255/35 on 18"x9.5" square set up

Hey there,

Wanted to see if anyone knows if I can run this or not? I don't mind running spacers if I have to. The car is a 2011 e90 335d and would be running KW v1s as close to stock height as possible (1" front drop .9" rear).

I haven't decided on wheels yet, but someone was running a similar set up on Miro 111s at et 25. I only see et 20s on Miro's website? Is that too aggressive?

What offset wheels should I look for if I want to run a square set up like this? I want to avoid running camber plates or anything like that if possible.

Thanks!

One thing is for sure you will need camber plates or coils that include those, since you have to adjust front camber and it's not adjustable from factory. Highest offset that would clear your front shocks with coils is about 18x9.5 et30. Lower offset just means that you need more negative camber. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1052777

So no chance that this (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=789790) was accomplished without camber plates?

I don't think so. By the way if you get bc racing br coils those include camber plates at front.

I am about to purchase a set of 18"x9.5" Apex EC-7s et35 wheels. Can anyone recommend what size spacers to run front and rear?

255/35s will be mounted to these

At least 4mm up front 5mm if you want to be safe. 3mm on my same size arc8 setup rubbed on my e90 LCI with Michelin PSS. Rear no rub with 5, slight run with 7mm more than that may need a very slight fender roll. 10mm looks super flush but rubbed a little.

Camber is front -1.2 and rear -2.2.

Car looks badass man! I have to ask... Where did you get the front bumper, and how is the fit? I need one.

Thanks man! It is an eBay m3 Rep, forget which seller but one that was recommended by some others on here. Fitment and quality is about 9.5/10. Couple small imperfections but nothing anyone would ever notice that didn't install it.
