The rear is staggered so im running a bigger tire at the back, it pokes out more then the front.

But its pretty flush dude, I love the look.

Doesn't look like it from your pics but does the rear poke out at all or is it pretty flush with the fender?
Keep in mind that the pre-lci as pictured with the 220's has more room for fitment than LCI's

I'm about to buy 220m for my e90 LCI 328ix. No fender roll and on stock suspension. I'm wondering I'll have to roll the fenders or not.

I'm guessing if he rubs a little on a pre-lci, I'll definitely have to roll the fenders

Yes, you will have to roll the fenders.

Any place to help with rolling fenders in New England? I thought turnermotorsports would, but they said no. I'm in Maine.

I'm going to revive this old thread.

I am looking for the same setup on a 08 328xi.

Do you think it is possible to fit 275/30/19 in the rear with this set of wheels? Will there be rubbing?

The reason I ask is because 275/30/19 has almost identical rolling diameter as the 235/35/19 tires, where the difference with 265/30/19 is just over 0.8%.

I am currently on stock suspension and don't have plans to go lower.

Thanks for your inputs!

Yes it would fit with fender roll to rear, since you have pre-lci e90.

Same car with some lowering.

Also just so you know if your rear tyre is 265/30/19 you could also use 225/35/19 at front it would give you 0.2% difference. The 0.8% difference isn't too much either, so you could also use the 235/265 combo.

Thanks for the response, I guess I can't get away with 275's without rolling the fender. I'll consider 225/35/19 or 235/35/19 fronts and 265/30/19 rears.

265's are the preferred size tire for a 9.5 inch wheel anyways. Depending on what brand tire you get, you will have a little bulge on the tires with a 275.
