Are these wheels too big?

I am looking at set of 19" staggered split rims which are 19x9 et30 fronts and the rears are 19x10 et19. I know the rears will be a potential problem, but how much? Would these rims go on with a slightly stretched tyre or would further mods be necessary? Car is e90 lci. Thanks, Andy.

Search the members area for Audiotrash, he runs an LCI with 10" rears and spacers (I think), they're not ET19 but you may find some more info there. Or look at the American part of the site, there's a lot of different big wheel/tyre setups being used over there.

That will need the arches rolling and a stretched tyre.

The oem M3 wheels are 9.5 with an ET of only 29mm and that would just fit a pre LCI and wouldn't fit an LCI, so adding 3cm extra is never going to work without lots of work.

I thought it was a tad optimistic tbh, just looking for a really one off set up for my car and everything I keep looking at is almost there but not quite. Never mind, the search continues. Thanks for your help.
