Exclamation E92 Fitment ???: 18x8.5 ET13 & 18x10 ET25 - need hub adapter too :-(

Hey folks,

I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of wheels within the next day or so. I looked around and searched all over this site and I'm getting mixed reviews. The kicker is I just found out the wheels I'm buying are a 74.1 hub...not 72.56!

The setup is kinda aggressive:
-Front: 18x8.5 ET13 245/40/18
-Rear: 18x10 ET25 265/35/18


The widths are ok with me...it's the damn offsets. Plus I'll have to buy adapters and I have no idea where to get a set so I don't know how thick they usually run!

I have an E92 with ZSP (Sports Suspension). I plan on dropping the car on H&R Sports within the month.



Am I doomed? I've read some threads about people rolling the fenders and others saying nothing worked...



Thoughts?

If you have to use adapters, your already aggressive offsets will effectively become more aggressive. This setup won't work.

Actually I was wrong...I don't need adapters...just hub rings. Just found out!

So no additional hardware being added


Would it work now??

yeah u just need hubrings. adapters only if the bolt pattern is different (which its not).

+13 is pretty damn aggressive for the front and u cant roll our plastic fenders with our e92's id run 235 tires, maybe even stretched 225s and camber those suckers in.

8.5" et13 is not bad. I have 9.5" et19 with 225 no problem.
225 on 8.5" is NOT stretch.

Like you found out, you just need hubcentric rings 74.1 -> 72.56

The rears are no problem, just run a 225 up front.

Thanks.

I thought you had an E90?

I'm trying to run this on an E92...which doesn't allow as much room vs an E90.

E90 LCI and E92 are nearly identical.

Yeah, do the 225's in the front and it should fit fine and look good, alot better than flush rear/sunk front that seems to be popular on e9x.
