4 tires (no rims) in E92 coupe?

Is it possible to fit 4 tires in the trunk and back seats with the seats folded down?

Looking to bring my stock sized tires home (255/35/18 and 225/40/18) after having some Hankook V12's installed.

Any hints on how to get this accomplished?

I'm guessing one in the trunk and 2 in the back seat? Will the fourth tire fit stacked on top of the two in the back seat? Or do I need to put the fourth in the front seat?

If you make use of the back seat, there is plenty of room to do it. No tricks involves.

How good are you at Tetris?

haha, you will have no issues carrying 4 wheels, 5 wheels is possible too. Be sure to bring trash bags to protect your leather. Tire grease can be pretty nasty.

Tetris is exactly what I was thinking. lol.

I was successful in putting 1 tire in the trunk area. I put two on their sides in the back seat area, and the fourth stacked on top of the two. I lined every surface with plastic trash bags cut open and laid out.

If I MAXED the space out, I could have put 4 total in the back seat area and one in the passenger seat, making a total of 6 carried in the car.
