Default E60 XI Aggressive Fitment?

Hi guys, long time e90post member, first time E60 owner.

Iím planning to purchase a set of wheels with the following specs for my 535XI:

Front: 20x9 et20 with 245/30/20
Rear: 20x10.5 et27 with 295/25/20

Although I will likely be changing these tires to 235/35 and 275/30, can anyone confirm that these will indeed fit on an E60 XI?

Just want to be certain before buying, appreciate the help in advance

Unfortunately, those offsets are two low for your AWD car. Proper offsets for xi's are typically in the ET 35 - 45 range.

I have done some research and saw that some XI owners installed the style 95s which have pretty low offsets (+24). Not sure if that statement is relatively true?

Just because something can be done doesn't necessarily mean you should do it.

Definitely agree with you. But can you provide more context as to why?

I have ran some pretty aggressive set ups on my E90 XIs with no issues. Is there a difference between the E90 vs E60 AWD set ups?

With the terrible roads around Montreal and Quebec generally, I wouldn't wear anything under 45 profile.
