David - to piggyback off of RPW44 post will there be a big difference between running ARC-8 17 x 9 et 30 with 245/40/17 on a e92 vs. e90? The stock tires i have are 225/45/17 on the style 194 wheels. Front is 17 x 8 et 34 and rear is 17 x 8.5 et 37. My goal is to get a little more meat on the tires and it seems like my car has enough fender clearance.

If I decide to lower the car with kw1 the minimum lowering for front is 0.6 inches. I really do not want to run any camber plates. Thanks!

There definitely is a difference between the e92 and e90 LCI models, as the sedans have an 8mm wider rear suspension tract, leading to the fenders having 8mm less clearance for wheels and tires. Because of this, the rears of the LCI models require a higher offset wheel, or to modify the fenders in order to fit the same fitment on the pre-LCI or coupe models. The 17x9.0" ET30 can fit on the rear of an e92 and e90 pre-LCI with a 255/40/17 street tire without any modification, while that is not the case for the e90 LCI.

The 17x9.0" ET30 ARC-8 is the perfect wheel for those that are looking for a dedicated track wheel that will save on consumables, especially since 17" tires are much more budget friendly than the 18" versions of the same width tires. The 17x9.0" ET30 with the 245/40/17 setup would be a great setup for those that do not have camber plates or aftermarket suspension, or do not have a dedicated track setup. Seeing that you are planning on getting camber plates in the future, you can fit a 255/40/17 on this wheel with added negative camber. These ARC-8's clear up to a 6 piston 355mm StopTech BBK. These are one of the most popular setups for the e9x non-M for dual duty and street use. The wheels sit very flush to the fender, and does not require any additional modifications for the tires to clear as long as you are using a street tire.

As for the 18" diameter, the only 9" wheel offered is the 18x9" ET42, which would require a spacer in both the front and rear, usually a 12mm. The fronts require the spacer for proper clearance of the strut with a 255/35/18 street tire, while the rear needs it so that the rear wheel tract of the car is in the proper place. There is the 18x9" ET31 that fits similar to the 17x9" ET30 ARC-8, but that fitment is only available for the EC-7 and PS-7 wheel models.

There are a number of wheels arriving by the end of the month, and some more a little after. There are multiple shipments including different wheel sizes and styles, with some arriving sooner than others.

For the ARC-8s, you would go with the 18x8.5" ET38 (Profile 1) and 18x9.5" ET35 (Profile 3), which would only allow for a concave rear. These will be the direct fitment on your car, but if you want it completely flush with the fenders you may need small spacers. The spacer size is dependent on the actual tires you put on the wheels, as different brands will have varying widths. Most people measure the clearance they still have after they have installed the wheels with tires on it for the best aesthetic look and flushness. We would recommend the 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 street tire sizes. Some customers have fit a 275/35/18 in the rear of your car, allowing for more rear traction, but that requires fender rolling for proper clearance.

David: That is exactly the setup I am looking for...I think. I have a 2010 335d with a stock suspension. Can I use the setup specified above without any modification, i.e., no spacers or camber plates. What size tire fits best? Can I avoid fender rubbing under a full load with the 17x9 ET30s?

Ready to pull the trigger.

The finish of the ARC-8's on that Space Grey e90 is Hyper Silver. The Hyper Silver and Satin Black finishes seem to be most popular for that color car.

In order for the 17x9.5" ET35 to fit on the rear of your car on stock suspension with 275/40/17 drag radials, you would need to at the minimum roll the rear fenders and dial in as much negative camber as you could with the stock rear control arms. If you do not want to dial in negative camber, the rear fenders would have to be pulled for proper tire clearance.

The car shown is using our ARC-8's in the 18x8.5" ET38 (Profile 1) and 18x9.5" ET35 (Profile 3) with 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 street tires on his pre-LCI e90. Unfortunately, the customer did not specify the tire make and model. The LCI models have 8mm of a wider rear suspension tract, thus 8mm less fender clearance on the rear, so to accommodate for this same wheel and tire fitment, one would need to roll the rear fenders heavily.

The ARC-8's only come in the Profile 1 and Profile 3 faces, so there is not a Profile 2 option for this wheel style. However, both the PS-7's and EC-7's do have a Profile 2 wheel fitment that would work on the front of an E90 LCI, as well as a rear fitment of 18x9.5" ET43 that would fit the 265/35/18 without a fender roll at stock ride height.
