Having An Issue Please Help!

Hey everybody, here is my deal,

I recently bought a set of FORGESTAR F14's

they are 18x9 square set up

i have all wheel drive on my 2010 E92 335
wanted to stay conservative and not stagger my wheel but i have no idea what tire size to get.

i was thinking 245/40/18 , but on my test fit i notice that the inner part of the rim on the front was literally just off of the strut. worried about that.

please give me your comments and suggestions!

do you know your offsets? hows the fitment on the outside?? just throw on some spacers but 245 on the front is difficult...

i run 19x9j et25 with 225/35 and i rub a little....

What offset are your wheels?

245/40/18 is somewhat tall, so there's a chance you'll end up rubbing on things, especially if you space out your wheels and tires.

Im not sure of the offset exactly, by I dont think its too different from the stock ones.

What would be the appropriate size for an 18x9 wheel?

245/40/18 will work as long as you have enough clearence from the strut. You really should find out the offsets.
