Hoping for a future group buy. Since I have no budget for tires any time soon, I plan to use 18x9.5 ET 35 all around with my existing 225/18/40

i have continental extreme dws with the same specs. I am pretty sure those widths are too wide for that tire. The apex guys can chime in to clarify.

I have a friend running 18x9.5 ET 25 with a 225/18/40 tire, the fit looks good. Not that stretched even.

In my mind I'm thinking to be one the guys who use apex wheels in a stanced way than performance.

to be honest I want that concave wheel without having to buy new tires. I paid nearly $900 for them and don't feel like doing it again. I don't want to have to drive all prissy either because of stretched tires. I know little about stretching tires. Although I don't track, I do take corners and gas it whenever I get open stretch of highway or dead roads.

Expensive lessons we're learning since getting the exhaust's huh. Here's my buddies front wheel with the offset I mean (sedan). Doesn't look to bad.

The 225/40/18 tire is a bit too narrow on an 18x9.5" wheel and is not something we would recommend typically. We normally would recommend a 255/35/18 or 265/35/18 on the 18x9.5" wheel.

You can fit an 18x9.5" ET35 squared setup on your e90 pre-LCI if you have camber plates to dial in a lot of negative camber (-2.5 or more, depending on tire size and brand). Also, you would need to use a small spacer in the front so that the tire clears the strut tube on the inside of the wheel, since the 18x9.5" is a very wide wheel. Coilovers with camber plates would be something to think about if you don't already have that installed on your car, as it utilizes camber plates and more aggressive front wheels fit the car better when your car is lowered. You can do either the 255/35/18 or 265/35/18 tires on these wheels, depending on the amount of negative camber you would want dialed in. If you have coilovers, you would have to make sure that the spring perch is above the tire so that the tires clear the suspension.

Hey guys @ ApexRaceParts,
Any pictures/experience with ARC-8 18's on e60 530i sport package? I searched all over the net but couldn't find Apex wheels on non-M e60. I'm considering those wheels for daily driving but looks like offset doesn't match, my current (stock) offset is 20 front / 20 rear for Spoke 123 18x8 and 245/40-18 tires. Can I fit those wheels somehow?
