VMR wheels Pre-LCI fitment compatible with LCI?

I currently own a 2006 325i pre-lci and running on 18 X 8.5, 9.5 ET35, ET33 with 235/40/18 and 265/35/18. VMR VB718 wheels.

I'm planning to trade-in for a 2009 or 2010 328i or 328ix and was wondering if my wheels and tires will fit the newer car?

They should, especially if you get an xi. My only concern would be the rear fitment maybe being a tad aggressive for lci. If you plan on lowering in the future you'll probably have to roll the fenders. On stock suspension it'll be fine (albeit tight) I think - maybe someone else can weigh in and confirm.

the difference is not that great. it is only an issue when running very aggressive setups.

So will my existing wheels and tires fit without problem on my new LCI car?
Still deciding on a 328i and a 328xi.

34/37 is LCI stock. You are a little wider in the wheel, but even with 265 you are clear.

I'm looking at a few 2009-2010 LCI CPO and have the following question.

With my current wheels and tires on my 325i sport, can anyone tell me if they will or not fit with these following cars? Do I need spacers, new tires, replace wheel?

VMR V718
18X8.5 ET35
18x9.5 ET33
235/40/18 and 265/35/18 General G-Max

I've read that it is ok to run staggered on xi with sport package. What if its not with sport package?

2009 LCI yes/no?

-328i
-328xi
-335i
-335xi

Thanks for your help!

Are you basing your decision on your new car on if the reps will fit? Seems a little backwards to me.

Not deciding on car based on wheel compatability. Just wanted to know how different cars require different setups.
I am still in the hunt for a newer car and whatever comes I will already know what needs to be done in terms of wheels and tires.

More of a heads up question.

To me wheels makes the most impact in terms of looks.

Seems like you're over thinking this. Those are very mild offsets, they'll fit just like stock wheels.

If looks are very important to you, get spacers or different wheels.
