Fitment Opinions

About to pick up some Apex Arc 8's

Front - 18x8.5 38mm
Rear - 18x9.5 35mm

I'll be living in Alabama so I don't need any all season tires. Not going to be tracking. Some good DD tires with a bit of width/quietness.



Thanks for the help in advance

Thanks for the help in advance
The sizes you have listed are the direct fitment for Pre LCI E9x's with a 235/40/18 front tire and a 265/35/18 rear tire. If your car is an LCI, because of an 8mm wider track width you will need to roll your rear fenders slightly to get the 265/35/18 tires to fit. I see in your avatar that you have a 2010 335i and that was right in the middle of the crossover so I can't give a complete recommendation at this time.

Mine is pre-LCI.

Great! The original fitment recommendations of 18x8.5" ET38 with a 235/40/18 front tire and and 18x9.5" ET35 with a 265/35/18 rear tire would work really well on your car. This fitment would not require spacers or fender rolling.
