193m wheels non staggered

Is anyone running a "non" staggered setup for these 193m wheels? I've searched and searched and can't find the info I'm looking for

I'd like to have same tire size all around for longevity , rotating tires

I have a E90 XI

If you are running non staggered what size tire to go with or spacers size

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I don't see any problem running 193M fronts, 18x8 ET34, in the rear too.

Yeah I figured that. I'm looking into buying these wheels. Offset is 37 in rear 34 in front

Can I run same size tires all around? Like 225/40/18? I did calculations provided by tire rack

Sorry if noob ? But I seem to be lacking the knowledge in this category

Thanks

Yes, you can run 225/40/18 on the rears.
There's only 0.5" difference in the wheel width between the front, 18x8 ET34, and the rears, 18x8.5 ET37.

you cannot rotate staggered rims around a car. If you were to get these wheels, get all the same size width rims. Tire size can be either 225 or 235 with no issue on the 8.5 and 225 on the 8 would be fine.

These rims come 18x8 et34 front and 18x8.5 et37 rear. Are you trying to get 4 of either the fronts or rear? or you already have these wheels and want to run the same size tires on all four of your rims (that are staggered now with 225f, 255r)?

I'm in process of purchasing wheels

I realize I couldn't rotate the wheels/tires due to the offsets being different

Family member has a lift and wheel/tire mounter balancer machine

It's more of a pain but with those tools it's free to me, that's why I want to run same size tire all around

I've been running 193M rear wheels, 18x8.5, with 255/35 tires on all 4 corners for 1.5 years. No problem whatsoever.
