E93 fitment questions

Just bought a set of Cosmis R1's from a member here (Dino335). They are 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear 35mm offset all the way around. Currently the fronts have 225s on them, and the rears have 245s. With the purchase, he also threw in a brand new pair of 255s. Would it be a good idea to put the 245 tires up front and 255s in the rear? Car is pre lci e93 328i.

I also have a pre-LCI E93 328i. I'm on 18x9 +30 245/40R18 in the front and 18x10 +25 275/35R18 in the rear, lowered on coilovers, with camber at -1.5 in the front and -1.8 in the rear, rear fenders rolled.

Really depends on a lot of other factors, such as how low you are, whether your fenders are rolled, etc. etc.

With that being said, I see no issues with your wheels fitment-wise in terms of rubbing. You might want to look into 265 in the rear instead though.

Garage List
Like above + 255 don´t look very nice on a 9,5´´ rim imo (too stretch)...
It is not just about the width, you have to match the profiles of f/r...
The regular combo is 225-255 or enlarged Alpina style 235-265... it is rather complicated to match those other combinations to have the very same wheel radius...

Thanks for the advice guys. For now, I'll put the 255s on and when it's time to get new tires I'll look into 265s (It dosent take me too long to go through a set of tires). As far as suspension goes I'm pretty much stock. I have a set of H&R lowering springs I might throw on until I get coil overs.
