Wheels: Dotz Mugello

Front: 18x8" (can't remember offset...)
Spacer: none

Rear: 18x9" offset 35
Spacer: none

Tires:
Front Bridgestone Potenza RE050 225/40
Rear Bridgestone Potenza RE050 225/40

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber:

none

Notes:

Tried with 255's at back and they rubbed. Heard even 245's rub with these rims so I changed to 225's at back too. Result: much less noise, and ride feels great now. Very agile and neutral handling, I can recommend all 225 setup except maybe for the 135i which might smoke them .
Lookswise I like the form of the spokes a lot but the chrome/black contrast is a bit too harsh for my liking (can't see it well from the pic but the inside of the rim and the sides of the spokes are black) ... maybe paint the center with body color and leave the lip shiny. Any suggestions?
Also, the BMW-centercaps make a huge difference I think

Garage List
2008 135i  [0.00]
Wheels: OZ Ultraleggera
Front: 18x8 +40
Spacer: none

Rear: 18x9 +40
Spacer: none

Tires:
Front: Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 225/40/18
Rear: Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 255/35/18

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber:
Car is running KW Variant 3's at the lowest setting in the rears, almost lowest setting at front (level on the street)

Had the rear fenders rolled a little when I got the wheels put on, no rolling on the front

Notes:
Rears rub on medium to large bumps at speed, also while in sweeping corners at high speed the rears rub. I can get the fronts to rub a tad if I brake hard while turning (stupid idea but I did it to test).

Going to try raising my KW's a little. If that doesn't stop the rubbing, I'm going to have to roll the rears out more, and roll the fronts as well.

KW V2, rolled and shaved rears....LOTS OF WORK, I don't recommend going with this aggressive of a rear unless you are willing to do lots of work and still rub. I'm running about 2.5 degrees of camber on the rears...

Notes:
Still rubs in the rear over certain bumps, fronts rub slightly because of height.

Garage List
Forgeline ZX3P wheels (white outer lip, satin black center)
-19x8.5 +45mm offset - 225/35/19 Goodyear F1 Asymmetric
-19x9.5 +50mm offset - 255/30/19 Goodyear F1 Asymmetric

Stock springs --- no rubbing anywhere. I'll update when I get the suspension on, but I'm crossing my fingers that I won't have to roll the fenders. I should note that these offsets are a bit different than what is on Turner's 128i.

Nice Justin! I'm pretty sure you'll have to do a little fender work if you lower, even with good offsets like that, but maybe I'll be wrong.

His fronts should be fine, but I agree with you. I imagine the rear would need a bit of work. et+55 would of been awesome
