I'll try and grab a picture today. I'm running 17x9 ET42 all the way around with E9x rear hubs and E9x 335 brakes. Fit is perfect and it looks awesome.

That’d be great, thanks. I’ve read the hub swap thread and am tempted!

What’s your tyre spec and front suspension setup?

Happy to help! For a 17" wheels on your 1 series, we would recommend going with our 17x8.5" ET40 paired with 235/40-17 tires. Depending on your ride height, and tire brand/compound, a touch of negative camber may be necessary. 245/40-17 tires can fit as well, but will require approximately -1.5 degrees or more of front camber. Rear rolled fenders and/or rear negative camber may also be required.

You can also run a 17x9" ET42, but that is quite an aggressive fitment and will require heavier modifications. Most individuals running this setup are looking to maximize their sidewall support when running 245/40-17 tires. This setup may require a spacer up front depending on what suspension you have and along with negative front camber. The rear will be very aggressive, requiring a heavy fender roll and negative rear camber. The E90 hub conversion is a great option to gain clearance in the rear however.

We would recommend going with the 17x8.5" ET40 if you're looking for the easiest fit. Check out the photo below of a 1 series race car running the 17x8.5" ET40 fitment all around.
