New here, looking for a little guidance.

Good day, all. I'm looking to pick up some wheels this weekend, but before I commit, I'd like to check and make sure of fitment.
size: 19"
front: 8.5 with a 15mm offset
rear: 9.5 with a 20mm offset
vehicle: E90

Add'l info: I'm considering a mild drop in the future for aesthetic purposes.

TIA for the assistance.

Looks pretty normal, just a bit more aggressive front offset. Rear is only a couple mm off of stock, front is pushed out more. Stick with stock front size, especially if lowering.

Thank you, Ben. The are a used set, so I don't have an option regarding the fronts. If I were only going to lower about .5-1.0", would the front offset still be an issue? And as-is, how much past the fenders will these stick out?

Should be inside the fender, but close to it. Probably ok with moderate lowering, but if you go to a 255 width, which many people do, you will almost certainly rub. Someone just had this issue with the same offset wheel: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=589212

It may rub a little if you lower it, but probably can be fixed with negative camber if it becomes an issue.

First option would be to do the Re11 in stock sizes: 245/35R19 and 265/35R19 are both available.

You can get 255/35R19, but then for the rear there's no 275/35R19. 275/30R19 available, and would fit, but a tad short. 285/35R19 would be an option. Pretty wide for the stock wheel, but would mount correctly. Maybe a little tight fit, but probably doable.

My best advice would be to make your life easy and go with the stock sizes.
