i read some people say they recommends rims for E90 in 18" size is:
front 8 x 18" 225/40 r18
rear 8.5 x 18" 255/35 r18

Issues:

1. can use 8.5 X 18" size in front ?
2. do i need put any spacer in any of the rears to adapt them?
3. can i use RFT tires for Rims 18"?
4. will have issues with my engine (2.0) or direction/suspention problems for the wide of the wheels?
