18x9.5 all the way around

Ive looked and cant find shit. I have an 06 325 and i am wanting to run a 18x9.5 all the way around. The wheels i am getting are not offered in a 9in. Is anyone running this set up? I know i will need to roll and pull the fenders but i just dont want it to be too much. I can do a 8.5 all the way around but i dont think i will be able to achieve the offset that i would prefer. I dont like the staggered look so thats out of the question.

Input would be greatly appreciated

Totally possible. I have 18x9.5 all around.

Few things tho and remember this is in my case.

My front offset is 35 which is 2mm away from front strut.I have driven like 3 months like that its not a problem . If you have coilovers you need spacers like 5mm.Im lowered 35mm front and 20mm rear with Hr lowering springs.

Haven´t done any modifications to front fender. I just use 235/40/18 tyre.It fits without problems.

For the rear my offset is 22 and i have 235/40/18 tyre. No rubbing and no fender roll or anything else, but if you´re going to use wider tyres with offset like that you probably need to do sligth fender roll.

Here is few other examples
18x9.5 et27 front and et10 rear

You don't need to roll and pull the fenders to fit 9.5"s
