6 series wheels on e90

Hey Guys,

Hopefully you can help me out and sorry for my ignorance. I am new at this. I wanted to put my buddies 07 650i (121) rims & tires on my 08 335i. Judging by most of the posts on the site, it looks like it cannot be done. However, I've seen multiple 335's with this setup...

Can anyone help? Here is the info

Current Stock Setup
Front: 225/40/18
Rear: 255/35/18

New Setup
Front: 245/40/19
Rear: 275/35/19

Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

The tire sizing is way too large for the wheel specs. Style 121s are 19x8.5 ET14 and 19x9 ET18, which is a pretty aggressive fit as is. The tires are too wide, and too tall, for a setup like that. It's going to rub, and it's going to throw off your speedo.

Would it be possible if the fenders were rolled and I got performance tires?

That's definitely more aggressive than I'd recommend, but it's not like people haven't run specs like that before. You'll need some stretched tires and fender work to fit them. Whatever you do, don't run the tire sizing that they come with.

You would probably want to run a 225/35/19 and 255/30/19 and roll your fenders.
