Can i fit 18x9.5 all around in my 97 528?

Ok i was wanting to have wide wheels, but i can also rotate them. I was thinking of getting 18x9.5 275-40-18 all four corner..will there be a problem in the front?

becareful, the normal tires that come on a 5er are 235's...or that's what i've seen on most 5's here in europe.

275 might be too wide...i would measure first. I would worry more about the rear quarter panel cleanarnce than the front fenders. at least in my 3er the 235's from a 5er fit perfectly, but not so much in the rear. it required extensive body work to fit those without rubbing.
