Fitment Help

Hi guys, I hope this ain't too dumb of a question but I need help figuring out the right size wheels and tires I need on my 2011 335is. I'm currently on the stock suspension with the intention of going to a performance air set up down the line. I want to go for a flush or slightly tucked looked. I was wondering what size wheels some of you guys are running on your cars, also if I could get away without rolling the fenders I would love to do so. Also I would like to know if you guys prefer square or staggered set up. This car is my daily and does mainly highway and street driving, I try to get up the canyons as much as I can but its not TO often. Thanks for the help!

You want to put your daily on air?
Why not just get a nice coil over kit from Bilstein or something like that?

For a car that is primarily street driven with occasional spirited driving, I'd recommend a staggered setup. Square is usually preferred more for track/performance driving where tires get worn out faster, and thus the ability to rotate them front-to-rear is important to get the most life out of them. Street driving wears the tires relatively slowly and in this case you'd benefit more from the additional rear traction and better aesthetics of a staggered setup.

I recommend 18x9" ET30 with 235/40-18 front tires and 18x10" ET33 with 265/35-18 tires as a starting point for sizing. We have a fitment guide you can use for reference when shopping for wheels to get an idea of what widths and offsets will work, and when you'll start needing additional modifications such as camber plates or rolled fenders in order to fit some of the more aggressive sizes: https://support.apexraceparts.com/hc...s/360001673834

Please don't roll the fenders of a 6MT is. Waste of a rare car.

You can fit some pretty wide stuff on these cars with no rolling of fenders.
I run 19x9-ET30 up front o with 245/35 on my E90 (Pre-LCI)
I'm able to run a 19x9.5 ET33 in the rear with a 275/30 and no rubbing. No fender roll.

A LCI will need a different rear offset. I think a ET43 will allow a 9.5 and wide tire.
