Apex arc8 what offsets?

Does anyone here have apex arc 8's on a 335 coupe?

I've decided that with all the 18 inch wheels on the market, the Apex arc8's are what I'm going with.

I have a 2007 335 coupe and will be lowered on coils soon and don't ever plan on running a bbk. So I'm hoping some of you guys on here that understand fitment better than I do can give me some guidance.

What offsets should I go with? What tire sizes? I met a guy with a mcoupe that had a set of arc8's and he told me the wheels start to have a nice concave look to them at a 9.5 width. Can I fit 18x9.5 fronts and 18x10 rears without rolling the fenders? I know you can't roll the front fenders on a e92 coupe.

I won't be tracking the car but I want a light wheel with the mesh look and provides performance and strength.

I want a aggressive look where the wheel/ tire really fills in the wheel well and is flush to the fender.

Yes you can fit 9.5 front
Here is a guy with 9.5 et35

But because you have coilovers you need spacer to clear inside.

Im waiting my Apex Arc-8 to arrive my E90.Sizes 18x9.5 et35 front and 9.5 et22 rear.
Tyres in my case are 235/40 allround.I donīt want to mess with camber/fender rolling.

Also i read/heard somewhere that the arc-8 10wide doesnīt have that much difference at concavity compared to 9.5.


Here is more talk about 9.5 front with different tyre sizes

You can roll E92 rear fenders if you want those are not plastic.
