18" VB3 offsets

Just purchased my 2010 335d and looking for offset / tire info for new staggard VMR VB3's. I would like to go with maybe a 245 front and 255 rear (stock suspension) and hopefully avoid spacers. Any recommendations (or pics) for offset / tire sizes would be much appreciated, thanks.

Since you have the LCI, do you have the coupe or sedan? I'd recommend a 18x8.5 +35, 18x9.5 +33 for a coupe, 18x8.5 +35, 18x9.5 +45 for a sedan. If you want guaranteed no rubbing, tires would be a 235/40/18, 255/35/18. This setup will give you absolutely no problems and won't require you to run any spacers, adapters or do any modifications to your fenders. Shoot me a PM and I can give you more details. I can't send you a PM quite yet.

Thanks for the reply... Can I fit 235/45 & 255/40? The car isn't lowered and hoping to fill the gap.

If not, will 265/35 fit in back?

Thanks

235/255 is an odd match for staggered. look to go 235/265. 235s up front will be fine and i believe 265s in the back will be as well.
