This particular car is on TC Kline coilovers and has -2.8 degrees of negative camber in the front to clear the fenders properly, and rolled rear fenders for the wider R-compound Toyo R888's. The customer does not have any rubbing issues with this wheel setup.

The wheel fitment would work on your e92 without any issues, but the 275/35/18 tires may require some work in the rear for the tires to clear the fenders depending on your ride height as well as the make and model of your tires, as some summer tires run a bit wider than others. We would recommend the 265/35/18 tire size in the rear if you would like to avoid any fender rolling or adding negative camber in the rear. The front 18x9" ET31 EC-7 would work with the 245/40/18 as long as the ride height is not extremely low, as that can cause rubbing onto the fender liners.

I have a 2009 e92 coupe with a Dinan Stage III suspension (lowers 1/2" from stock sport package) and Dinan forged 19 x 9" Front Wheels, 19 x 9.5" Rear Wheels with Michelin Pilot sport 265/30-19 front, 275/30-19 rear.

There is a slight amount of rub on the front, which might be eliminated with lower profile fender liner fasteners.

I am thinking of getting a second set of EC-7 18" wheels.

What is the suggested 18" wheel EC-7 size and offset (and tire size) for a square or "close to" square set-up, and no rubbing? while going for maximum concave?

The 18x9" ET31 EC-7 squared setup with 255/35/18 tires is one of the preferred fitments for a squared setup without the requirement of spacers in the front. These wheels are very flush with the fenders, and with the use of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports in a slightly narrower front tire and the negative camber gained from your car being lowered, you should not endure any rubbing, and will have a true squared setup that would allow for wheel rotation.

Hey thanks,

18x9" ET31 EC-7 is the profile 2, correct

While I have you attention on this particular car, what is your staggered suggestion in the Ec-7?

That is correct, the EC-7's in the 18x9" ET31 is indeed Profile 2. For the rear of the car, using a staggered setup, one can decide between the 18x9.5" ET35 or 18x10" ET33 rear which are both Profile 2 EC-7s. It depends how aggressive you would like to go with your car and what wheel design you would prefer between the two, as the 18x10" ET33 is slightly more flush to the fender, and if your rear fenders are rolled, the wheel can properly accommodate a 275/35/18 tire. There have ben some that have gotten the 18x10" ET25 Profile 3 to fit in the rear, but that usually requires heavy fender rolling or pulling, and possibly an undersized tire depending on the tire make and model.

Which particular car are you referring to? Here is an example of a very slightly stretched tire on a wheel, 245/40/18 Hankook RS3 (extreme summer tire) on an 18x9" ET31 EC-7:

Sorry, I would like to have a more detailed close-up picture of those stretch tires (front and rear).
I would like to buy those set-up, is it possilble on a 325d E90 lci version. What's the difference between Pre facelift and facelift model?
Will it fit in combination with original BMW Performance brakes?

Unfortunately we do not have close-up photos of this particular car. However, here are two other angles that may help:





The LCI sedans have an 8mm wider rear tract on their suspension, which results in 8mm less of fender clearance when one is looking to go with wider rear wheels, the offset would have to be less aggressive by 8mm than the pre-LCI version. The EC-7's do have adequate clearance for the OEM BMW Performance Brakes!

So, do you think this will fit without rubbing in the front or rear? Do I need to roll my fenders in the rear? If necessary, I'm able to roll my fenders in the rear.

Due to the LCI models having 8mm less clearance in the rear, it is very difficult to fit a profile 3 rear wheel without major modifications in the rear needed, as a fender roll is not sufficient, so a fender pull would be required. The recommended fitment for the LCI in the rear would be the Profile 2 18x9.5" ET43 EC-7's with the 265/35/18. The standard pre-LCI fitment of 18x9.5" ET35 in the rear will already require a heavy fender roll for LCI models, and even then there may be tire rubbing with rolled rear fenders and a slightly stretched tire sizes of 255/35/18 if the ride height is too low. While it may be possible to force fit the Profile 3 wheel on the LCI e90, it would not be something that is recommended since extremely stretched tires will not provide the wheels with the proper protection from harsh road conditions.

Keep an eye out on the forums and on our Facebook page, we will be making announcements regarding 19" diameters sometime this year!

We are still in the prototyping phase so it is difficult to give any exact dates at the moment.
