There was a thread a while back where someone put 19x10 et37 with a275/30/19 on an lci without rolling. I don't see why the extra 7mm would be an issue after rolling, but it is on the aggressive side with the wide tire. Maybe choose an offset somewhere in between.

Well I just went outside and measured using the technique where you hang a quarter from a piece of dangling tape and use a ruler. I got maybe a little more than 1/4" so I could probably fit an extra 6mm or so?

9 et25 with a 235/35/19
10 et33/34 with a 275/30/19
I think those sizes would be prefect on you car with the rear fenders rolled. Here is 10et25 on a prelci which is the same as 10et33 on a lci.

Oh I thought you were saying the H&R's would be the "if you were running a stiffer suspension"

That sounds like it would work to me. When I do the caclulator above though is says the fronts will extend 16mm more than my current wheels. Doesn't that mean they will poke out of the fenders? Maybe for front I should do a 28 offset? Rears sound good to me with et34 so it will be 7mm more than my current setup.

8.5et35 + a 12.5mm spacer is 8.5et22.5 which is about the same as 9 et29. The front will only be 4mm more agressive than your current setup with the spacers and it should be flush.

Oh ok that makes sense. Maybe for front i'll do somewhere between like a Et26 or 28 cause I don't want it to really poke. Idk yet for sure first i'm waiting to hear back from AG about what my size restrictions are because I want to make sure they will do 9" and 10" and it's not just custom offsets.

On another note I wanted to thank you for all your help so far, I really appreciate it. I'll have to thank you when I do get them and post up pics

Did you measure the front like you did the rear? I don't think you'd poke with an extra 4mm from what your at now. Either way should look good. Good luck.

Ok so I found out that I am restricted to 8.5 and 9.5 so can only play with offsets

8.5et20 with a 235/35/19 9.5et28 with a 265/35/19 will fit pretty much the same as the 9/10 fitment. You can measure from your current setup to compare but it should be flush.

Those sound about right to me. 275's a no go on 9.5?

I'd say no because Michelins run wide, and your lowered, but it might be possible.

Got another question for you now that i've thought about it a bit more.

So I pulled off my summer wheels as i'm on the winter ones right now. I noticed I have quite a bit of camber wear which does not surprise me since I never had the car aligned after dropping it. Does this effect my clearance in the front? With the new setup I do plan to get the car aligned properly so that the tires wear evenly. Basically what i'm wondering is if I get rid of whatever camber I had on there, is that going to effect my clearance up front. Even though what i'm currently running is pretty much the same as running ET22, is the camber going to mess that up?

I think it should be alright. 8.5 et 17 is about flush and your fenders are rolled. You could always get an alighnment first and measure it.

So people with e90 lci's have run this with no problem? I'm just surprised since it seems like everyone runs et35

Lci and prelci are the same in the front.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=948

The rear wheel on that is 1mm further out than 9.5et28 on an lci. It actually looks like it pokes a little.

Yea I think i'm going to do 19x9.5 ET30 on the rears just to be on the safe side. So you honestly think that the fronts will be fine in that size even after I get an alignment?

Why don't you get an alignment and measure. I measured on my car and around 8.5 et17-20 would be flush. I think you should be fine since your fenders are rolled.

Idk I could but those wheels are packed away and waiting for someone to buy them and they're summer tires which don't do well in the winters we get here. It just seems weird to me since most E90's (not just LCI) run ET35. I want it to be as aggressive and flush as possible but really don't want overly aggressive and crazy rubbing.

You can measure from the wheels you are using now if you know the width and offset. I would do around 8.5et18-20 in the front and 9.5 et28-30 in the rear.

Here is 8.5 et20 in the front
