ET40 is safe, but not flush.
What do you mean when you say "look good"

Did you take into consideration the fact that LCI offsets must be +8 higher than pre-LCI for the same look/fitment ?

Yes, I was more thinking about the fronts.

Hmm, good question!

I don't want it tucked in/stock but more towards flush.

Please post some pics, If you have any.

Read before that ET35 is the ultimate for E90 LCI.

This is 19x8.5, 9.5 ET35 on a pre-LCI. I want this look.

That look nice for a ET35.

My old 19" was 19x8.5 ET35 and 19x9.5 ET32 and they was not really flush.
So ET30 in front and ET35 in the rear on an e90 lci would be nice.

Exclamation HELP!

I have a 335i sedan with m-tech sport package. I decided to change the wheels and put some 19" Allufelgen SF-71. The tires that I used were Hankook Evo V12 245/35/29 and 265/30/19. The car looks really nice but Im starting to have some rubbing issues on the rear side on the tire face.

Does anyone know if just rolling the fenders will fix the issue or just by installing some spacers on the rear side? The offsets on the car are OEM, Does anybody know what should I do?

Thanks!!

i have et40 up front on an 8.5 but added a 10mm spacer making it et30. It sits pretty flush for my liking at stock height.
