Forgestar F14 SDC fitment question

On the 2015 535xi lowered on H&R springs, can I use 20x9.5 +12 on the front and 20x10.5 +35 at rear with Super Deep Concave wheels all around?

Are 245/35/20 & 275/30/20 tires going to work?

Is this setup going to clear regular brakes?

Do you think there will be rubbing?

How much stretching of tires is going to be there?

So new wheels have finally arrived. These are 20" Forgestar F14 Super Deep concave staggered setup:

Front: FORGESTAR F14 SDC 20X9.5 +10 GLOSS GUNMETAL with
245/35/20 MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4S

Rear: FORGESTAR F14 SDC 20X10.5 +35 GLOSS GUNMETAL with 275/30/20 MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4S

Front ones are sticking out a bit with +10 offset. I hope there will be no rubbing. Rear ones could go out 5 mm more I think, I have some 5mm spacers so I'll try it out with spacers.

Pics are attached, let me know what do you think.

I'm still trying to decide if your fronts are poking too much? Rears are fine

BTW love the wing. Thinking about changing mine but I have to bring it to the body shop since i used BetaLink when i installed the 3d Style spoiler. Do you have any more angle shots? I'm trying to get an idea how it sits and how far off the trunk it is

I drove it yesterday for a bit, no rubbing on the front wheels, I'll probably go with 5mm spacers on the rear wheel to match the front ones.

lsturbointeg, I'll send you some more rear spoiler pics later today or tomorrow

Yes, a lot of stretch on the front wheels. Offset and tire sizes are recommended by Forgestar.

Some new spoiler pics. Shop that installed it used automotive 3M double sided tape and after a year is still going strong. Maybe I'll replace the tape after the summer ends. Good thing is that is very easy to remove 3M tape and apply new one

Those are perfect shots thank you. Looks like a few hundred to remove and repaint my trunk. This spoiler will flow since the backside of my car has an aggressive look with the diffuser and rear skirts

Love the SDC. Front are a little too far out. If you get the rear to look the same that might help with the overall look. The stretch is a little much for me but other like it. When you need new tires maybe go for 285 rear and 255 front.

So that is exactly what I just did, now front wheels don't stick out more than the rear ones, now they all stick out equally 😂
Thanks to 15mm spacers that I've installed on the rear wheels.

what initially I didn't know is that with F14 Super Deep Concave wheels smallest offset on the front wheels is +10 and that is what I have. This makes front wheels stick out 19mm compared to the fender, so you have to live with it if you want Super Deep Concaves on the front.
There is 3-4 mm clearance between the wheel and brake calipers on the front, so many go with Deep Concaves on the front instead of Super Deep Concaves.
There is just not much information about Super Deep Concaves on the front, I saw only 1 post and that member indicated that he didn't like the setup so he replaced his front wheels, but it was unclear what he ended up going with. So, kind of accidentally I got setup like this and I ended up liking it
