Need Tire Size Help Please (135i w/Aftermarket Wheels)

I have a 2011 135i.

I just ordered a set of 18x8.5 + 18x9.5 wheels (MM6's) from **********s. Alan (from **********s) promised that they would fit without fender pulling, etc.

I also am about to order KW V1's, but only lower the car 1.25" or so, so nothing extreme.

Given the above parameters, can I run 275 width tires in back? If so, what size fronts should I pair with them? Moreover, what overall size 275's do I need to run?

Thanks in advance.

No way will the 275's fit on that wheel stock and even more so lowered. Only wheels you will get 275's on without problems is Apex.

The safe sizes for you to run will be 225 upfront and 255 in the rear.

To give you a better answer you should link us the rims that contain the offsets.

What is the of set of the rear wheels. For 275 you kind of need somewhere around +62.

My rear are 18x8.5, +48. They are also sending me 3mm spacers complimentary .

So I guess 255 is the way to go.
