Please help

2011 328i xDrive lowered on eibach pro kit springs. Looking into a set of wheels 18x8.5 et30 for front and 18x9.5 et22 for the rear. As far as tire sizes go, would a 235/40/18 in front work and a 265/35/18 in back fit without any fender modification? Or should I stick with the 225/40/18 and 255/35/18? Thanks

Plenty of e90/e92's run 235/265 but the rear specs you listed are slightly aggressive and could rub. The mild stretch on the 255 would help even more along with rear fender roll/pull, negative camber etc. I believe ~ET30-33 rear on e92's and ~ET33-45 on e90's shouldn't be a problem (no modification) with 235/265. Hope this helps!

Thank you! I think I'll stick with the 255 rear to be safe. I'd rather not do any fender modification if I can help it. Now on camber... Will I need anything special to adjust camber? And will this cause faster tire wear in the rear? What camber specs would I be looking for if needed? Thanks again
