Hmm, those are the stock tire sizes on 1" wider wheels. Will that be stretching the tire a bit? I think **********s was recommending 225/255.

215width on 8.5" is pretty stretched, but what's done is done.

Yes I did that on purpose. They are not as stretched as you might think. It looks great.

I did for a couple reasons;

-The offsets are pretty agressive for the E82 so I wanted to avoid any rubbing; I plan to lower it a lot
-I did not want to change the profile of the tire or overall diameter to throw of the speedo

Come to think the stock 135 runflats on stock wheels have a rounded shoulder profile very similar to your pic.

Went to the Yoko website and the 8.5/9.5 wheels are within the width parameters listed for the stock tire sizes.

Hey guys, I got them from EAS. They mounted and balance and put in the TPMS sensors in there. They are ready to mount upon arrival. http://www.europeanautosource.com/

Pricing was pretty good.

This looks really good to me and I might want a similar setup for my car. I have a few questions though for anyone in the know. Is this offset going to fit nicely? I'm not sure how the offset changes when you get to wider rims. Also, if I'm not planning on dropping the car any, will the recommended tire sizes be optimal?

I am contemplating buying these wheels in Gunmetal for my wife's AW 135i. I would like to see how they look on the car first. Please post pictures once they are on. Can you at least post some pictures so we can see how much or not the tire is stretched. This will at least hold us over until we see them on the car. Thanks.
