Mein Auto: E60 with a turbo
9.5 width on the front XI?

i'm currently looking for a set of 19 wheels for my XI.
it's a square setting 19 9.5 with ET 35. i ain't plan to lower but i'm worry the front will rub(inner)
any expert see a setting like this before or let me know if it works?

thank you

Thx TL, u don't think it will run the inner? I doubt the outer will have problem since I see ppl running 30 or even 28.

For the manufacturing it dose i.e. typically the higher the offset the less concavity you can have. The style 128's in my sig pic are x3 fitment flushed out with spacers style 128's in a Rwd offset i think 20et or so have a much deeper dish. But for the end user these number are what they are.

I re worked the calculator with my stock setup your proposed wheels and my tires, it travel in 17mm that's a number you can measure tire to strut to see if you have that kinda clearence. Assuming you have typical oem xi setup..if not play with the website to configure your needs..
