I'm gonna go for a 245/40/17 +40 square setup running a Sumitomo HTZIII tire. I need to get an alignment soon anyways so I'll just pull as much camber in the front as possible without plates.

Anyone see any issues?

Tires - Hankook Ventus V12
Front: 225/40

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber:

~2.5˚ Negative Camber up front with 1/4" Toe-Out
~2˚ Negative Camber in the Rear with 3/16" Toe-In

Notes:
With someone else in the car I get a slight rub in the rear on big dips. The front wheels only just barely clear the struts by a few millimeters, but the tires have at least a quarter-inch of clearance from the spring height adjuster, so no rubbing. I believe with 245's in the rear there would be no rub, but you're losing performance and also have a stretched looking tire which I'm not a fan of. The same rear wheels with an offset of 50 would have been a better choice. The vehicle is sitting on an incline in the photo which is why the rear appears lower than the front. I chose these offsets with my suspension modifications and camber settings in mind, with this wheel/tire choice being for daily driving, not the track. Track wheels coming soon.

This is what I was looking for!
Thanks

I have a chance to get a free set of VMR's with these specs and I was wondering if they would fit or not.

235/40-18 all round

Hi, this is my first time here. Yesterday i tried

18*8 E.T. 35, M6 réplicas
235/40/18 all round

It rubs, think only in the front. Do you think that with fender rolling It would be ok?

My first post…all the posts before on this thread made this a lot easier for me to figure out…thanks all. Here’s what I did…

Wheels: (VMR VB3s)

Front: (18 x 8.5) (et40)
Spacer: (none)

Rear: (18 x 9.5) (et45)
Spacer: (none)

Tires:
Front (Hankook) (V12) (225/40/18)
Rear (Hankook (V12) (245/35/18)

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber:
Stock suspension

Notes:
No rubbing that I’ve noticed…fitment looks great…fills wheel wells perfect. Possibly could have fit 255, the tire wall leans in a bit in the back. Overall super happy and big thanks to Jurrian at **********s.com for hookin me up with the awesome wheels and great service!!!

Yokohama Advan Sport

Wheels: Stock M Sport

Front: 18 x 7.5
Spacer: None

Rear: 18 x 8.5
Spacer: None

Tires:
Front Yokohama Advan Sport 225/40ZR18
Rear Yokohama Advan Sport 255/35ZR18

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber: None


Notes: No rubbing. I find it best to run them at Front 42 psi and Rear 44 psi. They are fairly new, but are grippy in dry and wet. No more tram track issues either.

Hello fellow 1ers! I'm on the market for some new tires and possibly new wheels as well. I have a stock 2009 128i non-sport package model and im looking for some great ideas. I'm not too familiar with shopping for tires/wheels, I'm still learning. I'm in Las Vegas so I'm looking for some tires that perform well in the heat. If anyone knows of any that do, could you please reply or pm me please. Thanks in advance!!!

Finally I see some 17". I'm thinking to do 17x8.5 with 245 tires for my track setup and I asked someone who done 255 and he said it fits.
just saw your pictures, now I'm thinking 17x9....can you take a picture of how close from the wheel to the shock?? thanks

Stock suspension. Perfect fit, no rubbing. Ride is pretty smooth. Better than stock RFT's on 18's.

Charles was a great help on the tire sizing.
Love your setup man! Not usually a fan of red cars, but that looks sick.

Doing the same size and VMR's in gunmetal on my black 135i in the next week or so...ill throw up pictures

miss my 2008 135i

Traded it in for a 335is, which I really like, but miss the loveable mutt styling of my gray 135. Performance not that different from my IS; I think the IS puts its power down a little bit better, no wheel hop.

This was is my winter set up. Still have it. Thinking I'll get my daughter a 128 when she starts driving and put these on it.

Wheels: Volk Racing RE30

Front and Rear: 18" x 8.5" (not sure of offset, but cleared those big front calipers easily)
Spacer: none

Tires:
Front and Rear: Pirelli Sottozeros (whatever TireRack said to get)

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber: None

Notes: Square set up made car look less butch from behind, but filled front wells nicely with no rubbing. Turn-in was a little better than stock staggered set up. Never measured, but lighter weight made care feel more lively and handle bumps better, even with run flat winter tires. Never missed work because of snow, even when NYC decided not to plow side streets.

BBS RS-GT

Here's mine just fitted today

Wheels setting:
18x8.5 ET 38
18x9 ET 45

Tyres setting:
Michelin PS3 225/40 (F) 255/35 (R)

No aftermarket suspension mods, car came with M Package & sports suspension. No rubbing issues surprisingly. However, the front does stick out a little bit...Any suggestions for improvement most welcomed!

I'm thinking of the same thing. After looking at all the posts, there is exactly 1 that has it without rubbing.
