Default aggressive wheel fitment for 535xi

Hey guys,
Im trying to run a 20x8.5 +35 up front and 20x10.5 +35 rear on my 535xi
The offset isn't really aggressive, but its the width of the back wheel that concerns me.
I've been told I will have to pull my rear fenders to make this fit, which will cost a lot.
Is this true? Anybody here running an aggressive set up? Any input is appreciated.

I dont think anyone really modifies their cars on here lol Ive been looking for a more modifying forum for e60s myself. This group tends to be more technical and share experiences/problems than anything.

You two are trolling hard. The thread below is all about wheels and suspension.

No, there were 3 or 4 posts from people that have modified their cars in the last year in that thread. The rest (in the last year) are people asking questions, some without answers.
The modified car owners just arent very active on here.

I have to agree with that thought... I am coming from Mitsubishi and Subaru world.. where there are countless modifications, details etc.

I have owned a few Audi's and ONE BMW from the past.. and left it almost completely stock (save a few things like APR ecu upgrades etc). I do indeed find that the knowledge base is extremely limited... and of course I would never have thought that having an AWD 535 would make life SO much more difficult (ie no choices of downpipes) Exhaust fitments... even wheel offsets.

I am slowly looking into this since I do plan on upgrading my wheels and most likely dropping the car.. but I think I'm just going to leave it simple... ie there are either the people who don't know much about the cars and options.. and then there are the few that go way into the deep end. Unfortunately it's hard to get advice/knowledge from those that are in the deep end.. because they probably have better things to do
