Not sure if I should do a 18 x 9.5(f) (265) and 10.5 (r)(285) to play it safe or roll the dice with a 18 x 10 (f)(275) and 11 (r)(295). Wheels will be for mostly track and some summer street driving. Not worried about camber in front as I can adjust that. J
Since you do have camber plates up front I would recommend going with the wider front set up. You could use our 18x10" ET25 wheel in the front with a 275/35/18 tire. In the rear you could easily use our 18x10.5" ET27 wheel with a 285/35/18 tire or 295/30/18 tire. The 275/35/18 front tire has a short enough sidewall compared to the other 2 rear tire options so it will proportionally look right. It is also possible to use our 18x11" ET25 rear wheel with a 295/30/18 tire. It would sit 8mm further out than the above picture and could possibly rub under full suspension compression. Many E9X M3 owners use an 18x11" ET25 rear wheel with a 295/30/18 tire or wider and do not have problems and the clearances in the rear of a 1M and E9X M3 are very close.
