E90 335I and Mk Motorsport Fitment Issues

Im currently trying to fit my mk motorsports on my 07 335i. The front rims are 18x8.5 et 13 and rears are 18x10 et20. Im having issues with my caliper clearence. The fronts will clear with a 15 or 20mm spacer, but im not sure about the rears. Anyone experience similar issues? Id rather not have to shave the caliper for rim fitment...

That's sounds weird. Do you have stock 335 brakes? I haven't heard that 18 inch wheels have clearance issues with brakes. You will have hard time fitting 18x8.5 et13+15mm spacer to front without issues. Any pics?

Those seem to have thick inner barrel. Only solution is to shave from caliber if it is only rubbing very little. Or use spacers to clear it, but like said with 15mm spacer the front offset will be really low.

There isn't much to roll at front. Shaving the front would give more room. What you would also need is negative camber and stretched tyres. These pictures are from my front 18x9.5 et22 and 225/40/18 tyre. -1degree of camber.

Your 18x8.5 et13 with 15mm spacer would be et -2 and would extend 11mm more from my front wheel. I wouldn't necessarily try to fit them with spacers, because i think it's not going to work.

This car has 18x8.5 et15 with 225/40/18 and 18x10 et17 with 255/35/18
