OEM 359 on LCI 335i e92 (tires)

Friends, I have E92 335i LCI with M-sport suspension. In winter I got really good deal for OEM style 359 wheels, the problem is I need to restore them, repaint and I think they are a bit curved, also need new tires. So the investment will be near 1000euros.

The problem is I can't find the confirmation that these wheels will fit my car. There are lots of threads, discusions but no final words, what kind of tires must be used.

Can some one, WHO CERTAINLY KNOWS, can comment if they will fit my car? And what tires should I buy? What I have found they should fit with 235/35 and 265/30. THANKS

They'll fit the front no problem with slight rub against oil cooler grill during full lock in front passenger wheel well if equipped.

The rear is a different story. You'll need aggressive fender roll or opt for a shave like I did to get the most possible additional clearance.
As for tires a 265/30 is perfect but depending on tire brand like
Hankook vs Michelin

Hankook or tires alike have rounded sidewall giving slight stretch
Michelin or tires alike have a more squared sidewall which with this set-up every mm counts.

I'm running 265/30 MPSS in the rear with -2 degrees camber lowered on coils with a shaved fender without any issues at my current ride height.
I've been lower before and no issues at all with a more rounded sidewall tire but with something more square'ish needed to raise it up a little.

I'd say at stock ride height there shouldn't be any problem with either tire design but I don't know if there's a difference between pre LCI and LCI in the rear.

!LEFTCOAST! thank you so much! But I was thinking, because I am on stock M sport suspenion, maybe I won't need the fenders roll?

That's a good question. Honestly, I don't know because I was lowered before I ran them so don't have the experience at stock ride height.
Just guessing but I'd be incline to agree with you as the stock ride height is on the higher side. Maybe someone else will be able to chime in who knows for sure.
