Shopping for Wheels Need Some Advice

I currently have a 2009 335i M-Sport Alpine white. I am looking for an aggressive fitment but I do not want to have to roll my fenders. I was looking at the BMW performance wheels for my car but unfortunately they won't fit because they are designed for the M3. Can anyone give me their opinion
on what will look best? Thanks in advance!

We have a couple different options for your car with different styles. For either wheel model I would recommend an 18x8.5" in the front with a 235/40/18 tire and an 18x9.5" ET35 in the rear with a 265/35/18 tire. This wheel set up gives a nice staggered look with out the need for additional wheel spacers or fender rolling.


The ARC-8 is our most popular street and track wheel and we have fitments available that look great and can work on your car without the need for fender rolling.


The EC-7 is our newest wheel with a slightly different curved spoke design but still retains the street and track performance that Apex is known for. The EC-7 features much better big brake kit clearance as well as a few new fitments that can work on your car.

Feel free to send me a pm if you have any more specific questions on the wheels.

I am on stock suspension which will eventually be upgraded. I would prefer for it to be 18inch? Considering that the tires will be cheaper than getting 19's. I am open to all ideas with what looks best so I would say Mesh style, concave, & possibly a lip depending on the style of the wheel. Thanks!

If you actually want aggressive fitment you would need more then just a fender roll. But like alot of guys on here I don't really think you know what aggressive really is. No offense btw

Price different isn't as bad as you would think for 19. The visual difference would be worth the price difference.
