19x10 ET20 rear on LCI - will it work?

hey guys

I own a 2009 LCI E91 (facelift) and would like to know if any of you had an opportunity to run 19x10 wheels on the rear?

I do not have coilovers, I will go with Eibach Pro Kit. the offset on the 19x10 wheels is ET20. they are BBS CH.

will I require a lot of fender work to make this work? compared to a 19x9.5 ET40 wheel which BBS recommends, the 19x10 ET20 will poke 26 mm (outside).

I am guessing that the 19x9.5 ET40 has about 10 mm clearance to the fender. so rolling the fender 16 mm is a lot in my opinion.

what are your thoughts?

please keep in mind my car is an LCI (facelift) model

thank you

19x10 wheels is ET20 on an LCI is too aggressive... ET30 is already pushing it...

it can be done w/ super stretched tire, fender work, and crazy camber....

As said above it's possible, but not without work.

These are 19x10 ET25 on stock m-sport ride height and camber w/265s to give you some idea (on stock ride height, the 265s seem to work, but I will be dialing in the camber and doing a fender roll for safety's sake)...

...but et20 on a drop i think would be pushing it unless you really want to ramp up the negative camber and maybe allow some poke.

excuse me for getting a little off topic here, but considering I have a pre lci I cannot help you out too much here, but I know that the lci less space in the fender but with a good fender roll couldn't you easily fit 19x10 et 20? I've seen 19x12 on a lci with some camber of course but still.. I run 19x11 et 20 on my pre lci with stock camber so i'd have to think that with an lci 19x10 et 20 should fit fine

close enough to what your looking for

Long shot, but would it be possible for 19x10 et20 to fit on the front with M-sport suspension? I don't plan to lower my car. I'm looking at a set of used wheels that have a squared setup. Just curious. Anyone?

Did you ever end up doing this? I'd love to see it as I'm looking to do a 19x9.5 +20... w/245/35 tire... so not as aggressive but similar. I dont mind rolling/pulling the heck outta the fender.. its just the camber i dont wanna go nuts with
