E90 aggressive wheel fitment

Hey guys,

I've been trying to find some information on fitting a certain size wheel to my lci e90 sedan but can't seem to find what I'm looking for…

I have a set of M parallels from a 7 series and am wondering if they will fit

18x8 with 13 offset
18x9.5 with 25 offset

I know this is pretty aggressive because the recommend offset is around 30-40 but because of the smaller wheel dimensions is this possible?

The rear fenders are already rolled, would I have to do the same to the front to make them fit without rubbing?

Thanks!

The rears will be fine as long as you stay reasonable, 255-265 .....the fronts will be tight. If you go with a 225 40 it MIGHT fit depending on tire brand.

Okay that's what I was thinking, I also did some research and it seems like the wheels will only be pushed out 2 cm over the stock wheels so hopefully it will fit!

Thanks for the input!

It's hard to say on this fitment as they are very aggressive offsets. If it were me I'd try 255 35 18 and 215 40 18 on front to be on the safe side.... that et13 is very aggressive.....but it might just work ☺

I have 18x8.5 and 18x9.5 et20 235 40's rubbed in the front 225 40's do not so with the 8 wide and a 225 40 ( 1 MM extended difference ) you MIGHT rub slightly due to the tire not being as stretched, but it will prob only be at full lock with NEW tires.

Also....is your car xdrive? need to watch the tire sizes to stay within the 1% to keep it from going nutty...lol. There is a calculator at the top of the wheel and tires forum on this site that's pretty useful.

No it's not an x drive, I'll have to check out that thread and see if it's possible!
