17x9 ET30 square. 255/40-17 Proxes R888R.

Loving the way these sit on the car. This is my track setup so I went with the anthracite but when I pick up a matching size for the street I'll be going silver or hyperblack for sure.

I'm on Koni Yellows w/ Eibach Sport Springs and have M3 control arms + sway bar. No rubbing on the street or the track. They've been amazing and have a more comfortable ride than my 18" VMR 710 w/PS4s.

I can run these of full stiffness and have a better ride than my 18"s on full softness. 17" is definitely the way to go.

Can't wait to get the street setup soon!

It's the equivalent to our generations rain dance at this point

Hi Chuck,

The car looks great with the white on black color combo! The specs threw me for a loop after seeing the pictures, as I thought it was a normal LCI sedan. You nailed the conversion, nice and clean and you can hardly tell it wasn't a LCI car from the factory.

18x9 et 31 square, 255/35 Falkens all the way around. Front pokes out just a smidge but my friends say it's flush. Might get spacers on the back to even it out. Stock suspension.

I am going to order some FL-5 wheels shortly for my 07 rwd 328I touring pre lci. It has the factory sport suspension but I may go with some mild springs too. Its my daily and I dont want anything too crazy but I want it to look good.

Should I go with 18x9 et30 with 255 square or 18x9 et30 front with 245/40's and 18x9.5 et35 with 265/35 rear. I want them to site flush and have some decent tire on them, but not crazy aggressive since its my daily.

Thanks for the post! Both setups will work and be a direct fit without any additional modifications. The 18x9" ET30 and 18x9.5" ET35 are only 1.3mm different in terms of outer clearance, so visually they'll look the same on the car.

I'd recommend the square 18x9" ET30 setup with 255/35-18 tires since this is the best match to the OEM rolling diameter, and gives you the ability to rotate the tires front-to-rear to get the most life out of them.

The staggered fitment will work great too, but for a daily making stock power, the simplicity, slightly lower cost, and ability to rotate makes the square fitment a better choice.
