Garage List
255/35/18 & 225/40/18 on 18/9.5 & 18/8.5 on XI Koni/H&R Sports?

Can this be done?

335xi sedan on koni yellow sport and H&R sports.

Great set of wheels I'm interested in:

Front;

225/40/18 on 18/8.5" wheels

Back:

255/35/18 on 18/9.5" wheels

Will this be within tolerance for an XI/AWD lowered setup??

I run that setup without the drop, but I have plenty of room. As long as the offsets aren't too aggressive you will be okay. I've even put 10mm and 15mm spacers on and I am still okay.

Yes tyre diameter difference is well below the 1%, that is acceptable for Xi. Your difference is 0.2%.
