^^ Sir you are in bad need of a wider tire in the rear, I mean look how stretched it is even on a 9" wide wheel? No reason you cant run atleast a 255 in the back

Hi,

Would anyone know if a BMW style 157 wheel from a 3 series (17 X 8 I think) will fit a 2008 128i coupe with no sport package? I have been unable to get a definitive answer about this. Thanks in advance.

Ed

After reading through the whole thread I feel like this question is silly but any chance 18x9 et 40 will fit up front? Came across a nice set of rims for cheap, square setup with 18x9 et 40 all the way around.

Alot of pages to go through here. I did a search, but didn't see these exact numbers, so I'm reposting this from another thread for anyone who searches for this in the future.

Wheels: Stock 18"
Tires: Continental ExtremeContact DWS 235/35/18 all around

Tirerack had special pricing on that size only for the Continental DSWs last week, so I took a chance I could make them fit and ordered a set to get me through the winter.

The fronts were a real bitch to mount on the wheels with the equipment I have, but after about an hour of fighting it, I finally got the first one on. The other side only took me 15 mins or so since I then knew the trick. I don't have pics handy, but they actually don't even appear to bulge much at the front (nor do they stretch in the rear). They all look pretty damned straight up-and-down at all 4 corners. If anyone really cares and wants pics, just let me know.

I'm interested in the same set up. Detailed pics and front tire clearances would be appreciated.

Load raing is a bit lite?

Sorry for the delay. The system is not emailing me with new posts like I requested. I'll get pics ASAP for you. I have had zero rubbing anywhere so far.

As for the load, it is rated 86. I can't say I am an expert, but that equates to 1168 lbs. So, theoretically, enough for a 4400+lb car?

And they are Y rated for speed, so more than enough there, too.

Will this setup work:

F 18x8.5 +30
R 18x10 +35

Stock 135i M suspension?

I don't want any rubbing and don't want to have to roll fenders or cut plastic.

Awesome, How about the front and rear tire looking from the rear down the side. Anyway, sounds good.

What is your tire change set up, I'm looking to get a manual setup for my garage and a motorcycle wheel type balancer.

A few years back, I found one on Ebay being sold by a shop that was going out of business near Philly. I believe the brand is Atlas, and it looks pretty much like this one:


IIRC, I paid $550 for it (about $1500 new), and it was barely used. It has MORE than paid for itself by now. I have changed more than 50 tires with it so far.

For balancing, I just use an old-school bubble balancer. I've had better results with that than the electronic balancers. Plus, it takes up very little space in my garage. Not to mention it was free; a leftover from when my father had his own shop.

Oh, even found an image of my exact one:

Garage List
Wheels: no idea

Front: 8" / ET38
Spacer: none

Rear: 9" / ET38
Spacer: none

Tires:
Front: Continental SportContact 3 / 225 / 18"
Rear: Continental SportContact 3 / 245 / 18"

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber: none

Notes:

Perfect except for one very sharp dip where I get a slight rub @ the rear. SC3's have a rounded shoulder which helps. 255's on Hankook's V12's rubbed a lot worse (both width & squarer shoulder). Currently rear tyres extend ~2-3mm from fender, front tyres flush. Sorry no pics from side angles

Looking @ OZ Alleggerita 18" ET40 F / ET40 R as next purchase. Lighter, stronger, better quality finish. Will keep same tyre combo as I have now.
