Work Varianza Schwert SC1 18" Deep Lips

Front: 18" x 8.5 ET 40
Rear: 18" x 9.5 ET 48

Front: General UHP 225/40/18
Rear: General UHP 255/35/18

Very slight rub in the rear, set the rear camber to -2 and pretty much no rub after. No fender rolling is required front and rear, but again, i normally only seat 1 in the car and max 2...

Finally, the best election to reduce the understeer probably is

equally between the wheels or the most similar. without having to cut

-225/35/18 in 4 wheels

-245/35/18 in 4 wheels

-235/35/18 front and 255/35/18 rear

-any ideas?

For me, the solution is:
- 225/40/18 Front and 255/35/18 rear (Bridgestone RE11);
- Camber plates Vorshlag setting -2° front;
- Camber -2° rear;
- Sway bars H&R front and rear;
- Bilstein PSS10 (setting in 7 for street; 8-10 on the track).

With that, understeering almost nothing. Front feeling is very very good!
I do street and track days. I'm satisfacted with my 135i now!

Swapped on my old star-spoke style 119 OEM rims (17x8 et47) with 225/45/17 Blizzak LM-25 RFTs. I previously had this winter setup on my '04 330ci and was worried the front offset might be too high, but they fit fine (thanks to Gill for his insight).

Just drove 1000 miles from NH to WI without incident. Nothing flashy (looks a bit like the stock 128i), but I'm glad I didn't have to buy an all-new winter package.

^ Sweet Wheels/ set-up. Can you please include a pic from the low rear showing both tires/stance of the car? Do the rears protrude from the fenders? It looks like they stick out so I'm not sure if it's just the camera angle.

Haha... No sticking out from fender, it is just because of the image distortion at the edge of 28mm lenses.

As you can see, the rear wheel is less protruding than the front, and the front is nicely lining up with the fender.

Indeed Advan RZ for 1er's setting is not that aggressive, it is just a few mm protruding compared to original 18" BMW wheels. They look aggressive because of the concaved disk face, in my opinion.

Wheels:
VMR V701 19 x 8.5 ET45 front and 19 x 9.5 ET45 rear

Tires:
Falken FK452 235/35/19 front and 255/35/19 rear

Suspension:
H&R Sport Springs and stock shocks
Koni Yellow Shocks (added after 3 months)

Fender Mods
Rolled all 4 corners

Conclusion:
Ride is much more "airy" than stock. With stock I felt the road more, which I liked. This airy feeling I'm not used to, kinda like driving a Toyota Camry, but probably because of my 19". The ride height didn't change much, even though it's lowered on the H&R springs again due to the 19". Most importantly though this setup rubs in the front due the the ULTRA flushness, I will have to roll the fenders for sure, if I went 225 up front, then I would be fine. I might have to cut that plastic tab in the front a little too since I think that's what's bothering the wheel the most. Also in the rear I might have to do some minimal work since on big bumps my wheels will hit the liner.

Otherwise I am happy with this setup and will get my fenders rolled in the front for more clearance up front, I would bet that after the roll I will be rub free. I wanted 235s up front cause I did not want the tire to look stretched and was going for a JDM look.

In regards to the springs. They are much stiffer than the stock springs however the non-runflats are balancing them out. I would suspect that I would know when my tires pressure is low as the ride will for sure become stiffer then. On a good note, body roll is drastically decreased with these stiffer springs.

1.5 Months After Thoughts:
I don't suggest this setup to anyone. Only to people who are willing to push the limits. All for of my corners rubbed. To be clear... The front rubbed on slight dips with only myself in the car so I had to do a roll and cut the plastic tab down. That solved the problem in front unless I hit a huge unknown/unseen dip. That's when I'm screwed. The rears do not rub with only myself in the car unless its a really bumpy road and I'm going highway speed. The rears will rub with 3 people in the car on turns. I will get a minor roll in the rear and I should be fine. No cutting required. No negative chamber calculations.

3 Months After Thoughts:
I had all 4 of my fenders rolled. Now I don't rub anymore unless I have full load in my car but that's expected. I rarely drive with people in my car anyway. I will still rub on hard dips, but in high speeds I do not rub anymore since I've added Koni yellows on medium setting. I still get a little bouncy sometimes, but it's not bad. I guess I might have to mess with the rear settings a little, but even without messing with it, I'm fine with it. The Yellows are way better than the stock shocks with H&R springs. There is rebound finally!
Hope this helps everyone!

Had 261m 18" offset 49 front 47 back with Bridgestone Potenza RFT R50a on the car and exchanged them for 17"x8 offset40 OZ Ultraleggera matt black + 225x17x45 Michelin Pilot sport PS2 in front and 245x17x40 in the back in order to acquire a softer ride on my country's roads filled with pots.
Objective achieved ride is way smoother and traction improved immensely since now the car doesn't jump all over when confronted with a rougher road , traction control also is less present in the wet since i seem to have way better grip so i would recommend this setup .Btw no rub front of back due to different offsets and tire size and black whells look cool on a red car

A little bit of rub up front but not really on bumps more when the road gets wavey? (Lack of a better word to describe)

I wanted to wash the car a bit first but its raining and despite what everyone watching the Olympics thinks it rains alot here, so a quick hose off will have to do. People around here already look at me funny because I wash the car so much, If I did it in the pouring rain...

Not yet, just got them Friday.
I had let my brother take my camera down to the Olympics, so these pics were off my old crap camera.
As soon as I get the good one back and it stops raining for 10 mins I'll snap some more
