We did a test fitment of the aggressive offset wheels and tires on a pre-LCI E9X non-m. This is not a functional or recommended fitment as the rear fenders were resting on the tires. It was done to see the design only

The rear tire in these photos is a 265 extreme summer tire on a 9.5" ET22 wheel. For a 100% rub free setup with extreme summer or r-compound tires this car would need 9.5" ET43 wheels. For rub free with extreme summer tires the car could use 9.5" ET35 wheels IF the rear fenders are rolled. The ET22 wheels could only be used with 255 tires and a decent rear roll.

The front wheel in this photo is 235/40/18 on an 18x9" ET31 plus a spacer that was seized to the hub. With a 235 tire and no spacer this size would fit fine up front on LCI or pre-LCI models.

Thanks for new fitment info.

I have a pre_LCI 328i w/ sport stock sport suspension.

I would like to run 235/40-18 summer tires up front on 18x9" ET31 wheels.

I would like to run 265/35-18 summer tires on rear.

What is suggested rear wheel for rub free fitment? 18x9" ET31 or 18X 9.5" ET43?

Does pre_LCI e90 rear have more wheel clearance? Any chance the 18 x 9.5" ET35 would work on pre-LCI with 265/35-18 summer tires?

Thanks.....

The front wheel and tire combination will work well on your car.

Pre LCI has 8mm more clearance on the inboard and fender side in the rear. The 18x9.5" ET35 is a great fit with a 265/35-18 tire on a pre-LCI E9x.

I want to run 18x9 31 front and 18x9.5 22 rear for a e90 NON-LCI 335i that is lowered on H&R Sports.

Do you believe this setup is possible with a basic fender roll in the rear.

I know the picture above is of a LCI and I have a NON-LCI which should have more clearance.

My goal is to have profile 2 on the front and have profile 3 on the rear. What setup do you recommend for this?

Thank You

On the front with an 18x9" ET31 we recommend a 245/40/18.
Since your car is non-lci it is possible to run an 18x9.5" ET22 depending on tire size; we recommend a 265/35/18. You will need to roll your rear fenders. It will be easier to run a less aggressively sized street tire like a Michelin Pilot Super Sport. If you decide to go with an extreme performance summer tire like the Hankook RS3 than more fender rolling may be needed.

My car is lowered to the max on the rear and the front is 5 or 6 perch spins away from max drop, according to the body shop that installed it for me.

Are you sure the pictures are of an LCI? The taillights, trunk, headlights, hood, grills, and mirrors are PRE-LCI on that car...I find it hard to believe that someone would convert so many things to an older style...

Since my E90 is preLCI, I would probably go for F18x9 ET31, R18x9,5J ET35.
Do I need to roll my fenders for 235/265 fittment? Would I be able to fit ET22? I like to have as much concave on the rear as possible without any exessive modifications. I'm on stock sport suspension.

That seems like it would be too tall. Wouldn't a 245/35-18 be a better choice for non-m? Would a 245/35/18 on your 18x9" fit the front of the non-m w/o rubbing or spacers?

Since you are pre LCI you can fit an 18x9.5" ET35 in the rear with a 265/35/18 tire without any rubbing issues. The LCI cars are 50/50 with this set-up depending on what kind of tire that is used.

18x9" ET31 will work in the front with anything from a 235/40/18 to a 255/35/18 but you may need some negative camber on the wider end of the spectrum depending on what kind of tire you plan on using. Basically there are three types of tires (extreme performance, r compound, or regular summer tires) which can vary greatly in size even though the same size is written on the sidewall. When using an 18x9.5" ET22 with a 265/35/18 tire in the rear you will need to roll your fenders.

Either tire can be used with out problems, and the 245/35/18 does have a shorter sidewall if there is concern over rubbing.
