Depending on what size tire you use in the front it may rub against the strut tube. A tire like a wider 265/35/18 Hankook RS3 or Dunlop Star Spec may graze the strut tube requiring the use of a 3-5mm spacer. Our front wheel that we usually recommend is an 18x9.5" ET22 which has much more clearance against the strut. The rear size is a great fitment and a 285/35/18 tire should fit really nicely with that wheel.

Thx joe, for the input, i am thinking of putting 245/40/18 255/40/18. Or 255/35/18 265/35/18 to avoid using any spacer in front. What you think?? 285/35/18 also considerable.

Those staggered tire sizes should fit the front without the use of a spacer but will have sidewall stretch over the 9.5" and 10" wide wheels. A better fitting tire set up would be either 255/35/18 and 275/35/18 or 265/35/18 and 285/35/18. The second option may need a small 3-5mm front spacer depending on which type of tire you end up using.

If you are not experiencing any rubbing issues than that is a good thing and I would not worry about it from here on. Glad I could help you find the right tire sizes for your 1M!

Thx for advice joe.. Just come back from local tyre shop done wheel allignment for the M. They confirm it wont rub the shock tube in anyway. I assume probably because of the tyres that i use are a bit round on the edge?? Just my assumption. Cmiiw.

Real nice, and I love the golden colour of these. It reminds me of fast Subarus and the fabulous Clio Williams ...
