Running a square setup on a RWD 335i

Hey guys. Im currently running a staggered setup in my 2007 335i coupe. I have been looking for a set of 335is rims and found a great deal on a square setup. It comes with a set of 235/35/19 tires all around.

I have read a few threads on running a square setup on RWD and I see that most indicate that they also purchased spacers. Do I definitely need spacers to make this setup work? Or is it just recommended for the aesthetics?

I will most likely end up getting spacers anyway, but would like to know if I can run this in the meantime. Thanks!

you wil be able to run this fine. spacers in this case would be for aesthetics.

Great! Thanks for the quick response.

Another quick question. The car it is currently on is running 20mm spacers in the rear and 15mm in the front. Would a similar setup with stock fenders cause rubbing? Or would I likely need a to roll my fenders?

That's about the same set up I run on my RWD 325i. I run a square setup with 18x8.5's with 235/40-18s. I use ultra-high performance all-season tires to try and get decent wear out of them. You'll be happy with it.

How could anyone possibly answer that question without having any specs on the wheels in question
