Don't want rubbing.

Also, do you have these sizes in stock in Silver and Anthracite?

Thank you.

I want to run stock 18" M3 size 245/40/18s in front and want a stock look.

The 18x9" ET31 is a direct fitment for the front of your 1M's and can easily use a 255/35/18 or wider 265/35/18 tire if you are willing to stuff a wider tire onto the wheel and lose a little bit of sidewall response for grip. A 245/40/18 will also fit on the 18x9" ET31 fairly well even with i's narrower 245mm width because of it's taller 40 series sidewall.

In staggered set ups we prefer to see the 18x10.5" ET27 mounted in the rear. It provides ideal wheel fitment where some may prefer a small wheel spacer for the 18x10" ET25 and the 10.5" supports much wider tires better and would give better response out of a 285/35/18.
