alignment needed?

Just went from stock 18 setup to 19" wheels with et32 offset. 19x8.5 et32 235/35/19 front and 19x9.5 et32 rear 265/30/19 rear. No change in suspension. Should I do alignment? Thanks for advice.

Wow, ET32 would be outer than the fender, am I right? Somebody said you need do alignment, somebody said no, but if you are intended to change suspension in coming future, better do it after your new suspension has installed.

No you dont, unless you installed some sort of suspension on the car.

Yes it sticks out but no rubbing. I will eventually drop it but it will be slight drop. When its dropped I have read on this forum that it will fill fender. Don't know how true it is. I love the wheels but they are aggressive.

Do you know how to roll your fender? Maybe can help a bit but it's all depending on how much your wheel stick out. On my ex-E92 335, I have rolled it but still I found the edge of fender too thick, I asked garage to hammer it flat. But in F30, the edge is thin, so you just need to roll it to a bit wider.

I am going to see if its possible to shave 3 mm of the rears. iND had BBS with 19x9.5 et35 rear and it looks perfect with H&R. If I can do this it would be perfect solution
