can you fit 255/35/18s in these rims ?



These are the rims I have in my 135i 2011. Original tires are 245/35/18 w/ 15mm spacers @ rear.

Would it be possible to put 255/35/18s @ the rear without mods ?
I plan to use Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

Thanks for the advice.

if you use the 245/35/18s michelin pilots will this be an issue on the stock rims & use the 15mm spacers ?

I'm running Bmw 264 rims with 225/255(RE760 potenza's non runflat) and no issues. I have bmw performance suspension. I had 18x8.5/9.5 rims and no issues with same tire setup. Stock rims could easily run a 10mm spacer. 15mm might be pushing it.

So far I've tried an alignment, that didn't work. The only thing left to do is to roll my fenders but I can't find anyone around where I live that does that and I don't want to spend $250 on a fender rolling tool.

I'm going to run 225 / 255 but using the Bridgestone S-04 instead of the Michelin Pilot Sports. The Bridgestons are narrower profile, that way i wont have any issues.

I'm running that size on my 135i. Many guys run the 225/255 setup just fine.

Had this setup for a few months now, no sign of rubbing what-so-ever. Perfect fitment! And I've had my car loaded down with adults many times, still no issues.
