335i fittment questions

Hello I got a e92 335i with 21miles...there are 4brsnd new tires for the stock 189 stragged wheels . Tires are 225 and 255 as I remember . However ,I want to get a arggesive look. Like csl wheels ..but I don't want to waste the tires.
Can I just buy other 18 rims and transfer the tires and tspm to the wheels?
I looked at some wheels website.they offer squared wheels only ..like 8.0 x4 / 8.5 x 4...
So what should I do?

You're either drunk or have no idea what you're talking about. "Staggered" is the term you're looking for. (8.0x4) is gibberish.

If you're asking if 18X8 wheels will fit 225/40R18 and 255/35R18, the answer is that the rear tire is too wide to be recommended for the 18X8 wheel.

You *can* mount 225/40R18 and 255/35R18 sizes on 18X8.5" wide wheels.

Buy a staggered set of new wheels and transfer over the tires. I'd recommend 8.5 width up front and 9 width in the rear with that tire size

He is saying he wants to buy (4) wheels all 8.0 inch wide, that's not gibberish. And then put staggered tires on the wheels, again not gibberish, might be unususal but not unheard of. I do agree the rear tire sizes will be too wide. Staggered tires on an 8 inch wheel would be more like 215 front and 235 rear.

IMO if you want to run an 8 inch square set-up run square tires too so they can be rotated front to back and side to side.

I know exactly what he was trying to say, (8.0x4) isn't the way to say it though.
