11 e90 xdrive - m359 18x9.5 et35 and 18x9.5 et22

I know people say use the search but I just want a straight forward answer. Anyone done anything like this set up? I want a little concave look for the rear but don't wanna worry about the whole 1% in rolling diameter you deal with xdrive on a staggered setup. Suggestions appreciated

So you are asking for opinions on a square tire setup for the wheels?

I'm waiting to locate a clean set of gunmetal 219s and do the same if that is your plan. My girlfriend wants the look vs the overall performance aspect with her non sport suspension xdrive e90 LCI. Hoping a 245 40 18 will clear out back on 9.5 et23.

You don't have a staggered setup since the width of the wheels are 9.5. Unless you plan on running staggered tires on a square wheel setup. But that would be pointless. You're gonna need some spacers. At least 5 up front and 10-12 on the rears for a conservative look

So am I right in thinking the lower offset will give me a concave look in the rear?

Yes it will. The lower offset will give it a more concave look

Yes it would be. Depending on how low you are. If you're slammed you would have to remove the front alignment pin and Max it to -1.7 degree camber. I would run 225/40 if you're slammed. I test fitted a 235/40 with the same spec wheels as you and I was slammed and they fit. But My fronts are 19x9.5 +20 right now.
