19 x 8,5 et 45 all round..What spacers?

HI
Ive tried the search function and google with no joy. Ive been offered a very good deal on a set of alloys at 19" x 8.5 et45 on all 4 alloys.

Ive got a 2007 E91 with the Msport kit and was hoping these would fit with some spacers and give a nice stance. So two questions, 1, Will they fit and 2, What spacers to give that nice wide look without rubbing.

Thanks a lot for looking :-)

Would I be right thinking 7mm spacer front, 10mm rear? Or would it need to be 20mm rear in which case im not sure if I want bolts that long.

Depends how flush you want them. You can use 15-20 up front and 25-30 in the rear. Better yet look for wheels with lower offsets so you don't have to use such a big spacer.

you don't need spacers with those. What tire sizes are you using 225/40/18 and 255/35/18?
