Question Advice needed on 18" square wheels set up!

Hello all, I'am about to order some M6 replica wheels for my e92 335xi was wondering is it good idea to go with a square set up with 235/40/18 tires all around?

You might want to consider 245/40/18 if you go with a square setup. My wife's Mercedes E350 4Matic has 18-inch wheels with 245/40/18 all around.

Your car front and rear wheel wells will be able to handle that size without rubbing, if the offset of the wheel is not too aggressive.

18x8.5 ET35 all around won't be a problem with those tires, OP.

You could even run a spacer in the rear to make them more flush with the fenders.
