Fitment question (yes, I've searched. . .

. . .but I haven't found a direct answer to my question.)

Hello, everyone--

I have an '11 135i with Sport Package and BMW Performance Suspension. I'd like to replace the stock wheels/tires with Michelin PSS (225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 back) on VMR V710 wheels.

Can anyone tell me definitively (ideally from first-hand experience) whether or not I'll experience rubbing? I'd rather not roll the fenders if I could avoid it.

Also, if you know that this setup will rub, can you suggest any alternative, comparable wheels and tires, or any solutions other than fender-rolling?

Thanks in advance!


PS: Gill at Tire Rack wasn't able to give me a definitive answer and suggested I contact VMR. Haven't heard back from them, so I thought I'd bring it to the forum.
