I've looked through over 30 pages of this thread and can't seem to find the information I'm looking for. I would like to run a 255/35/18 tire on a 8.5" wheel with an et45 on the rear. I'm also considering a 235/40/18 tire on the same wheel for the front. I'm concerned with rubbing in the front or possible suspension clearance. I'm on stock msport suspension and don't plan to lower anytime soon. Any and all thoughts are appreicated

For the front, I used to have 235/40/18 a 8.5" wheel with an et44 offset, stock fender and all, so you will have no problem.

For the rear, I have 255/35/18 tire on a 8.5" wheel with an et50 and it's fine.
I used to have 235/40/18 a 8.5" wheel with an et39 offset and all I get is a very minor surface rub on tyre's side wall against inside of fender at max compression, which means it runs fine. Not sure if that helps.

Anyone running 18x8 square with 245/35?

I tried a search but it pulls up both 18x8 and 18x8.5.

TR Motorsports FF10 17x8 ET40
Riken Raptor 245/40ZR

Stock suspension with Koni yellows adjusted at halfway setting. rides great no rubbing and the light wheels really seem to make a difference. I really like the way it turns with this setup.

thanks to the previous posters here on square setups - very helpful!

Anyone running 8.5/9.5 Apex EC-7s with the BMW PS and M3 front control arms?
Do they fit without modification?
Hoping for 235/265 MPSS or MP4S, but can live with 225/255.

Apex Aero-7

I just got my Apex Aero-7 put on my car. I got them at Apex's black Friday blem sale.

Front - 18x8" et45
Rear - 18x9" et50

Stock sport suspension

MPSS 225/40/18 & 245/35/18

Looks like I have plenty of room for more tire in the rear so I will try 265/35/18 in the rear when I need new tires.

VMR VB3, 18x8.5 +35, 18x9.5 +45 (going to test fit 5mm spacer on rear).

Stock M-Teh suspension, stock tyres stretched. Looking to get new tyres soon, and eventually give it a slight drop.

Sorry the large photo size, will try and resize from another machine tomorrow.

roll fenders
add negative camber
swap to smaller tires
shave backpad (don't do this)
get a set of wheels with higher offset that fit

i'd go with putting negative camber on the rear if you're not bothered by the uneven tire wear. i'm not sure about your car, but mine can go way negative, to the tune of 3-4 degrees of negative camber on H&R supersports i'd say? i had a hair under 3 just by lowering it anyhow.
