255 Square Apex ARC-8's and ST-V1's on e90 LCI

I put these on a few months ago, couldn't be happier, finally took some time to wash everything and snap a few pics. The V1's are close to their highest setting.

It looks to be an 18x9" ET30 square fitment with 255/35-18 tires.

Very clean OP! Glad to see that you are enjoying them, and thank you for the support

Nice choice, 255 up front makes a world of difference.

Are you guys getting any rubbing? I'm thinking about switching over to 255's in the summer with my Apex Arc-8 9" ET30. Did you have to add any camber to make them fit?

I run 18x9 et30 with a 255/35/18 Conti DWS06 on the front with a 5mm spacer and about 2* of camber and have ZERO rubbing issues on an LCI E90

Okay cool. I'm just wondering because I have 225 winters on my 193m with a 15mm spacer and I rub when I turn the wheel in reverse.

Clearance with 255/35-18's is going to boil down to vehicle ride height, tire brand and other variables like how often you are at full lock etc. The 18x9" ET30 can easily support 255/35-18 street tires without any modifications, however the front tires can slightly rub the fender liners under circumstances like making u-turns or something of that nature. If you can dial in some negative camber, it is encouraged.

Customers running a track oriented compound like an RE-71R or NT-01 will definitely need to dial in some negative camber, but doing so is advantageous for more reasons then just fitment/clearance.

I just put 255/40/17 on Arc-8 et30 on all for corners. 2013 E92 335is, stock height and camber. Tires are Michelin A/S3+.

I have not experienced any rubbing. But I am rarely at full lock. Going to pull the alignment pins this weekend just to be safe.

Just realized this was a e90 question. Oh well, nevermind.
