Last, do you guys have any plans to make the AERO-7 for 3 series.

Thanks.
The color of the EC-7s pictured is the Race Silver. The direct fitment for the LCI e92 335i would be the 18x8.5" ET35 and 18x9.5" ET43 with the Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires in the 225 and 255 widths. There are no plans on making the AERO-7 wheels for the 3-series at this time.

I forgot to mention, I'm look both front & rear to be concave as possible. I do not think the 35 or 43 offsets concave much.

Since you have an LCI E92 the wheel hubs extend 8mm further than a PRE-LCI car. This makes it much harder to fit a lower offset concave wheel in the rear.

Transferring the 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 tires makes things easier since these are narrower tires than we usually suggest. It is possible to fit an 18x9" ET31 profile 2 concave wheel in the front but your 225/40/18 tire will have a significant stretch over the wider 9" wheel compared to the 8.5" we initially suggested. The 18x9.5" ET35 and ET43 use the same concavity profile 2 and will look the same. The 18x9.5" ET22 is a more concave profile 3 wheel but it is too low of an offset wheel on an LCI E92 and you would need to heavily roll your fenders, maybe even flare them.

are you positive the wheel hubs on the LCI e92 have changed. From what I have read only the LCI e90s have changed. Please confirm.

Yes, both E90 and E92 LCI's have 8mm less rear wheel clearance due to the hub difference.

so can the 18 x9 +31 fit non staggered on my 2011 E92 M sport? Looking to do 255 all around without needing to roll the fenders.

Yes you can do the 18x9.0" ET31 squared setup on your LCI e92 M-sport. On the front of your e92, for the 18x9" ET31 we recommend a 245/40/18 street for it to fit without issues, since a 255/35/18 would require about negative 2 degrees of camber to clear.

The rears may need a light fender roll for the 255/35/18 street tire to not rub on the rears. The 245/35/18 street tire should clear the rears without any issues, as long as it's not an extreme performance tire such as the Hankook RS3 or Dunlop Star Specs.

For the preorder, since the EC-7's will be shipping for free domestically and discounted internationally we can only make one shipment, not two separate ones. If we already have your profile 1 or 3 wheels, we will wait until the profile 2 wheels arrive to ship your order.

I have a pre LCI 335i E90 w/ eibach pro kit and koni fsd. The tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sports with the stock tires sizes:

Front: 225/40-18
Rear: 255/35-18

What would be the best wheel size combination for the EC-7 to be able to use with this setup?

For stock tire sizes that are slightly narrower than what we normally suggest you could run an 18x8.5" ET35 in the front and an 18x9.5" ET35 in the rear. If you installed any wider of a wheel on the car the tires would look very stretched and even with the suggestions I am giving they will look slightly stretched. For pre LCI cars we usually recommend a 235/40/18 in the front and a 265/35/18 in the rear.

A square setup on your car could consist of 18x9" ET42 wheels with a 245/35/18 tire. You would need at least a 5mm spacer in the front but a 12mm would be on the safer side. Please keep in mind running that much spacer in the front will require some negative camber. A staggered setup could also be used on your awd Xi without a problem and you could run an 18x8.5" ET38 in the front with a 235/40/18 tire and an 18x9.5" ET43 in the rear with a 265/35/18 tire.

18x8.5" ET35 would work great on your car as a square set up with 235/40/18 tires. Please note that a square configuration is not necessary on AWD BMW's and we could also set you up with a staggered fitment. The square fitment will provide a nice visual improvement over your stock 18's but a 12mm spacer or possibly more could still be used on the rear with the square set up. A small spacer could possibly be used in the front but you do risk rubbing unless you have camber plates.

Still waiting for my wheels as I ordered profile 2 and they had some issue with that batch and expected them end of this month. Apex did compensate for the extra wait time but I am still waiting .

The Majority of the E9x orders were for Profile 2 wheels which will be arriving at our warehouse next week. The wheels will be shipping out either at the end of next week or the Monday after. We would love for you guys to post up pictures once you do start receiving them.

We do still have more EC-7's available post pre order so please give us a call, email, or pm if you are interested or have any questions regarding fitment.
