NO you will NOT rub. I have 19x9.5 ET25 on stock suspension NON sport with 275/30/19 rear and it only ever rubs ever so slightly with 2 people in the back. So with the ET29 on stock suspension you should be absolutely fine. That's if you have a E90, if you have a E92 it's a diff story.

Yes you will rub. But not so bad to the point where fender rolling cant fix it

i have 265/35/18 with ET30 wheels and i rub without passengers in the car. With just even 1 person in the backseat, i rub over most uneven surfaces. But again, some fender rolling will fix this.

I said he would rub because he has an E92. "rubs ever so slightly"=rubbing.

There is chance that you may not with tires that has roundy sidewalls. People feel free to chime in the post following (it's made to help all of you wondering about offset and I posted all actual data from people who's running the set-ups to find out what's lowest/highest offset for E92).

E90 is less prone to rubbing compared to E92 right?
