Will this setup rub on the strut side?

I am finally thinking of pulling the trigger on some wheels. The offset is super conservative. Rears 19x10 et48 & Fronts 19x8.5 et40... My question is will that setup work without rubbing on the strut side, especially in the rear? I think the front will be ok but uncertain about the rear. And I do not want to roll with spacers. Any help is appreciated.....

LOL at bueller...

Not sure if the clear the struts or not. Never heard of that high offset, but I've seen e90 with some BBS LM reps that was 19x10.5 ET40, I believe.

That's a really high offset. 19x10.5 ET40 is equivalent to about 19x10 ET46. So you're right on that edge there. It should be okay.

Hmm... 19x8.5 ET40 should be fine. If you really want it to be aggressive, add a 5-8mm spacer. For the rear in 19x10 with ET48, that seems too tucked in. I believe that will hit your strut. You might want to add a spacer there: 8-12mm. This should prevent rubbing in the strut and sit flush with the fender.
