Question VMR VB3 from e46

Found a set from the local classifieds. The wheel specs don't seem bad but the tire combination seems a bit odd. Not sure if it's any good for my e92 x-drive. They also have spacers available.

VMR VB3
18x8.5 et40
18x9.5 et45

Yeah those tires are the exact size I'm currently running on my e90, unfortunately for you the outside diameter difference between the two tires is to much for Xi

Tire sizing is definitely not ideal for your xi.

What tire size range should I be looking at for those wheel specs.

Also, you can run a spacer in the rear to make them more flush with your fenders. 12mm would be a good size to start with.
