Will this wheel setup work?

Hey, Ive got an 08 335XI Coupe and im looking at this wheel setup and im curious as to if it will work. I am also concerned with it not clearing the brake calipers, as he had mentioned it wouldnt clear his. Anyone have any idea on these wheels?

If I did the calculations right the diff between the front and the rear is somewhere like ~0.2%

R: 18x9 ET 38 255/35/18

Please, and thank you.

EDIT: Also looking to drop on some KWV1's or V2's if it makes a difference.

Those should fit no problem. what is your concern about the clearence in front with the brake calipers? Are you running stock brake calipers, if so you have no problems. I also have 08 335xi and run 18x8.5 et 35 in front with no issues.

Shinzi I think you will be fine. If he's not to far from you may he will let you try before you buy and see how they fit. There nice looking wheels, they look like a bbs or csl style. If for some reason the fronts wont work you can always run a 10 mm spacer to clear the brake caliper, but I don't see that as an issue for you. hth

It should fit no problems

Looking at the other thread, seem like the shop that he brought those wheels to is on crack.

No problem. Post up some pics of them on your car if you decide to buy them.
