VMR V701 Wheels on 435i Gran Coupe

Wheels and tires
F: VMR V701 19x8.5+35 in Matte Black with 235/40R19 Michelin PSS
R: VMR V701 19x9.5+45 in Matte Black with 265/35R19 Michelin PSS

Suspension
M Sport Package (but not the Track Handling Package / Adaptive M Suspension)
No modifications (yet )

Random notes
1. The arc of the spokes are a nice match for the F36 roof line
2. BMW center caps fit
3. There’s ~ 2mm in the front and ~ 1mm in the back from the widest part of the tire to the outer edge of the top part of the fender; the tread curves in farther
4. Snapseed Drama filter applied to make the details stand out better in phone photos

looks like the string is almost on the tire side wall.. any chance for hitting your fender if you hit a big bump or drop in the road?

I'm not sure ... note that the tire curves in at the top giving some additional space for suspension movement in addition to the gap between the top of the wheel and fender before the potential for rubbing. However, an exact answer would need to know the total possible suspension movement and also if it's perfectly vertical or angles in.

So while I haven't noticed any rubbing, I can't say with certainty that it's impossible in all cases under all deflections.
