Question Will this setup look okay?

I have a 2006 330XI. I ordered some ACS replicas today. the offets were 34.
19" x 8.5"

What do you guys think? Will they sit right? Would I need spacers? Stick in too much? too far? I need some expert opinions.

I don't want to have a staggered setup because I heard that will affect/ruin the AWD system.

Thanks

you will need spacers in the back, cause 8,5 is to small there, it will look strangely.

you live in canada? -i guess you need the AWD not for street racing (just kidding), but for the forest or the mountains or just for the snow, so dropping the car is no option! as long as you dont drop your car, you wont have any disadvantages concerning your AWD.

nearly forgot:

here is my old E46 325Xi with AWD and H&R adjustable suspension and of course 8,5x19 without spacers (this is the maximum drop with the H&R, because of the AWD - more was not possible )
