Hello my friends,

Too much!

9,5J 19" IS20 is the maximum with 255/30 R19 wheels.
The best is 9,5J 19" IS27.

Yes, he's right. +22 offset with a 9.5" rim is already pushing it real close. Let alone with a 10" rim. A +35 offset with a 10" rim would be also quite close to sitting flush. I would shoot for more a round a +38 or +40 offset if you're going with a 10" rim.

For the front, that's the same situation. An 8.5" rim would be pushing it real close at +22, if not already rubbing. A 9" rim would need at least +35 to make sure it doesn't rub, at least whilst not turning. Not sure what'll happen when you need to make a tight/sharp turn with the wheels turned all the way.

For reference, the most common setup on our cars is a 8.5" front with +35 and a 9.5" rear with +33 or +35. This leaves about 10mm on both the front and rear of clearance, so those who want to add 5 or 7mm spacers can do so.

You definitely have to cut out some material from the inner plastics wheel housing.

If it will fit also depends on the tire sizes you will chose.
IS 22 with 255/30 R19 will just fit, with not so wide tires (e.g. Hankook).

Below you can see pictures from a trial, I've made.
I've tried 12mm spacers on my 9,5J 19" IS32 wheels with 255/30 wheels = IS20.
I've made the diagonal full compression test, required by the German technical inspection authority.



The space between the rear bumper and the fender is very close, when there is full compression:



In my opinion, the look of these wide wheels is a bit old school, when the wheels are so wide outside the fender:



For me, 9,5J IS27 are the best choice. This size I have at winter wheels with 265/30 R19 and this just fits.

At my IS32 summer wheels I will install 5 mm spacers next season, so that they will also have IS27.

How IS27 is looking, you can see in this post: http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=798894

Running +22 will require trimming inner wheel well?

Do you mean the inner plastic wheel housing? If, yes. But this you already have to do at approx. +35.

Today I test fitted a set of CE28N 19 x 10.5 +25......I drove on it with no rub at all on M-Suspension. Yes the wheel poked out but it was just a test fit. I now believe i can ride a 9.5 +22 in the rear!!
