need help with sizes 335 xi...........

I would like to get the M6 replica wheels but i am not sure what the best path is

i will be putting a coilover on the car, so the rear will be low. not slammed low but most likely no finger gap in the rear

because i have the awd version , i cannot go with a 235f / 265 r as the tire sizes dont match

i need to go with a 235f / 275 r. i dont want to have any rubbing issues at all. i mean never. i want to pile in 8 of my closest friends and not have to worry i will rub.

if i get a 275 rear with a 19/9.5 40 mm offset, will i rub? as the 40 mm offset is ok but i am going with a 275 instead of a 265

OR i have another option:

19/8.5 for the fronts and rears. 38mm front offset and i believe i can get these in a 20 mm as well for the rears. i am concerned about this setup that my rears will not stick out as much as they should, as i have no idea how they will look if i get them. will i need spacers for the rears? as i dont want to use them unless i have to

im trying to do my homework before i buy. any help will be appreciated

Worse case, you just need to roll your fenders. The sedan has a wider wheel well than the coupe so it should be ok even if you run 275s. Just make sure you use tires that has a more rounded side profile. If you like the M6 reps, go for the staggered look!

will putting on a 275 rear tire wiht a 19x9.5 40 mm offset have the same effect as having a 265 rear with a 19x9.5 30 mm?

because the car will be lowered im trying to avoid the problems some are having with a 265 rear with a 19x9.5 30 mm offset when lowered

because i need to go with a 275 in the rear as the car is an xi, im wondering if its pretty much the exact same effect, or will i have a little more room going with a 275 rear with a 40 mm offset

i just cant decide between this setup and getting a 8.5 rear with a spacer

The spacer has nothing to do with the overall diameter of your tire / wheel. It only adds lateral spacing (increase brake caliper clearance and push your wheel towards the fenders more).
