Square Set

Hello Everyone,

I was looking at running a square set of 18x9.0" ET31. I'm sure that they would fit just fine in the rear but was wondering if that size is pushing it too much for the front of an E92? Also, would I be able to fit some 235 on them without stretching them? Or would it be best to run 245s?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

You'll be fine. And I'm sure after you put them on you'll want a little more aggressive and want spacers lol

LOL I'm sure I will feel like that for the rears. If I do purchase them, I'll probably source some 5mm spacers. I know people usually say that an et 35 on 8.5 wheel in the front is flush with the fender right? I dont want the wheels to poke out too much.

Does anyone have some feed back on the tire size? Would 235 work fine or should I look for 245s?

I thinks it depends on what tyre you want. If you choose some tyres with square shoulders, like Michelin PSS, you will be OK with 235\40. But you can also choose tyre with narrower shoulder like Hankook V12, then it will be better choosing 255\35.

245\40 will be too much tall i think.

Can anyone confirm if I can run 245/40 (ET 31 on the wheels) on all 4 corners on a stock height e92?
