Smile Will These Wheels Fit My 2006 525XI(Please Help)

I recently bought a set of M3 matte black wheels...The size of the wheel is 19x8.5 all around with a 24 offset..The offset is what concerns me. ..I know for this car its recommended offset is between 35 and 42...I had an old set that was a 35 offset that was almost flush with the fender about a 1/2 inch off from being flush...so these wheels have a 11mm difference which visually it does not look like much which is less then a .44 of an inch...so iam thinking it may fit...iam thinking with sticking a 245/35/19 tire on or a 235/40/19 tire..i was told that it is possible but i want to hear for my self if anyone has heard or has done this them self's...thax kris[/SIZE]




These are the wheels..

The rears may be ok, not sure about the fronts. May be pushed past the wheel well 5-10 mm. That would look weird and cause rubbing. I guess you'll find out when you mount them.

I don't think so. Way too aggressive.
