Hey guys, I am looking to put style 269, 19 inch OEM rims with OEM P zero run flats on my stock 135i.
wheel and tire specs are: 225/35/19, ET37 in the front and 255/30/19, ET39 for the rear.
will they fit if I don't do any mod or fender work?

I would be willing to bet you would rub on the rear with those tires and offset. It might not always rub but over large dips and with a heavy load (ie: people, luggage) it will rub. I suspect it would be the outside of the fender well. Below 40 offset is pushing it with no fender modification.

Thanks man.
was hoping that it will run on smooth roads.
it's not my DD anymore, so I think I might take the chance and try it.
if they rub, do you think using slightly narrower tires would help a bit or its the rims that are sticking out?

A stretched tire will most definitely help. If it's not your daily driver then by all means take that swing. Post pics when you get them slapped on there.

I would roll fenders/lips before I sold my wheels. I think the OEM+ look is different and clean.

ya, for sure.
I would only let them go if they rub so bad that even rolling the fender can't even help much.

One question. It rubs/rubbed on the inside or outside of the rear?

@ Matt@EuroJerks,

It rubbed on the outside of the rear tire only while the fender liner was misplaced. Once I popped the fender liner back in to where it is meant to be, everything has been fine. I have had two adults in the back and gone through some heavier compression's and haven't heard a thing. I have debated if I can fit a Michelin Pilot Supersport of the same size on the rear but am not sure it will clear as its tread width is .9" wider. Just a part of the multitude of decisions that led to the result.

I run exactly that on my 128i with 235-40-18 Continental ECS.

You will need a fair bit of camber, but on my car it fits flawlessly with no rubbing.

Thanks! They are not coated as VMR produced them. They have been refinished with the goal of matching the finish of the silver window trim. I did that for the sake of aesthetic continuity through limiting the number of different colors on the car.

Check out the following two links. They are for a UF51 VIN for a E87 120i.
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/part...BMW-120i&mg=36
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=36_0834

Using the first link, you can find you wheels to confirm wheel sizes if necessary. Using the second link, you can find the recommended tire sizes. Note that there are a few options for 18's intended for a front wheel that vary by tire manufacturer. The rears only have one size option.
