Anyone using ET25 on 18X10"

I want to use 255/35/18, ET25 18X10" on E90 335i with SP package; not lowered, wish not to rolling the fender.
I understand this is a very close fit and it may work ??? Please contact me if anyone is running this setup.

255 stretched to a 10" rims is a terrible idea. The tire may even fall off the wheels all together.

I have ET25 19x9.5 with 275's in the rear but NOT lowered or have sport suspension. I'm sure the ET25 18x10 will work just fine.

I am sure it will work but he wants to stretch a 255 tire on there which I dont think is a good idea at all. You may know better ad your more of a wheel expert than I am.

Just so I know for future reference... how much more clearance does the E90 have over the E92, ~10mm? Just curious after reading this thread.

stretched?? no way man... 255 is a 9.5 inch tire.. if you go with like... 235 with is 9.5 inches then it might be alittle stretched. Stretched tires wont fall off the wheel. Alot of drifters stretch their tires because it allows for Flush filament, as well as better handling because the sidewalls dont flex as like a wheel with a too wide of a tire. having too wide of a tire on a wheel for example.. 9inch in wheel w/ a 11inch tire. the rubber buldges out and handling is reduced. stretched tires are alot more predictable in turns because the sidewalls are stiff all the way.

225= 8in
235=8.5in
245=9in
255=9.5
265=10in

That will be very tight I would think, I have ET23 on mine and that is a 9.5" wheel and it is pushing it.
I have 265 ps2 tyres on at the moment and they are rubbing over speed bumps, so I have ordered some 255 Falken FK452's as they are a not only smaller but are known as a narrow tyre for their side.

10" will stick out past the arch, sorry fender, by a good half inch with that offset.

I have an E91, same room as the E90...



I will report back on Monday as they have 265/40/18's on there at the moment as they are off the new M3, but they will have 255/35/18's on by Monday.

If they still rub I will roll the fender.

Did you rolled your fender or neg camber for the rear?? It is hard to believe 265/35/18 would fit without rubbing.

It might be a tight fit. I can do a full turn w/out any scratching in the front, but not sure if you go 245/35. Why don't you just use 235/40?
