I'm going for 255/275 on my LCI 335i coupe, also will need front camber plate and max rear camber to get it done I think. Or even spacer.

Probably going for Dinan one, not TOOOO expensive

Here are a few pictures of our 17" setup on the E9X. We think this setup looks great with the meaty tire!

17x9" ET30 & 17x9.5" ET35 Satin Black ARC-8's with 245/45/17 and and 275/40/17 tires.
Will these fit an LCI E92 as well? Any fender rolling or camber plates required?

If I wanted to get 17x9 for a sport package e90 328i would I need spacers?
I would like a square setup, preferably 245 or 255 width, but don't want to have to mess with spacers.
Car currently has 225/255 stock staggered 17s

That is correct! This setup will work wonderfully on the LCI and Pre-LCI E92 chassis. We would recommend the following fitment if you are looking to avoid camber and fender rolling:

Front: 17x9" ET30 - 235/40-17
Rear: 17x9.5 ET35 - 255/40-17

I hope this was helpful information. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks!

Thanks Max. What about 275/245?

What does it take to fit these?

Mawzi,

Per our recommendation below you can see what it will take to fit a 275/40-17 tire in the rear of the E9x:

Front: 17x9" ET30 with 245/40-17 tires
Rear: 17x9.5" ET35 with 255/40-17 tires
- Direct fit.
- 235/40-17 front tires can also be used as a direct fit
- 275/40-17 rear tires may require rolled fenders and/or negative camber depending on ride height.

Thanks!
- Max

My summers are 17x9.5" et 35. I believe I went with 245/40 because I was worried about fit. I might try a 255/40 next time if the rubber doesn't poke out much. They'll require a small 5mm spacer unfortunately to clear the inner strut in front. A 3mm may be too close. Rears can take a much beefier spacer if you wish to make it look more flush. Any front camber is welcome, they suggested at least -1 deg, no camber plates required but alignment pin can be pulled for some play.

PS. Pre-LCI may have more space than LCI, I haven't researched this in a few years.
