17" Wheel & Tire Setups on E90 [PHOTOS]

Ordered a set of Apex ARC-8 17x9 Square which should be here today and wanted to know what tire set ups everyone is running so I know what I'm able to clear without rolling fenders before I go buy tires.
I think I want to run 235/45r17 Federal 595 RS-RR's I know they run bigger than others but will I have any rubbing issues? I'm currently on stock sport suspension I have a Pre LCI E90 but I do plan on gettin coilovers soon.

Please post photos of 17" wheel setups

Here's a photo of my build so far[IMG][/IMG]

I'm a fan of 17" rims for superior ride, lower weight, and "meaty" aesthetic.

Great choice on wheels. I'm running the same Apex rims, ARC8, 17 x 9, ET:30, with 5mm spacers in front (net ET:25) and 12.5mm spacers in the rear (net ET:17.5), 255 square, no rubbing. Tires are Bridgestone Potenza S-04 on the street, and RE-71R on track.

Apex stands behind what they sell with a terrific replacement policy. Bonus: this setup gets smiles and comments almost every time the car's out for a spin.

Congrats on the wheels! Pre LCI might be a bit different, you should definitely check with Apex on tire fitments for your car. I went with same as tetsuo111's setup. 17x9et30 ARC-8s with the 255s square. I love the grip on the turns and the fitment is perfect too. The meaty tire look is No rubbing or clearance issues for me with the B12 Pro Kit suspension.
