2010 BMW 335i e92
I have a 2010 BMW 335i e92 pre-lci. Current wheels are BMW style 193 18"x8.5 with 37 offset. I am currently looking at Enkei TSR-X 18x9.5 40 offset. I want to fit a 275/35/18 on it. Putting these on the rear. Anyone know if this would fit? Willing to roll fenders as much as needed/buy widebody fender pieces.

Hi there mate.

the 40 Offset "shouldnt" be an issue,
I am running a 19x10j rear with a 275/30/19 tyre set up on M359 Reps with a 38offset.
I had the rear fender sitting very close on the side wall, and would rub heavily on bumps and long sweeping corners at speed, so much so that it produced smoke on the fast corner :D

My solution, was source a set of E93 (Convertible) rear springs. they are much stiffer to compensate for the additional weight of the folding roof and mechanism on the E93, once i fitted the springs, they lifted the rear perfectly, and they actually give a great ride.

In your case, you might come through fine, however if there is some rubbing, then id suggest the spring solution, instead of rolling fenders, unless you want that uber low slammed look, then roll fenders, but im not a fan of that to be very honest.
