The following is results of prototype wheel test fitments. I'll be trying many different configurations so I'll post those up as well.

Wheels: APEX ARC-8

Front: 18x9" et42
Spacer: none

Rear: 18x9.5" et62
Spacer: none

Front Nitto NT-05 245/40/18
Rear Nitto NT-05 265/35/18

Suspension/Fender Mods/Camber: 100% stock 135i


zero issues in the back. the tire is close to the inner noise dampening mat, but not touching. looks like there is room for a 275/35/18. I will test that out, and on a lowered car as well. This is the only wheel that allows for this much rubber in the rear, and it weights in around 18lbs~.

The front was purely an experiment to provide the forum data. the tire is 0.5-1mm away from the strut tube. This would need a 3mm spacer for me to feel comfortable when actually driving around. rubbing did not need to be tested as it was clear on a stock car this would not work. with camber plates and around 3 degrees negative camber this wheel would work.

The intended wheel for the front is an 18x8.5" et38, which will be tested this week.
