Thanks

You'll need spacers.

Hi there,

The wheel sizes and offsets you listed are actually our 1-Series specific wheels, and have pretty high offsets to be an ideal fit for your 335i. While they technically could fit, they would require pretty large spacers to do so. 12-15mm front and at least 20mm rear would bring the wheels out to where they need to be. However, I would not suggest running that setup over a more ideal fitment applicable to your specific vehicle.

A more ideal fitment for your E9X, using those same widths, would be the following:

Front: 18x8.5" ET35 or ET38 with 235/40-18 tires
Rear: 18x9.5" ET35 with 265/35-18 tires
-Direct fit.
-245/40-18 front tires can be used.
-275/35-18 rear tires may require rolled fenders and/or negative camber
depending on ride height.

Hope this helps!

My colleague's recommendation above is a great place to start. That is a great bolt-on fitment. If you'd like to take a look at some of the other options we offer check out our fitment guide: https://support.apexraceparts.com/hc...-Fitment-Guide

Thanks

If you're really pushing 600bhp, you may want to think about brakes more than wheels.

Thanks for the FL-5 group buy.

Here is my apex wheels just installed yesterday. I'm loving the meaty look and these things ride way way more comfortable compared to my old 19"

Happy to hear you're enjoying the new setup!

I'm sure it drives just as good as it looks!
