Wheel and Tire Question - I'm a gump

People of the Thread,

I have a 2011 535 x-drive and am looking at a staggered setup for my rims. I currently have 20x8.5's on all corners with 245/35ZR20 tires and am looking to get some more width in the rear (just buy buying two wider rims of the same style). If I go with a 20x10 with a 285/30ZR20, do you think i'd be good with the rotational diameter being the same front and rear (don't want to mess up my x-drive)?

My calculations say yes, but like I said in the title, i'm a gump and could be off.

Also, what kind of offset do you all think I should run with on the rear. I was thinking 30.

Any and all feedback is much appreciated.

Yes. the tire for rear 285/30/20 will work. Thats most ppl have for their xdrive cars. 245/35/20 front 285/30/20 rear. My brother has xdrive car and he use 245/35/20 front 285/30/20 rear. They work perfectly fine without damaging hes xdrive system. PM bobblehead for the offset of the wheels. He knows very well about the offset, so he will be able to help u out.
