needing help on fitment.

Hey, im new to the forum. i just picked up my 2006 325xi the other day. and i love it. but i had a problem deciding if this wheel fitment will work on me car.
it is xxr 526 18x9 squared et+25? i did a bit of searching and found no information on these wheels specifically. i was wondering if they did fit, what would be a good combination of tires that will give a little bit of stretch on the rim. thanks in advance!

You might consider spacing the fronts a bit more.

Before the face lift. 2006-2008.

This is what a square 18x8.5 +35 will look at stock ride height.

Cool, thanks or the advice. I'm debating on running staggered. I was thinking maybe 8.5 front and 9.5 in the back.

Idk much about the rim and the sizes they come in, but I'd run a 18x9 in the front with a 225 tire and 18x10 with a 245 in the rear. You'll achieve your stretch look and depending on the offsets not even have to roll your fenders

That sounds good. You think the wheel spin ratio will be a problem on the xi? Beautiful car btw!

thanks! and I don't believe it would, or at least I assume because I know other members on the forum with xi who run a staggered setup. Considering I don't have one myself I'm not 100%

Just picked up some alufelgen sf-71 from lacster, a member on this forum.
19x8.5 et 35
19x9.5 et 35

I was wondering what would be a good tire size that will keep me in the one percent so my awd won't act up and also give me a little stretch. I was also of thinking of putting 1/2 inch spacers to give me a little bit more flush. Any help would be great. Thanks!
