Yep. 8x18 front, 8.5x18 rear. :thumbsup: I just checked and I was right about the insets.

I'm running 162 staggered at ET24 all round with a 215 and a 225.

You'll be fine upfront on a 225, however you may need a 245 on the rears

The ET Chimp has quoted includes his spacers. The wheels themselves will be 34/37. :thumbsup:

You should be OK. Try looking around/asking on E46Fanatics or Bimmerpost - a quick look on Google Images came-up with several pics from both of them.

Guessing it's the same 255/35/18 rear tires means your wheel will stick out a further 13mm over standard MV1/2 alloys, should be fine on your car as you've already rolled the arches.... should fill the arch without need for further spacers.

For future reference have a look on the below site to check fitments

Not sure if you've seen the brilliant site listing all the OEM BMW wheels with sizes (inc tires) along with weights and offsets - http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

Fitted these style 162's yesterday, well happy but got slight rubbing on rear arches? Running 255/35x18 rear and 225/40x18 front, they really fill the arches and look so wide....

Yeah lowered on P.I. springs but my arches are still standard, hence the rubbing. Going to attempt to fold the rear aches back this week???

They look so good on maxis

That's made me want them now more than ever

Easy to clean ;-)

Cheers pal.

Has anyone adjusted their rear camber to full negative so their rear wheels clear?
