What is the Max Tire Wheel and Tire Setup Stock 128i

What is the max Wheel and Tire Setup you can run on Stock 128i
Without Rubbing?

I have 205/55/16 all the way around currently

Looking at 17" Wheels maybe 18" but still want max tire for ride comfort

Looking at 245/45/17 in Rear and 225/45/17 in Front
Or
245/50/17 in Rear and 225/55/17 in Front

Will these Rub ? Or can I go Wider and Taller with Tires ?

What about 18" Wheels....whats the max tire width and tire height can go
Without Rubbing

I have 17x7.5" ET42 wheels with 245/45-17 tires all the way round. If I did it again, I'd first swap E90 rear hubs so I didn't have to roll the rear fender.

Thank You Chris for the reply... Could you Elaborate on this

"I'd first swap E90 rear hubs so I didn't have to roll the rear fender."

With the 245-45-17 does it Rub in the Rear ? and I'm not exactly sure what is meant by "roll the rear Fender" and why?

Thanks in Advance
