Garage List
Looking to get new wheels to switch back and forth from my stock wheels. Anyway, will the wheels fit considering the information below?

Front: 18x8 et 47 on 225/40 tires (could I go wider?)
Rear: 18x8.5 et 50 on 245/35 OR 255/35 tires

OR

Square: 18x8 et 47 on same tire setup as above. If I can pull off 245/35 square, that would be best.

This is all assuming that I'm on stock suspension, M3 control arms and a Dinan camber plate. I don't want to run spacers or roll my fenders

Thanks

Two setups for my '12 135i

I bought my car used in '16 with about 52,000 km on it. (32,000 mi.)
Dealer had "refurbished" it with all new brakes (rotors and pads) and all new RFT tires. I don't know when it got the black wheels but they looked pretty new also. Sizes are stock 135i for all. According to VIN lookup this car has M Sport suspension and it seems to sit fairly low. The ride is quite firm on the crappy roads here in Ontario. I recently bought an alternate set of rims and tires off kijiji for a bargain price. They are in excellent shape after I spent a couple hours cleaning them. Car is stone Stock as built.

SETUP 1 as purchased from dealer:
Maybe style 397 black 18" wheels
Fr: 7 1/2" x 18 ET 49
Rr: 8 1/2" x 18 ET52
Tires
Bridgestone Potenza RE 050A RFT
Fr: 215 x 40 x 18
Rr: 245 x 35 x 18

SETUP 2 purchased last week (used but very nice)
Wheels Style 286 from an E90 (pre '13 3 series)
Fr: 7 1/2" x 17 ET 34
Rr: 8 1/2" x 17 ET 39
Tires
Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ with lots of tread made in 2015
Fr: 225 x 45 x 17
Rr: 255 x 40 x 17

No spacers or other mods
These setup 2 tires have almost exactly same diameter as setup 1 at 636 or 637 mm (25.1")
Initial testing, just cruising around the 'hood indicates no rubbing or interference. Main concern is whether outside edge of tire will rub on fender.
Inside edges of tires are well clear of struts and clear the Brembo brake calipers no problem. I am somewhat surprised and will update if any problems encountered.

Sorry about that!

I don't know why pics posted upside down!
Stand on your head to view them I guess.
Car currently has 64 K km on it, 39,700 mi.

I'm not sure I've posted in this thread, but I'm still working on making my Apex Wheels fit.

I'm running their recommended staggered setup and tire size. 18 x 8.5 +45 and 18 x 9.5 +58.

I'm running NittoNT05 235s in the front and 265s in the back. I am also running a 10mm spacer in the rear, which I know is a rubbing issue.

I rub the plastic connection between the front bumper and fender right now over bumps and I rub the fender liner in the back over bumps.
