18x8.5,18x9.5 wheel fitment on e90

Hi everybody, its my first post here and I am a new owner of a 2007 328xi sport package that I really loved.

I was looking to swap the stock wheels for some BBS LM replica 18x8.5+30 front and 18x9.5+35 rear wheels with tires size 235-40-18 and 265-35-18. I would like to know if this setup could fit without fender roll on this car with a lowered suspension (about -1.5'')

I would also really appreciate some good tires suggestions

Thanks!!!

Gabriel

He says that at the first sentence. 2007= Pre-lci. That setup would fit to LCI also.

The setup is almost the basic setup that vendors recommended. Except they recommend 35 front offset. Your setup will fit easily without any modifications. Here is few examples how it will look.

Great! That sounds perfect for me, maybe there is still enought place for spacers. I want the most agressive setup without fender modification.

Maybe 5-10mm spacer to rear, but can't be sure that it won't rub.
