Will this wheel fit?

    I have been looking at the Niche Essen 20" in a staggered setup.
    20x9" ET35 in front, 20x10.5" ET35 in back.
    Will it fit without stretched tire? I guess the best tire dimension would be 245/40 and 285/35

    They also come in a 20x10" ET40 as an alternative. But I would rather have the extra 0.5" in width.

    On the front axle you're OK, and on the rear axle you should be OK as well.

    10" ET40 rims are not going to fit with 285 wide tyres. I tried that (MSP+) and rejected that setup. The clearance with the suspension is too narrow.

    10" ET35 rims with 285 wide tyres work on my car.

    Based on that, I assume 10.5" ET35 rims with 285 tyres will fit as well. (10.5" = 267 mm, so a little less than 285 mm of the tyre)

    20x10.0 ET40 will probably fit fine on a normal P85, I have 20x10.5 ET42 and that fits fine on my P85, but the same wheels will rub on a P85+ (can be easily solved by a small 5mm spacer though)

    I have the 60kwh model, with standard suspension.
    As there is no 20x10" ET35 option, only ET40, the best option would be to go for 20x10,5" ET35 on the rear with 285 tire?
    As these wheels are concave, the extra 0.5" will give a better look than the 10" wide.

    I guess 275 tire will guaranty fitment, but that will make the tire look stretched?
