17 Inch Wheel help?

17 x 8 offset 20 all around. Would it work on a LCI e92 (Stock sport suspension and oem spec camber, fenders are not rolled)? Sorry i just transitioned from a pre-lci e90 to e92 so not too familiar with what will work. Thanks for your help!

Yes it works with 225/45/17 front and rear. Rear could use spacers also.

I have 17x8 et20 front and 17x8 et20+10mm spacer with 225/45/17 as my winter setup. I'm probably going to go with thicker spacers this winter, since my rear fenders are rolled.

Thanks for the reply. But I think the offsets for a lci e92 are a bit more conservative than a pre lci e90. I'm pretty sure the rears 17x8 et 20 will be fine but Idk if that offset is too aggressive for the fronts?

There isn't that much difference at front, if any. E92 have plastic front fenders, tho.

This has 18x8 et20 front with 235/40/18. I would suggest to stay with 225 wide.

As for the rear E92 have slightly less room than pre-lci e90, but still 8 et 20 will extend to same point as 9.5 et39 which is little bit sunken. With 10mm spacer to rear it would be better looking for sure and would wheel would be at the same point as the ones on that link.
