E91 wheel advise

Does anyone know if I'll get away with 9.5 rear Et20 on my E91 Lci I've looked around but can't see if anyone has done it, it's lowered 20mm as well with no arches rolled at the moment I'm running 9x18 Et 20 and there seems quite a bit of room, any help much app

Don't know if it helps you at all but I've just fitted 19x10 ET38 with 265/30 tyres to the rear of my LCI E91. Although I have no issues with rubbing, even fully loaded (standard MSport suspension), there isn't that much room left so I think it'd be tight given yours would stick out a further 12mm, especially if you're lowered as well.

I've got 18x9.5 ET20 with a 255/35 tyre. Had the inner arch massaged a little but it rubs on the arch liner on heavy compression. Not enough to bother me and you can't hear it. Minimum camber for the height it's at, around -2.

Only photo I have that sort of shows the rear.

Just seen this thread

Bmw M225 Wheels on a Lemans Blue E91? http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=464590

I know they have issues with cracks but that is usually due to run flats. I think e91 really suits mv4's

I've got 19x9.5 rears with 255/35 on M Sport shocks and Eibach Pro springs.
Unfortunately I cannot tell you the ET off hand, but they M3 fitment I believe (wheels were on the car when I got it)
I've never had a single rubbing issue in 3 years including when having 3 people in the back and a boot full of stuff.

Thanks, not bad for a 205k workhorse I guess, looks better in the photo!

All the rubbing is doing on the back is polishing the top corner of the sidewall, it's not digging in as it's rubbing against the arch liner.
