Wheel Fitment Question

Hi Guys -

I've done some searching and I don't think I'll have issues, but before I go ahead and purchase these rims, I wanted to make sure they'll fit my setup:

Stock 07 335i w/ sport suspension

Looking at purchasing a winter tire package with the following specs:
Rims (all four) are 18x8.5, +20 offset
Tires: 225 45 18 (fronts)
255 40 18 (rears)

Will I need any spacers or hub centric rings?

I appreciate the help.

Nick

Any help on what I'm missing?

All I got from the seller is that they are gunmetal M5 replica wheels they used to be on his M3 and the specs are below:

Rims (all four) are 18x8.5, +20 offset
Tires: 225 45 18 (fronts)
255 40 18 (rears)

Thanks for the help.

Since they came of a M3, there'e no need for hub centric rings.

And with ET20 offset, there's no need for spacers either, in fact they're are on the aggressive side and might rub. Especially with those tires that are a number too tall since they should be 225/40/18 and 255/35/18.

+20mm offsets is aggressive for a 335i coupe..stock offsets w those size wheels and tires are +34mm front, +37mm rear..u may rub as the tire will protrude from under the fender

Ill have to agree with Remmib.

The tire sizes are a bit too tall. Unfortunately M3's run a taller sidewall and is able to run a lower offset wheel because of their wider fenders. In your case, the taller sidewall and lower offset may cause rubbing issues.
