So these are 19" VMR710s with 245/35/19 on 8.5" 35 ET & 285/30/19 on 9.5" 33 ET. Nitto Invos are the rubber.
The 710s were matte black which I polished to a more satin gloss with Cquartz UK3 as a coating.

I wanted to let the future know that with stock Sachs on H&Rs the backs rub on dips. Maybe with stock 275s they wouldn't. For sure with the 45 offset 9.5 wheels there would be no rubbing. A 38ET would probably do it in my set up.
I am not really hip on the rolling because I don't like the thought of winter salt/brine collecting there.

Well they are now!!.
Yeah it's the usual fitment for these. I do have an XI which is the same.as an Xdrive.

I ended up snagging a roller from Ebay and rolling the fenders a bit. No rub now.

thanks for posting info about your setup! I've been researching wheels for a couple months now, I've browsed about every page of this thread. 2008 535xi...

Thing is, Im a little strange in the sense that I really like the look of the TE37 or the varrstoen ES2 replicas. also love the enkei RPF1 having trouble finding a source for the enkei wheels on the 5x120mm offset though, and who knows if they have the 72.6mm hub available. it seems people have done it, but I don't know if they are using spacers or hub rings...

any chance you are getting rid of the black style 124's in the background?
