Need some help. Got a few questions

I drive an 07 e90 xi, non sports package.

I'm going to try to keep this short and simple. I dont know anything about staggered or not.

1). Are linea corse lemans, bbs reps?

2). If so... Can I fit 19's on my xi without rubbing or fender rolling?

3) can I fit 19's without rolling and rubbing while dropped on h&r sport springs.

4) compared to stock will the ride of the 19's (not dropped) be worse, equal or better than stock?

5)compared to stock will the ride of the 19's (dropped) be worse, equal or better than stock?

You can do 275, depending on the offset. That's what I'm doing. I have a 9.5 wide with 33 offset. I dont want to roll either. I have a pre-LCI xi. Im going with a 275 falken tire. There is enough room. Maybe after a drop you may need to roll a little. There are others on the forum that have this setup dropped with no roll.

With a 9.5 inch wheel, you could do offset of 33 or 35.
The problem is with a 275 tire, vendors on the the forum dont recommend 275 fitment. I'm looking into this very thing right now, I just got wheels and want to fit a 275 on my xi. I've found through searches that some guys have fit a 275 with 33 offset, and had a mild drop and not had to roll their fenders. Some have had et33 and spacers and not rubbed. Most of them have a falken or toyo tire because the sidewall is rounder.
