I could have probably made it work with 245 tires but did not try
im running 235 in the rear, so with 15mm spacer make it +7 offset would be easy
i already ordered pair of 15mm spacer , pics will be up as soon as they get here

In the rear, where the fender meets the leading edge of the rear bumper is an issue. You can roll/shave and pull the fender as much as you want, but if you don't take care of the bumper/fender mount, then you WILL rub.

What bumper is that and where in the hell do you get it? Don't tell me it is the stock bumper....

Out of the blue but I'm running pretty similar set up like your
KW v1 335xi e92
19x8.5 +15 225/35/19
19x9.5 +20 255/30/19

My Coil over isn't all the way down but similar height as urs. (Front)
If u remove the bump stop inside Ur shock, at the lowest setting, Ur car should be easily 1/2 to 3/4" lower.
I tried it, I ran to a similar problem when I lower mine all the way down and the car didn't go any lower but has an extreme rough ride feel in the front and it was because the shock was just sitting on top of the bump stop.

I cut it off by half, raise the car back up 1/2" and now it extremely comfortable.
Just bottom out (hitting the bump stop) when I hit big big dips with 3 people or more in the car.

I'm looking into
19x9 235/35/19 F
19x10 265/30/19 R

But, I'm not sure what offset to look into.
I am rolling my fenders, adjusting camber, and buying bump stops for my KW V3.

What do you think? I also have a BBK, so I may need spacers???

+20 and +25 as is very aggressive but then, if u know do fenders work, u shouldn't have a lot of problems

I'm running
19x8.5 +15 225/35/19
19x9.5 +20 255/30/19

And I'm changing it too
19x8.5 +10 225/35/19
19x10 +22 265/30/19

A little more but shouldn't be a problem to me since my fender is cut band shaved really good already.

I don't plan on doing anything much more than a little roll. So, this should still be safe, correct? No cutting or shaving for me
