What size azenis rt-615s will fit the 128i?

I have the stock m sport wheels but will in all likelyhood be replacing them with something lighter. Will any of the azenis rt-615s fit? If not can anyone suggest a similar supper stiff sidewall super sticky tire that I can drive on the street and the track as long as it isn't through standing water?

You could run a 225/40/18 square setup and have a nice balanced setup. They look like exactly what you're looking for honestly.

Whichever one has the better offset. Might as well go square wheels to allow 4wheel rotate.

It is 45 for the narrower ones and 48 for the wider ones. I want to use the same size front and back. I have no desire to make a car prone to oversteer to oversteer more.

18x8.5 ET48 should work well on all 4 corners. You could easily run a slightly wider tire though, 235/40/18 would work well and provide good balance.

Thanks. Would I have to roll the fenders at all with 236/40/18?

Not likely. If at all, it would be the front and pulling the alignment pin in the front should make you clear anything that you might very lightly rub.

Thanks b1aze, this place is great. Those tires totally transformed the last few cars I had and the 128i is already so great.
