Crazy Wheel & Tire setup…?

Hello,

I’m new to the forum so 1st allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mauricio I just bought a 2009 135i M sport. Love the car, amazing & a joy to drive .

I’m a bit of a wheel whore and wanted to get some feedback on an idea I have.

So, I’m looking to run a squared set up 18x9.5 +40 with a 15mm adapter due to the wheels being a 5x114.

Just wondering will this work or am I crazy ....? Was thinking of running 235-35-18 & 245-35-18 not sure yet....? It goes without saying I’ll lower the car on Coils.

What do you guys think, ...? Would love some input from the hellaflush wheel guys.

I had a feeling it would be way to crazy. I guess the rear would be ok, and run an 8.5 up front?

8.5" up front with a 40mm offset is fine, its just the 15mm adapter that is going to be the issue. You would have to run something like a 205 tire in order to not rub, and even then, it would be close. A lot of people cant fit more than a 225 wide tire without major camber (2.5*+) or a solid fender roll.

The "Perfect" offsets/widths for these cars is as follows:
Front: 8.5 wide with a 45mm offset
Rear: 9.5 wide with a 59mm offset

You "could" go with an e9X set of wheels, but the required fender work and lack of usable rubber just makes it look retarded IMO.

There is a 1er with E9X wheel offsets on it. No mention of tire size or fender work, but i would imagine its more than its worth. Sell the Evo/STI wheels and buy a proper fitted wheel setup.
