This set up is a direct fit and a great staggered fitment that a lot of E9x owners have used with success. If you have any more questions about the fitment please feel free to call, email, or pm us.

I just put these on & here's a quick dirty pic. My car is a 2010 e90 335i xDrive.

EC7s in F:18x9 et 31 and R:18x10 et 25
Tires are Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta
F: 235/40/18 / R: 265/35/18

I'm running Koni sports with Swift coilover springs (7kg/12kg) on TCK sleeves up front & AST height adjusters in the rear. 6" springs up front are set tad under 1" from lowest setting. There's about .75-1" gap above the tire all around. The rears will rub but just slightly only over occasions when the shocks compress beyond 2".

The rears fit to my taste perfectly. I plan to roll the rear fenders & go another 1" lower on a different set of coilovers with 3-5mm spacers up front.

Do you have any camber? I thought a 9.5" in the front would hit the strut? Could you have gone any wider on the tires?

There is about 2 mm room between wheel and stock front strut. I have the same size front wheel (see the first page) and no camber adjustment.

Looks good! I have the exact same year,color, etc. I'm trying to figure out what wheels to swap out for the stock 16'' turds that came with it. Yours look good, but I'd opt for hyper silver. Would you happen to have any other pics of the car from the back looking forward, back, or whatever? I'm trying to determine if I'll need spacers or if the wheels sit fairly flush with the wheel well. I want the 18x9's if they fill the well a little better.

Thanks.. Looks great!

Garage List
2011 BMW 335i  [4.20]
EC-7s in 18x8.5 front (ET35) & 9.5 rear (ET35), no spacers. Completely stock suspension on a 2011 E92 LCI, no fitment issues whatsoever. I have Koni/HPA coilovers in the garage waiting to be installed, I'll break out the nice camera once I get them on the car.

All of these cars are looking great guys! Keep it up!

Here's a fun and different set up.

Apex ARC-8's, Anthracite, 18x9" ET42 and 17x9.5" ET35
255/35/18 front street tire and a Hoosier Drag Slick in the rear
Camber plates
Negative camber is necessary in the front to fit a 255/35/18 tire
12mm front wheel spacers needed

I like hyper silver better but my son wanted black. Let me know if these pictures work for you. If not let me know and I'll snap some better pictures this weekend.

18x9 fills the front perfectly. The back is pretty good but if you're a perfectionist then a small spacer between 5mm and 10mm would make it right.

Thanks for the pics! Those look great. The rep at Apex Race Parts recommended 18x8.5 all around for square set up with 15mm spacers on the rear (tire contingent) which they recommended 230/40/18's.. I'm going with the Arc-8's, after looking at your pics though I'm wondering if I shouldn't just go 9's instead of 8.5 though.

It is because of the offset they have on the wheel style. The ARC-8 18x8.5 offset is 38 but the 18x9 offset is 42. My wheel offset is 31 so it's more aggressive (pushed out).

Take their recommendation and go to the calculator and check to see if it's what your wanted.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12

For reference my wheel/tire is EC-9 18x9 offset 31 tire size 235/40/18

I just mounted my EC's 8.5/9.5 et 35 .....wanted the 9/10 stagger but was recommended to get direct bolt on's . I did not want to make any other costly adjustments before the winter. I feel the rear could use a 5-10mm.

so my plan is to get the 10mm rear and call it a day. Will add pics when I get it cleaned tomorrow, she's been riding dirty cause the weather.

Think the clearance is a bit different on my Pre-LCI XI though.
