5) with 12mm spacer up front, 30mm spacer in the rear.

Hmmmm, I'm going to have call BS on that...unless your idea of working without rolling/pulling fenders and rubbing is acceptable. Either that, or you have some ridiculous amount of negative camber in the back or you're stretching a really narrow tire to fit.

Your 197s are the same specs as my 193s. With 15mm spacers on the rears i rub with stock 255/35s on a 2010 E92 Sport.

Hmm interesting. I had 15mm on my 193s (rear)and didn't rub at all. Also a 2010 m sport.

But I'd agree. 30mm spacers and no rubbing? Doubt it.

It's minimal with the 15mm, but it happens.

I definitely rubbed fender at first. My right side was always lower for whatever reason and almost sat on the tire but after a few weeks it went away. I contributed that to either taking away tire from rubbing and the tire also pushing the fender and basically rolling it "naturally". It was fine when by myself but with a passenger I rubbed over every bump.

You can see how flush the rear was here. I sadly totaled her and don't have it anymore.
