18X9.5 ET20 on LCI E90 pictures?

I currently have a pre-LCI E90. Summer wheels are Miro 111 18X8.5 ET20 front and 18X9.5 ET20 rear on stock-sized 225/40 255/35 rubber.

I love the way the setup looks on the current car, but I'm considering moving into a newer E90 LCI. With the 8mm wider track in the rear, I'm almost certain the width and offset is going to be too much: essentially what an ET12 offset would look like on my current car.

Anyone have pictures of an E90 LCI with 9.5" wide ET20 rears?

I'm going for a clean somewhat aggressive look that could pass for stock and not the 80's mini truck look now referred to as poke or stance...

Bump, can I see your ride setup picture? Looking forward to get similar setup like yours on my pre-LCI too.

9.5 et20 rear on an LCI would be very aggressive and rub for sure.
You would need a fend roll and neg camber to make it work

I just buy wheels for my LCI 2011.
front 8.5 et35
rear 9.5 et35

It looks a bit tucked. I plan to install 12mm spacer for front and rear.

Will it rub without rolling fender? Many thanks!!

Just get the spacers and try it out
May have to roll the rears

18x9.5 +22 with 245/40 tire can typically be run on a LCI without any fenders modifications. Lots of variables can effect your fitment, ie tire size, ride height, camber etc...

20 offest may work with a narrow tire, like a 245/40. Try it out and let us know.

hi everyone

finally I add a 10mm spacer for front wheel and none to rear.

I find it can be more aggressive. I plan to use 15mm for front and 5mm for rear.

though 5mm is such a tiny length, but you know, it will be big difference for car enthusiast like us

below is my car photos

guys, any comment?
