Default 2007 530xi wheel options/questions

Hello there everyone, I have a few questions to ask but before I do, please don't say anything that i didn't search or look because I did and everything was not the same. It was not clear as to what I can run so I am going to ask for a particular scenario. I have a 2007 530xi with the sport package and a few others as well. build date week 5/2007. 6MT.





1) It is unclear to me but am I mistaken that the xi's did not receive different rims with a sport package unlike the non xi's? (I have 138 while it seems i variants had the 123 sports and 122 non sport rwd.

2) I understand that there many differences in the power train so the front steering knuckles sit further out than the non xi's? requiring stock ET43. So, with that said, are there any suspension differences between xi sport and non sport? I also am aware that the xi's sit higher.

3) Stock has front 17x8 ET43 and rear 17x8 ET43, correct? Am I able to run 18x8.5 (what range ET front) and 18x9 (what ET rear) OR 19x8.5 (what ET front) and 19x9.5 (what ET rear) without any rubbing? I do not have intentions of lowering the car because I will be moving to Indianapolis attending iupui and I don't want to be a snow plow. Don't tell me the fender gap is going to be bigger than Kim Kardashian's fake ass. I will disregard those comments.

With this all said, my intentions were to get TSW Nurburgring in Bronze because I feel that they will look good with Deep Green Metallic. I hope. I am also looking at those because I love the csl rims and sort of like the miro 111 and 110 but want a good name behind them unlike miro and replica no name csl.

What size(s) would be best so that I wouldn't even have to think about rub?

I'm running oem 351m 19' wheels. 32et square set up. Running 15 mm spacers in rear as the wheels don't sit flush with the wheel well. My car is 06 530xi. My previous set up was 350m wheels. 18s So both were from the f10 model

Correct me if I'm wrong, the only different between Xi sport and non sport suspension are the springs and struts. Wheels and offset are the same. Currently I am running:
Rear: 275/30/19 with 19x9, 39 offset + 12mm spacers.
Front: 245/35/19 with 10x8, 35 offset + 12mm spacers.
They are nicely flush all around with about a few mm to play. 15mm spacers would have done a better job. I have this setup probably 5 years now with no problem whatsoever.

Thank you guys for the responses but why exactly are you both using spacers? Wouldn't a "32 square" setup mean that they are poking out 11 mm more than they already are plus a 15mm spacer bringing everything to a "17ET" as a final product? Or was the spacer installed because the wheel was touching some part of the suspension?

In my case the wheel didn't stick out far enough. I haven't a clue about the math behind it. But the front sat nice and flush with the car and the rear didn't so I slapped a 15mm spacer and now it looks good
