Garage List
2009 135i  [4.00]
Montego Metallic Blue with TSW Cadwells

Wheels: TSW Cadwell

Front: 18x8 ET35

Rear: 18x9.5 ET45

Tires: Falken FK-452

Front: 215/35/18

Rear: 255/35/18

Mods:
I have mostly stock M-Sport suspension. I installed lowering springs and that's it. so it's 1 inch lower than stock.

Notes: On the stock suspension I rubbed once in the rear on a really big dip with 4 people in the car. with the lowering and 2 people in the car i have not rubbed yet.

i dont have alot of pics of showing how flush it is with the fender. i'll try to get more up here eventually. but here are a few. i love the look and couldn't be happier that i didn't need any work done to fit these. next time i'll go with 225 in the front and 265 in the rear. wanted to play it safe this time around. i think those sizes will fit.

A couple of shots of my new wheels, they went on the day after I picked up the car:

Front
Advan RZ 8" wheels
Yokohama Advan Sport 225/40/18

Rear
Advan RZ 9" wheels
Yokohama Advan Sport 255/35/18

No suspension mods yet, will probably go with KW V1s next month.

Really nice. Any issues on stock M-sport suspension, or think you could squeeze 265's?

No issues at all and there seems to be plenty of room for 265s. I haven't really had a good look yet to see how close they are to the suspension. I'm hoping all will be OK when the coilovers go on.

I think you can get away with 245 in the back. For the front just double check to make sure the size is as close to stock as possible.

4% variance according to that, I guess I'd have to go 245/30/19

19" Forgestar F-14's in Gunmetal

Here are my 19" Forgestar F-14's in Gunmetal on my Sapphire Black 135i wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports

Specs are: Stock M-Sport Suspension, fenders are NOT rolled (planning on KW coil-overs or H&R sport springs to lower 0.5"-1.0" if it wont rub) no spacers, no camber plates, no bs.

Offsets: I believe they are ET45(ish) front and ET48(ish) rear, but to be terribly honest, I have no idea. I let Forgestar figure this out...

Front: 19x8.5" 225/35/19
Rear: 19x9" 255/30/19

NO RUBBING WHAT-SO-EVER...I've had 4 people in the car total and have not rubbed...I live in downtown Boston so that was a pretty damn good test in my book. Anyone who lives here or in a major city can attest to that!

(disclaimer: I am not a photographer, I know they are not the best pictures...I can take more by request)

PS: could have gone 9.5" in the rear, Forgestar did not have the barrels in stock when I ordered and I am too impatient to wait an extra 4 months for .5". That being said I could probably fit 265/30/19 rears but would be risky...

My CAR HANDLES LIKE A DREAM!

I am currently running stock suspension with Michilen Pilot Super Sports

Front: Rear:
225/40/18 255/35/18
-2 deg & 0 toe -1 deg & .05 toe in

Alignment Suggestions From:
TopSpeedMotorSports Alpharetta, Ga

All I can say is wow! Never thought the car would feel this well on stock suspension with just tires. Truly worth the extra tread wear.

Yes, they fit perfect.

The shop that mounted my tires gave me some trouble saying they put one wheel on and that it was touching the inner fender guard, so they wouldnt put the wheels on the car. I told them that as soon as it got on the ground it would be fine. They are Germans so they wouldnt budge one bit.

Did it myself and once it was on the ground it was perfect. Im sure with a decent load of people or over big bumps it might rub a touch, but so far nothing.

I have Arc-8 18 x 9.5 rear with 275/35-18 Michelin PSS and use a 5mm spacer for a flush look. No rubbing, and it may solve your rubbing issue.

What size are you running up front? Fender camber mods?

Hey guys.
I am new to the car game (used to drive a 2008 F150 Larait)
I now drive a 2008 135i.
Lowered on H&R super sport lowering springs.
Rims on at the moment are the 261M painted black 18"

All I want to do is change the look of the rims. Not the size or the offsets or anything other then the style/look.
Id like to know all the specs I would need when buying rims for my car. Right now with the lowering springs I do not rub at all and I would like to keep it that way.
If anyone could help me out then thank you very much. PLEASE inbox me if you have any information that I could use.
Thanks guys

Im stock as well looking to do the same 225 and 255 with the Pilot SS, did you need the camber adjustments to fit those 255's or was the just preference?

240 on the rear

It might rub a tad, I had to roll my fenders slightly to fit the Michilen PSS 255/35/18's in the rear.

*title 255/40/18
