Will these wheels fit a 435i?

Hey guys,

I apologize if this has been asked before but I was wondering if the following wheel and tire combination will fit my 435i with X-drive:

19" 5x120 8.5 20mm offset
245/45/19 tires

Thanks!!

If you are factory ride height, it probably won't rub but will look pretty damn goofy.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. I'm a newbie when it comes to these things. Would you mind clarifying why it might look goofy?

Is there any way to know for sure if it will rub or not without installing them? I'm looking to buy a set of winter wheels from someone and they're being sold at a great price.

Thanks again!

Offset is too aggressive.

With that size, ideally you would want the offset to be around 30mm or higher. It might not rub on stock ride height, but as mentioned above, the wheel will stick out a bit.

245/45-19 is 7% taller than OEM tires, that's a lot!
