Offset is too low unfortunately. Unless if you want to run stretched tyres and pumped guards

Thanks for the advice - shame they're cheap too but I'm not that keen on guard manipulation as yet...

Hi all! I have a set of 18x8,5" ET48. Do you think they will fit my E87 130i with M-chassie? I'm a bit worried it's too wide/hight ET in the front?

Yeah will be fine. I had 18x8.5 ET35 previously and no rub.
Only now that i've gone 18x9 ET35 is it rubbing a tiny bit.

Thanks, it's the inner side I'm worried about though. Guess I just have to try

I had 18x8.5 et42 on the front of my old 130i. There was 1-2mm clearance to the strut with 245/35/18 tyres

How was the clearance between rim and strut? My 8.5" ET48 gives me 6mm less room towards the struts than your wheels :/

hmm let me try to find some photos. maybe it was without the 10mm spacer that gave 1-2mm gap (ie et52). this was 1.5 years ago now so my memory is probably incorrect lol

Just an update on my new rims:

AC Schnitzer Type III.
18x8.5" ET43 square set up.
Bridgestone RE003 235/40/18 tyres.
F: 3mm spacer to add strut clearance (around 1-2mm clearance without spacer), effective ET40
R: 10mm spacer, effective ET33

Stock suspension except M3 LCAs and camber pin mod to front.

No rubbing
