CSL 18" wheels & 335 ques

Quick question about the VMS CSL wheels and my 07' 335. I want to use my original tires with these wheels is that a problem considering that the CLS wheels are a little wider than my stock 162 wheels? Or will I need new tires even if I go with the 18" wheels? I think my stock wheels are 18x8 in the front and 18x8.5 in the rear, the CLS are 18x8.5 in the front, 18x9.5 in the rear. Thanks!

Nope, you will be fine. Your ride may suffer slightly, but this will be at the expense of greater handling stability. Another thing you will have to worry about is potential curb rash as your rims will now be the widest part of your wheel/tire setup. The bridgestones have a pretty good rim protection lip though.

Bottom line, this is the way all BMWs with sport packages should come from the factory!

Good deal and thanks. Trying to find who has the best deal on them with center caps, etc. Also, not sure but are the CLS not available in hyper silver in 18"?

Yep, just to confirm, you can run your stock tires on these wheels.

We do have the 18's available for your car in either Silver or Hyperblack, hypersilver is not offered at this time.

You should go with the 19 inch CSL's the 18's look too small. Also the 19's will fill in your fenders very nicely.

We have the 19's in stock if you need some help.
