Default Staggered wheels

I have a 530xi running 20" wheels. I want to run staggered wheels and im looking for rear tire sizes for it.
Wheel is 9.5 rear and 8.5 front.
Running 245/35/20 in front.
All help will be appreciated.

Can't comment on clearance. But, make sure the front and back have the same revolutions per mile. There are online calculators that take the wheel and tire sizes and calculate.

So what tire size are you running in the back? I know others had issues (like ride keeps pulling towards both sides) because the front tires are too short for the rear.
