How do these rims work on an e90

I have a 2007 328XI with type 156 16x7 rims and tires, I am currently looking into aftermarket type rims and am looking for a trustworthy and good site. This the site I've been looking at https://www.elementwheels.com/prodde...mbeur-081995mb and was wondering if these rims would be compatible with the e90 (staggered vs square) and if I would need 12mm spacers. If possible I'd get the staggered set but would also pass on it if it meant more maintenance and/or worries. Any other sites would also be helpful.

So 235/35/19 - 265/30/19 would have the same rolling diameter then less than 1% I believe anyways. Also does anyone know if the understeer caused by staggared is something you actually feel or only when ur driving fast around corners.

lol, I see where your goin with that, but I think the sexiness of the car staggered outweighs the slight discomfort of oversteering
