Exclamation Urgent please! 19x8.5'' ET 35 & 19x9.5'' ET40 on 135i sport package

Hi there, I am really confused about upping my stock 18" style 372 wheels on my 2012 135i to 19''. I found some semi-concave wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport tires and was wondering if it would fit. I don't care if it sticks out the fender, as long as it doesn't look like a clown car. It is also my daily so I don't want it to rub while driving (espescially on the suspension struds) and that they will be enough space for water clearance during heavy rain (I do understand that it may happend while entering steep driveway and/or road bumps.

Here is the setup I'm looking at:

Front: 19x8.5" ET35 on 225/40/R19 with Michelin Pilot Sport
Rear: 19x9.5'' ET40 on 255/35/R19 with Michelin Pilot Sport

If it too tight and doesn't fit, will rolling my fenders be enough for it?

Thank you very very much!

I think you'll roll down the road fine, looking just a little bit funny. But then when you hit a bump you will not be happy. Camber plates up front will be the easiest fix there. Max factory rear camber will probably still mildly with passengers or over bumps.

You will not rub the struts, it will be the fenders. My stats are listed in my sig. My car is lowered around an inch, but otherwise that's my setup but you will be a quarter inch further poked out (until I fixed my rear issue by exchanging brake hubs).

Thank you for your input. I'll go ahead and definitely roll my fenders before instaling the wheels. I never have passengers in the backseat but girls ride upfront so I will also look to add camber plates in front like you're suggesting. I'm on stock sport suspension, do I need to change anything in order to add those plates upfront?

This setup it pretty far out of spec for a 1 Series. The offsets are too aggressive and the tires are too tall which WILL rub. These wheel and tire specs are designed for an F30.

With those widths, you'd want higher offsets (f:~ET45, r: ~ET45-50) and lower profile tires (f:35 r:30).

Didn't notice your tire profiles. For sure VMR is right, I'm running 225/35 up front PSS4s and 255/30r PSS. Also like they are saying, do not pick those wheels unless you have a reason. In my case, my wheels are Volks so they were worth the effort.

You will rub, and I personally don't think 19s look right until you lower the suspension, and then you will rub more.
