I have a 328is on stock suspension and i was interested in a set of Zenetti 5-star rims which are 9.5 rear and 8.5 front. I was wondering if the rear 9.5 wheels would be able to fit w/ a 235 or 245 tire w/o any fender rolling. I'm planning on puttin 225s on the front wheels. I was told by the guy at the store that he could mess w/ the offset and make them fit but im a little skeptical. I'm sure that if i dropped the car i would deffinatly need some fender rolling, but i was curious that if i didn't drop the car if they would fit. The 8.5 rims come in offsets of 38 or 20 and the 9.5 rims come in 38. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou

8.5 is as big as you can go without rolling your fenders as far as I know..

yeah, you would need to roll the rear fenders...9.5 is really pushing it. You should look for 8.5in as the absolute widest for the rear. Optimum for the front is 8.0 without creating possible minor steering problems...

You don't want the 20 offest because that is only for a 5 series and will not fit.
