For a 10 inch rear wheel that would equate to a 36 offset. So you need to get something close to 36. 34 would be the absolute most aggressive you could run.

27 is an absolute no go. Please feel free to PM me if you have any more questions.
Hey can you help me. I have a 550Xi with H&R springs. I want to go with 9 in the front and 10.5 in the rear. You think i should go with a ET 25 for front and ET42 for the rear ? I want an aggressive look but i dont want any rubbing issues. I was looking to use Nitto Invo tires.
