Can I get these wheels to fit?

Hey guys just bought a set of sexy iForged Sprints on here. They are 20" tall and 9" wide in front and 10" wide in back. They have 245 25 20 tire in front and a 285 30 20 tire in back. The wheels were specifically made for the previous owners 08 550i. My question is what are my options? Will I have to run an aggressive camber or I was looking at the wheels hub thickness and it is a few inches thick, could I get these shaved down a few inches to make them fit in the wheel well more. Not sure if that is possible but I have no idea what the off sets are since iForge doesn't release them. Any ideas would be great cause I love how they look on my car and don't want to sell them (which currently I do)

Hey guys going to roll my fenders tomorrow (did it on my s2000). I figured before I went through the hassle is there a point. I took some better pics to show how they sit in the fenders. I did notice the two bend lip and that I wont be able to get it completely flushed.

just swap the rear tires down to a 265/30 size and roll the fenders if needed. there are a gazillion threads in this forum about how to check how much space you need to clear and the different options to resolve that.

Depending on offsets a 245/30/20 and a 285/25/20 will fit.

Also if you look you can see the tire where its rubbing. I really dont want to camber anymore than stock. I guess I could see about a smaller rear tire, just hate to spend even more money when the ones I have are great.

if you are running 5 series wheels you are prob looking at offsets in the front of about +15 to +20mm and rear in the low +20mm. If I'm not mistaken I think the e90 have a little more clearance for smaller offsets. If you want to be safe you could run 235/30/20 in the front and a 255/30/20 (or 265/30/20 if you want to push it) in the rear. That will put a SMALL stretch on the tire but nothing to be scared of. And that is something any local shop should be able to do.

keep in mind the RECOMMENDED tire size for 20's on our cars are 245/30/20 and 285/25/20. And that is with wheels that are close to factory set for a e9x.

Might need to pull the fender a bit to prevent absolutely no rubbing. I would throw in a bit of camber just so you don't have to mangle your fenders too much.
