I was gonna say 265/35/18.

Is your car lowered? M-sport suspension?

I have the B-12 Kit. I'm not sure I could get 265's on a lowered sedan. 255 - yes

I have the M Sport but at my location this model was not fitted with M Sport Suspension when manufactured. So my vehicle is standard from the factory.

I also went up one size on the front and fitted 235 x 40 x 18

Hmm. Good to know.

When my tires wear out, I'm getting new 18" rims.

I might buy 313 wheels. Probably try & get four 18 x 8.5. I know from the factory they were 8.0 in the front & 8.5 in the rear.

Not sure if I will go 235/40/18 in the front & 255/35/18 in the rear or just go 245/40/18 square.

Not sure if 245/40/18 is too big on the front with 8.5" wide rims? I have the B-12 Kit. I'm fairly positive my car is lower than any car with the standard M-sport package. I know my car is lower than a 335is.

When I got my car, the previous owner had 255/35/18's on the front.....surprisingly, they didn't rub....but they just didn't need to be that wide. I replaced them with 235/40/18.....and the car seems to steer and handle much better without those big wide tires on the front.
