09 335xi coupe Wheels Tires

Hi, First time poster.

I've got a 2009 335 x-drive coupe with KWV1 coil overs with rear fenders rolled.

I'm looking to put on a set of 19" rims in silver/black but want to make sure that the rims/tires don't rub.

I would like to run a square set of 19x9 bremmer BR05 all around but tirerack.com is saying that 19x9 with 34mm offset will rub in the front. Any experience running a square setup?

I have a set of 4 245/35R19 tires I'd like to run on a set of new rims...any ideas on which set of rims I should be looking at to prevent rubbing etc?

If I run a staggered VMR rim setup, can I still use the above tires without any harm to the x-drive system?

Thanks!

IIRC someone is running 265's in front...but don't quote me on that.

You can run staggered wheels with square tires without any harm to the x-drive system. Many people run a staggered wheel and tire setup.

2008 335XI  [5.00]
I run a staggered setup on my 08 e92 335xi. I'm running VMR v710s 19x8.5 rim and 235/35/19 tires up front and a 19x9.5 rim and 265/30/19 tires in the rear. No fender roll and no rubbing. I don't have it lowered yet but I plan on getting KW V1s in the not too distant future. The ride height on the xi is brutal.

Hit up the wheels and tires section of the forum.

You input a tire setup and see how many millimeters you loose on the strut side and how much it will extend on the outside. As long as you stay within 1% difference you'll be fine with the xdrive.

Does anyone have experience running a 19x9 with 34mm offset all around?
