Someone Check My Specs?

I have a set of 17 x 8 ET50 and 17 x 9.5 ET49 from an older Bimmer, wondering if they'll fit my E90 328i Sport. Its all stock, plan to keep it that way aside from a lip, 1" drop on springs and maybe minor mods. Rolling fenders is something I'd like to avoid, its a DD.

I did some reading and it looks like I'll need a 15mm spacer in the back, not sure if that's still going to hit the strut. I did search too.

Any ideas?

It will look stupid with those specs.Wheels will be very sunken in. Especially after you lower the car. You would be looking front spacer like 25mm-30mm and 20-25mm to rear.

Here is my car winter setup 17x8 et20 front and compared to that your front wheel would retract 30mm



As for the rear i have 17x8 et20 for winter and soon i will add 10mm spacer to make final et 10.This picture is without the spacer and compared to that your rear wheel would retract 10mm and after i add the spacer it will retract 20mm.

17x8 et10 will extend to same point as would 17x9.5 et 29
