Mein Auto: 2011 E90 335i
Can it work?

"Long time reader, first time poster." I'll preface this by saying, I'm better acquainted with e30's and e46's but recently bought my first e90. So needless to say, I'm kind of green here. At any rate, I have the opportunity to pick up some new wheels and rubber for cheap today. Was curious if I would have clearance issues with this setup on my 2011 e90 335i? I believe I have the sport suspension. Also, I apologize but I'm rather new to this and this may be a stupid question. But this setup will cut down on my "tire to fender gap," correct? I believe these are identical to the OEM e92 M3 specs.

Front: 19x8.5 et 15 / 245 35 19

Rear: 19x10 et 15 / 265 35 19

1.Would I be good to go or require fender rolls/pull on the rear or front?

2.If so, ballpark number on what it may run me?

3. Is it worth the money and the trouble, speaking aesthetically and functionally?

Any help is appreciated guys, thanks! Also, please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong as far as my post goes, I'm just now reading the introduction.

This helps visualize changes in tire and wheel sizes. Good for things like fender gap questions

ET 15 is too aggressive. The smallest that I have seen fit is ET 20, and that rubbed with some tires. ET 30 to ET 40 will fit, something between ET 29 and E 20 might fit.
