Question Wheel HELP!

dumb question but i have the OEM Type 162 (Front: 18x8 ET34 225/40 R18) (Rear: 18x8.5 ET37 255/35 R18) that came with my BMW 335i. Im looking to get new VMR v710 rims, would my tires on my original rims fit the VMR v710 18' rims?

Yes. Im guessinng you are thinking of getting the 8.5 wide front and 9.5 wide rear? You get little bit streched tyres, but nothing major, besides you can choose the lower offset when you have narrower tyre.

What E9X you have? Pre-lci or lci?

I mean that you can fit, better offsets than the basic et35, since you have little bit stretch on tyres, it gives you more clearance and you can push the wheel more out with lower offset.
In your case, i would choose 18x8.5 et20 225/40/18 front and 18x9.5 et22 255/35/18 rear. This would be pretty flush with fender. You might need slight fender roll to rear. Are you lowered?

This car has those specs that i mentioned above, but 235/40/18 rear tyre.

Of course these are personal preferences. That's only my opinion, if you don't want that "Aggressive flush" specs. You can ask what Vmr will suggest to you. (which will be et35 front and et33 rear)

But to answer your original question 225/40 is fine on 8.5 and 255/35 is fine on 9.5.

You can definitely reuse your factory tires. We generally recommend a 235/265 stagger though. Yours would just be slightly stretched in comparison.
