I love my set of Apex Arc-8. Specs are 18x9.5 Et35 and 18x10 et25. Got it to fit by running -2.7 camber on the rear and 225/40 in front and 245/40 in the rear. Sits nice and flush. No rub with no finder roll. 😁😁😁

For a daily/commuter LCI E90 with occasional spirited driving, we'd recommend the following:

18" Square Fitment:
Front/Rear: 18x9" ET30 with 255/35-18 tires
* This is a direct fit with no spacers or modifications required.

Here's a photo showing this fitment with our SM-10 wheels:


Let me know if you have any additional questions!

Hey Dylan, I narrow down my wheel choices to apex SM-10 or Arc-8.
I really like this fitment for my set up, but my car is 2011 e90 LCI X-drive on ST-coils. I was wondering if it would be a direct bolt on.?

Thanks

Typically, yes. However, with ST coilovers, you may need 3mm or 5mm front spacers depending where your lower spring perch is sitting with your ride height. We recommend being prepared to either run spacers or raise the car slightly if any rubbing occurs. This is only a concern for the front. The rears will be a direct fit.

what is the point of putting 245s on the back of 335s ?? you are essentially putting a narrower tire than stock, just so you can run 10 inch wheels ??? say bye bye to traction

I have 245s on the back of my 335, and its true it shreds the tires with TC off haha. But I got the PSS 245s with the wheels for a great price. As soon as I burn through the set, I will upgrade to wider tires

I agree, and find the "will it fit" threads frustrating when someone chimes in that they fit their 22x16 ET5 wheels...an exaggeration, of course...but whatever crazy wheel they've got on their car requires stupid camber and a narrow tire stretched beyond comprehension.

Thereís nothing wrong with 245 on the rear. It looks just fine and itís only a mild stretch. I hook just fine with 400hp. I know one thing for sure, tires cost less at 245 😂 so if you donít drive much it will last a while.

Haha I have the same on my stock 189s, when I bought them the 245 MPSS were like $60/tire cheaper than 255. I hook up fine at ~380whp and the ease of spinning them is fun with people in the car.
