offset/tires help for LCI

looking to go 18x9.5 ET33 265/35 on the rear of a 2011 e90 lci. Anyone with this set up have any rubbing issues?? I figure ET33 is pushing it as far as it will go without rub but want to make sure it doesn't.

I have that setup, only in ET35. The PSS I put on have a very wide shoulder, so I was rubbing on bumps and around fast sweepers, especially with people in the backseat.

I took it to an alignment shop (was needed anyway), and they added some camber. Rubbing's been gone since then--a little over a year.

I think if you either pick a more commonly-shaped tire, add some camber to the rear or roll your fenders, you'll be fine.

It really depends on your alignment and the tire you choose. If you're nervous about rubbing, roll you're rears and it will help add a bit more clearance.
