Help Needed: 19 inch rims xDrive offset fitment

Hey guys I have read quite a few threads now but figured Id post a new one to see if I can get a clear answer. Hoping you guys can help me out.

So I am dropping my F10 535 xdrive on Silvers coilovers next week I will drop the car to have no wheel gap I am not looking to tuck or anything

Below are the specs of my current setup:

19x9 ET 35
19x10 ET 38

Tires Conti DWS6
245/40 R19 100Y
275/35 R19 100Y


Can I fit a 12 inch spacer in the front and a 10 inch spacer in the rear without any rubbing issues once I have dropped the car to a height where there is no wheel gap?

I would essentially be at
Front 19x9 ET 23
Rear 19x10 ET 28

Or should I put a 5 inch spacer in the rear?

I have added some pics to give an idea of how the wheels are on stock height

Thanks in advance

It would be safest to lower it first, get it aligned, then measure and start messing with spacers. I bought a bunch of used spacers in all sizes and played until I got it where I wanted, then bought new sets with proper length bolts.

Im using a 19x9 et22 in the front for winter, but Im using a taller 245/45-19 tire as well as negative 0.5 degree camber arms, and mine will rub on big compressions. Not really applicable to your situation as you will have the stock tire diameter and be lowered about 1/2 more than me. Id wait and play once its down.

Looking good!

Thank you I think I will just lower first and then measure what spacer size to go with just to be safe

Right, I forgot it was you asking about the coilovers. I hope your roads are better than ours this year we have potholes galore after a warm winter.
