Sportline 8s - best fitting/weight csl rep?

I'm looking for a new set of CSL reps to replace my Alufelgen CS7's as two are bent.

I've looked at VMR, ARC, avantgard, and sportline.

So far it looks like the sportline 8s has the best combination of concavity, weight, offset options, and manufacturing method.

If I go with 18x8.5 ET 45 front, and 18x9.5 ET45 rear, is this likely to fit a stock or slightly lowered car without spacers, rubbing, or fender modifications?

Thanks for any advice or recommendations!

Thank you! Do you think 225s front and 255s rear would fit or too wide?

Have the Alufelgens straightened man. Guy out of a van fixes my Alufelgens every year or two.

Fronts should be alright, rears will be close. Might rub a bit on big bumps

The ET45 front with the 225 tire will be just fine. The ET45 rear with the 255 may require a little added camber and/or fender massaging. A 245 tire will fit on the rear with no modification.

We will be receiving V703s in 8.5 ET45 and 9.5 ET45 within the next month or so! The ET45 front is a fitment that we have not offered on this wheel in the past, so we're excited to bring this to our 1 Series customers!

This picture should give you an idea of the look. This car looks to be running our previous ET40 front.
