E90 LCI with Style 220 Square Setup

After searching the forums and looking at specs, I haven't been able to find a definitive answer to my wheel question.

I have a E90 LCI (2011 328i xDrive Sedan) and would like to put a square set of style 220 wheels on. I'm not interested in a fender roll which is part of the reason for the square setup. Is it possible to put the style 220 wheels on the car without having rub issues (hitting potholes, passengers in back, tight cornering). From what I have read I would need to use wheel spacers because of the offset and would want to go with a minimum of 10mm spacers. Is this correct? What size tires would be suggested for this setup (if it is possible) ?

220M square

I actually just put that on my 11' 335i xdrive sedan today.
220M OEM wheels
19x8.5 29et. Square set up
Running 245/35/19. With no spacers. I think it's a perfect fit. I had 200lbs in back seat and trunk which were my stock sport wheels 17's with runflats and no issues, no rubbing at also. Potholes were my #1 concern but I figured I just gotta try to avoid as best as I can. Hope this helps.

Thanks for confirming and attaching a pic of the 220s on an E90 LCI. Is your suspension stock?

These are square, or you have 8.5 front 9.5 rear?
