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 et45 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
