I'll try to take some more. But you can't go wrong with either...19s or 18s suit the look of the car. 18s will ride smoother given you get more sidewall on the tire.

Actually, it's a square ET45 setup with a 3mm spacer on the front, so the rear is ET45 and the front is an ET42 (45-3), not ET39 (42-3, which seems to be how you interpreted it).

Finally got them on, was only able to take a quick iPhone picture, the winters make it look a little boaty with how high profile they are but oh well... Also going to have to replace that ugly center cap with a nice BMW one

EDIT: Finally switched the caps and she's looking gorgeous

Looks good but how'd you get this to fit? Style 197 are

3er E90+ 8x18 ET 34
3er E90+ 8.5x18 ET 37

I'd expect it to rub stock. Doubt a 225/255 set up would work.

Thanks. Didn't do anything special just camber and stock tire sizes. I think larger would probably rub.

Only have a pic of the rear as I myself was curious about the fitment of a 255 on an 8" wheel, worked out well..

Well this is what I'm going to do, just to see if it will work.

A little background, I ran a square 235/40r18 setup of Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2's with the same basic suspension setup and 18x8 et 40 wheels. The only difference was that I used H&R Sport Springs that came as a kit with the Konis and never had any rubbing or poke issues over 15k miles and 10-12 autocross days.

Square set up:
Tires: 265/40-18 Hankook Ventus R-S3 Version 2 (V222)
Wheels: Alzor Style 020-10 18x9 ET42

Suspension:
Koni Yellows
BMW OE Non-Sport Springs (BMW 128i Vert)
M3 (TRW) Front Control Arms (Tension & Wishbone)
Dinan Fixed Camber Plates

5mm Spacers if needed (I think there will be rubbing in the inner front).
There will be poke in front but not sure about fender rub.

I get the wonder(fully) cheap ECS Tuning housebrand wheels this week and will mount them with the R-S3's ASAP.

Ok, so I've been looking for wheels for a while now. I'm interested in running a 225 and an 8.5 to 9 inch up front and a 255 and 9.5-10 inch out back. I'm struggling with figuring out the best offsets to run as a balance between "the look" and not having any issues. I have a 2011 128 sport pack. I got the car used, it looks like it has had the fenders rolled and might be on lowering springs. haven't been able to get under it to have a look.

At any rate what kind of offset should i be looking for with what size wheel, the best I'm coming up with is 18x8.5 et35-45 and 18x9.5 et45-60. Does a 18x9 et40 fit with a 225 up front? what about a 18x10 et55 out back with a 255? any info would be incredibly helpful.

Many Thanks.
Derek

I'm pretty skeptical on whether this setup is going to be usable for a couple reasons
1. Several people have already documented fitting 255/35-18 and 255/40-17 on 9" square wheels and that is supposedly the maximum that can be fitted
2. The aforementioned setups required adjustable camber plates (~-3 deg) and fender modifications for optimized stack height and fender/spring perch/strut tube clearance, even then, it is very close
3. In contrast, you have an even wider and taller tire, and less possible camber (I was maxed out at -2.2 with dinan plates, not sure if M3 arms are a viable camber adder in the way they change geometry). Also, I don't know where the spring is on the setup you have, though you want the shortest spring possible for maximum width tire, especially for one as square as an RS3.

I'd love for you to put my concerns to ease but everything known about the given working setups really don't work in your favor

I appreciate the feedback and I'll let you know tomorrow as I will have them mounted and balanced--I very much have my doubts too. I actually swapped the H&R Sport springs for the original springs which adds about 2 inchs of wheel well height back. I assumed this would be better for clearing the fenders with the R-S3's?!?

Pre-install pics of wheels attached to front passenger side-no spacer. Obviosuly I'll need a spacer to clear the strut tube---the caliper is real close too (w/335i conversion in front). Wheels weigh 22.6 lbs a piece.

Fingers crossed for ya, looks like your shock tubes are smaller even the thinnest coilovers (thinner than my koni based TCKs), and the spring seat is pretty high up.

Well fender liner rubbing and severe front spring perch rubbing with 5mm spacers. Time for bigger spacers (after it stops snowing).

The rears appear to be just fine but time to put the snow tires on it.

I have my eye on a set of wheels 18x9+38 18x10+40. any thoughts on fitting these on a 128 sport pack? the plan is to run a 225 and a 255 but i wouldn't be to upset about switching to a 215 and a 245 if there is cause for it. From what i have read though this post they should fit under the car without touching the fenders or the struts but I'm not sure if the rubber will hit the fenders or not.

Note, these are 3 piece wheels and i could tweak the backspacing and size if i had to.
Thanks
Derek

I read through this whole thread looking for exactly that info, and it was on the last page. Thanks for trying, I can't wait to be square. 235 seems the widest for the front on a 40et without modifications, but, 245 would be better all around. I'm really surprised this car doesn't have the room.
