e92 fitment question

I'm looking to get some TE37SL's was wondering if this would fit or what would I have to do to make them fit. I will probably wrapped them in Falken 452s cause of the rounded sidewalls.

I'm lowered on ST coils.

F 18x9.5 ET22
R 18x10.5 ET20

F 18x8.5 ET35
R 18x9.5 ET22

What tire size would you recommend for no rubbing issues.

Depends what kind of look you're going for, if you want the stretched look then the first but if not I would rec. the second one. You can also run wider tires which will help with traction and performance. And if its not flush enough you could always throw a 5mm,spacer in there... Etc. Hope this helps! -Ted

And 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the input! Would i have to roll my fenders for either one? I want to go with a slight stretch and poke.

IMO since your looking for the strech 'n poke stance, i think that the 9.5 fronts and 10.5 rears would be the best option and yes i do believe that you will need to get your fenders rolled

i think you can, but that's only if you run smaller tires

..so for example, instead of going with a 265 for the rears, you would need to go with a 255

What tire size would you recommend for no rubbing issues.
Choose the 9.5 and 10.5 wheels.It will look better and will be more aggressive looking.

Here is a E92 with 19x9.5 +20 225/35/19 front & 19x11 +25 tyre 265/30/19 rear. Fender roll to rear and more - camber.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=736810

I'm sure^he can tell you more details about that setup.

Your rear will retract 1mm from that. Its basically the setup you are considering, but he has 11 wide rear.
In your case i would choose 255/35/18 rear and 225/40/18 front. Remember you can't roll your front fenders those are plastic.

Hope this helps you.

i run those wheels with oem size tires
i ordered same size tires but different brand, kumbo ecsta 4x
good review on them not rounded sidewall but i plan to roll fenders anyways so it shouldnt matter
i am running 9.5 squared tho.
it rubs in rear with 255/35 but very minor occasionally on some bumps but does not bother me too much.
i am not sure about 10.5 in rear, it will rub everytime i assume

I'm assuming that you rub because you don't run camber on the rear right?

whichever set you choose from those two, you will definitely need to roll the rears. keep in mind, to stuff a 9.5 up front with a +22 offset, you're going to need to stretch the tires pretty well (not just "slight"). remember, the front fenders on the e92 are plastic so you cant roll them.

that said, i vote for the first set up too 9.5/10.5.

With the fronts being 9.5 would it rub?

9.5 front and 10.5 rear will look a lot nicer and aggressive

im pretty sure that since the fronts are 9.5 with an ET of 22...your not going to need to add a spacer cause that spec is already flush

I run 19x9.5 et20 in the front and don't rub at all with pretty much maxed stock camber in the front. My rears rub a little bit but I have 19x11 et25 stretched on 245/35/19 and my rear camber is set at -2.8. You'll be fine just make sure you camber front and back a little and roll or cut your fenders. Probably wont even need to cut fenders just a mild roll and you probably won't even rub on big dips.
