Any rubbing issues

I am thinking about purchasing the 19" m3 csl type wheels from mod bargains with the offset of 19 8.5 front, and 19 10 rear. Will I have issues with rubbing on a 2006 325xi? Thanks!

If you're looking for a set of CSL style wheels, I'd recommend that you check out the Sportline CS.16 wheels. They're rotary forged and are stronger and lighter than other cast wheels that are out in the market. The setup that is going to work perfectly is the 19x8.5 ET35 with a 235/35/19 up front and the 19x10 ET38 with a 265/30/19 in the rear. This meets the requirement for the XI aka X-drive models and the rolling diameter of the tires are within the 1% difference requirement. This will give you a flush look and will not cause any rubbing issues!
