Rear 11x20 ET33 with 285/25/20 possible

Are rear wheels 11x20 Offset 33 with 285/25/20 on a E93 M3 possible without rubbing issues? Even if I drive with 4 persons?

Yes, that size will fit (technically), but it's a little too small for an 11" wide wheel.

I would recommend a 295/25/20 tire.

That size would result in a better fitment for your E93 vert.

I think you meant to write 295/25/20.

AR I would run a 10.5 in the rear to be safe. An 11 might be to aggresive since it's a 335 and not an M which is wider. If you do decide to go with an 11 you will have to run a negative camber and a stretched tire to avoid any rubbing issues. I've come across that problem myself, and had to do that so I wouldn't have no rubbing

Sorry but what is the benefit of running such a wide wheel?

I only see the opposite: additional unsprung mass, additional rotational inertia, additional chances of rubbing...

There are plenty of wide tires that will fit properly on a 10.5" or less wide wheel...
