I have an '08 328xi and the suspension sits high.

Will an et25 10 with 275/35r18 will work w/o rubbing?

Might just move the 9.5s to the front.
The 18x9.5" ET35 is a go-to rear fitment for the E9X 3 series because it is a direct fit with just about any 265 tire, and even many 275 tires. For enthusiasts wanting to install a proven rear fitment that will easily accommodate 265 and even 275 tires without trouble, this is a great option that will not require modification to the car. It accommodates different ride heights, alignment settings and the variance present between different tire brands.

With that said, for coupes or pre-lci sedan owners looking for a flush rear fitment, a more aggressive wheel can be used. There a a few options depending on tire size and how much modification the owner is willing to make.

18x9.5" ET35 - Play with 5mm to 15mm spacers depending on where you want the wheel positioned within the rear fenders.

18x10" ET33 - This wheel is 8mm more aggressive towards the rear fenders than the 18x9.5" ET33. Typically direct fit with 265 tires, however some tires may require fender rolling or negative camber to prevent rubbing under compression.

18x9.5" ET22 - This wheel is 13mm more aggressive towards the rear fenders than the 18x9.5" ET35. Rolling rear fenders or dialing in negative camber to prevent rubbing under load may be required.

18x10" ET25 - This is the most aggressive option that is still do-able with stock fenders. This wheel is 16mm more aggressive towards the rear fenders than the 18x9.5" ET35. These will almost certainly require fender rolling and/or negative camber to prevent rubbing under compression.

I hope this helps

Uh, sorry for being that guy but I haven't really found the setup that I have in mind..

I was looking to do a squared 265 set up 17 Inch 9.5 Apex Arc-8s.. is that possible? I have an E92 335i that's still at stock ride height

No problem! We are happy to help. The 17x9.5" ET35 squared can fit, but it is an aggressive fitment and will require some work. Up front, you will need at least an 8mm spacer to clear your suspension, and then negative camber will need to be dialed in. Spacer size is dependent on what type of suspension and tires you have, so a larger spacer may be needed in some cases. In the rear, a 265 is typically a direct fit.

If you are looking for a direct fit, then I would recommend going with our 17x9" ET30 wheels. This provides the same concavity as the 17x9.5" ET35, but usually does not require spacers to be installed up front (unless you are using a conical style suspension such as KW, or Ohlins. In that case, a 5mm spacer may be needed up front). You would be able to run 245/40-17 or 255/40-17 tires on that fitment. A touch of negative camber may be needed with 255's depending on your ride height and tire brand/compound.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

I appreciate your reply Matt, great customer service . Always a pleasure seeing that.

Anyways, thanks for the reply Matt. My goal is to have the rims by the end of the year so if anyone's looking to the same setup I'll be more than happy to share it when it's all set!

FBO E50 + ARC-8s are the goal for the end of the year.. time will tell.

Alrighty, I searched up the maximum camber on stock suspension and it's only about -1.2 or so? For the front.

I was just wondering if that's enough to clear the car, if not if you could recommend camber plates.

Bmw 335i e92 2009.

Thanks!

No problem! We are always happy to assist. Looking forward to seeing the wheels on your car in the near future

-1.2 degrees would likely not be enough when running the 17x9.5" ET35 + spacer up front. If you were to run the 17x9" ET30, then you would have no issues. If you do plan to run the 17x9.5" ET35, then I would recommend purchasing a set of camber plates. We do offer camber plates directly on our website, so you would be able to purchase them alongside your wheels

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Sorry to be a bother again Matt. I decided to just do staggered 245/40-17 which is perfect fitment and 265s in the rear. But, what tire to I get for the rear? Michelin Pilot Super Sports only have 265/35-18 so I'm not sure what tire and whether I should I have 40 or 35 in the rear?

Basically, my front is going to be Apex Arc-8's ET30 17x9" running a 245/40R-17 tire.
But, I'm stumped on what to do for the rear. My plan is to run a 265 tire with the Apex Arc 8 ET35 265/XR-17. Just missing the "X"

Will the EC 7’s on 18x9 +31 with 245/40/18 F and 18x10 +25 with 275/35/18 work with Öhlins? I know Ground Control camber plates will be needed in front, but what else would I need? Assuming that fender rolling will be required.

Rear fenders are rolled (no pull) and my camber is a -1.0 in front, -3.2 rear (max stock adjustment for my car). Still rubbing a little bit in the rear, my next step will be to tighten the rebound stiffness.

Inner clearance up front is extremely tight with my KW coilovers, ~1mm!!! Photo of inner clearance

Your comment almost brought a tear to my eye, she was totaled back in October

I just picked up a 2011 335is on Sunday though, 6MT, Space Grey over Coral Red. Let the journey begin!

Looks awesome!

I have a set of H&R’s sat here waiting to go on!

Are those E9x tyre sizes? Surely 235/40 & 265/35 would be the way to go? Or would it cause rubbing?

A 245/40-19 is a bit tall, and may lead to some rubbing against the fender liner. 245/35-19 was the safer option. The customer ran a 265/30-19 in the rear to give a bit more room with the 19x9.5" ET33. That wheel is quite aggressive on the F3X chassis, which is why a shorter tire was used. Those tires would work well on the E9X chassis as well.

Thanks for the reply!

Would 235/40/19 on a 8.5j ET35 & 265/35/19 on a 9.5j ET33 work as a hassle free, no rub set up on a F31 LCI on H&R springs? Car is M Sport+ with the blue Brembo’s.

Thanks for the post! With the 19s we recommend using shorter 235/35-19 and 265/30-19 tires to prevent rubbing in the rear. Taller tires may require rolled rear fenders to clear properly.

Hope this helps!

While it is definitely possible to do with work done to your car, the 17x9.0" ET30 ARC-8's or 18x9.0" ET31 EC-7's become a more popular squared fitment for the e9x chassis since it is a spacer free fitment.
And 17x9 ET30 is also a good spacer not required fitment for E36 M3 too right? (I now have both and would like to be able to swap between)

@APEX - I know KWs have very little clearance, but was wondering if there are any known clearance issues with Ohlins and my setup?

Pre-LCI coupe, ARC-8 18x9 et30 (245/40), 18x9.5 et35 (265/35), Tires are PSS.
