Your good. dont need anything. those rims are far from aggressive so theres no worries. you can even slam your ride if you wanted to but i wouldnt recommend it lol

Thx again! What tire size for a more comfortable ride would you recommend other than the 225/40/18? I'm cheating out this year so looking for economy brands but with decent ride comfort and tolerable noise.

For that 8" Width, the tire size it comes with is perfect.

Keep in mind the 40 offset especially with your E90 will look super tucked in. Just a heads up incase you don't like that look. I personally dont but some people love it

Will spacers do? If so, is there anything else I should worry about or require?
Thx!

Yup. 10-15mm spacers would work
