Wheel Specs For VMR V710's on 135i

Hey all! Looking for some help on wheel specs for my 135. The wheels I want are VMR V710's. It's on stock msport suspension and I'm looking to get some 18's with nice tires as well. I've been looking around but have yet to find a definitive answer on good wheel specs for this setup. Heard that 8.5 +45 front and 9.5 +50 rear works well with a 225/245 setup. I want flush fitment and not have to roll any fenders if this is possible. If any others have run these wheels please tell me your specs or any input you may have! All help is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,
Cam

You likely won't see any rub with that setup and will be pretty close to flush. (Roughtly 1.3mm in on the front and 3.3mm in on the rear.)

The ET45/ET50 setup is what we usually spec out for the 1 Series. The 225/245 setup will work just fine, but you should also be able to run a 255/35/18 rear tire without any issues. Hope this helps!

the bigger the rear tire i can run, the better. would you recommend the 8.5 +45 front and 9.5 +50 rear with 225/255 setup? or is there a more standard setup for the 1 series.

thanks!

I'd recommend 8.5 ET45 and 9.5 ET50 with the 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear. The other optional fitment is the 9.5 ET45 rear with a 245/35/18 tire.
