Guys, thinking to get arc 8 on my stock suspension 135i. Should I do fender roll to run 235F and 265R? How about the inner clearance? Any other thing should I do to fit those wheels and tires? By the way, planning to go with Michelin PSS

^ You will be just fine. Nothing to worry about. Add a 3mm spacer to the fronts for 100% guarantee that you'll clear the spring/strut from your tires inside (inside clearance)

Sounds good bro. So I don't have to worry unless I'm doing mods on my suspension or lower my car right? How about camber?

With the OEM suspension and our 1-series specific ARC-8 wheels, you would be able to use the 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 Michelin PSS without any issues as long as your alignment specifications are with OEM specifications.

There might be slight rubbing on bumps for the first couple of miles on the stock set up

This car needs no explanation. It is a track-worthy example of the 135i complete with a StopTech 355mm 6-piston BBK, GC Coilovers, and APEX ARC-8's wrapped in Hoosiers.

Lookin good!

Think you could fit one size wider front or rear with that setup? Is that a 245/35 or 245/40?

I will post pics of my space grey 135 convert with ARC8's in hyper silver and kw's, m3 bits, and dinan plates when I complete the install.

245/35 which does not rub in any situation. A 255 will be a squeeze for sure. Only one way to know.

My Silver EC-7s. They look fantastic, but I'm getting a small rub up front over big bumps. Need to figure out what to do about it.
