Will this work on a xi?

Would this fit with work done on the fenders? I'll also be dropped on KW V1. I was thinking about dropping the car first and waiting to get rims and tires but changed my mind and will be doing both at the same time.

The first set will rub, if it even fits... I'm going to say it's a no go. The VMRs would be fine

The tire specs for the first option will not work on an xi.. 235/35 & 265/30 will work fine even with the drop

What about 225/35 & 265/30 with the same LM specs?

I have a pre lci e90 with your first wheels specs and I rub in the front even with the proper fender work. You on the other hand have a e92 xi which has less space in the fenders than mine. In other words yes it is possible, I'd highly consider camber plates if you do go that route and be ready to rub a lot
