I'm running 9 up front with 31 offset and -1.1 camber and I don't have much room to spare. I think you will rub up front with this setup. My guess is you'll rub in the back as well.

I had 20x10.5 with 31 offset with 285s and I rubbed a little in the back (E93). There are some good threads on tips to eliminate the rubbing.

That sizing is more aggressive than we recommend. You may need some fender work to fit those.

I have the same exact question.

I have a 2006 330Xi (xDrive) and i want to get Avant Garde M359 wheels in a staggered setup. I was recommended 19x9 et35 for the front and 19x10 et38 on the rear.
Will this fit properly without mods or spacers?
Will it rub at all???

Note: I'm also lowering my car with H&R 50494 sport springs (1.3" front, 1.2" rear)
I plan or purchasing this week =)
Please help!
