Modifications for larger Wheels?

My first post; bear with me...
Looking to change up my OEM wheels and go with larger wheels.
Currently running 18" front and back; 225 front, 255 back. Want to go to 20" wheels; 245 front and 285 back.
Do I need to modify my rear fenders at all for the wider 285's? I have seen conflicting info the Tire Rack site. If I need to mod, how difficult/costly is it?
My car is '08 335i coupe.
Thanks all!
T Novak

Not sure about 20's but factory 19's will fit 245X35/275X30 without mods.

It likely depends on your offset more than anything. But my money is on the yes, you will need to expect some modification for fitment that does not rub.

Thanks for the inputs. How do I tell what my current offsets are?
