Just had my 08 135i lowered on AP coilovers (not overly stiff)

Running a 245/40/18 on the OEM 8.5+52 wheels

Had 18mm spacers which rubbed quite a bit, before I change to some thinner spacers would going to a shorter tyre (245/35) provide any extra clearance?

Front should be ok, but rears will likely rub occasionally on the fender lip. Offset really needs to be ET50 or higher, or you could do the E90 rear hub conversion.

I ran et42/45 F/R with 255/35-18 with no issues and Bmwp springs. Not sure on the et40.

Fits great, no rubs except going over railroads and into parking lots. I think it's just where the fender bolts into the front bumper

No way, always wanted to know if these would fit on a 1 series. Any more photos?

They're replicas of style 351M - notice the lip.

Not sure if anyone has tried fitting style 189 wheels off a 3series but they fit albeit snug.
I use them as my winter setup.

Hi guys, have skim read over the past few weeks what I believe is pretty much every post in this thread. It's quite addictive!

Looking to go:

18x8.5 +35, 18x9.5 +33
225/40/R18, 245/35/R18

Not planning to slam it overly low... maybe just H&R/Eibach springs if I can find the right set.

From what I've read in this thread and others across this site, front should be OK. Will the rears require anything more than a bit of a roll?

No pulling, cutting, camber work?

No chance a 9.5 rear wheel with an offset of 33 will fit without significant fender work.

Yeah this is what makes it so tricky. On this thread alone there's at least a few examples of people running even more aggresive 9.5 offset's than that, and saying nothing more than a roll?

I'm guessing how much it's lowered has a huge part to do with it?

Do the 328i rear hub conversion and you should be able to fit the rears with a bit aggressive fender work
