Just double checking, but the bmw 441m wheels are a straight fit for the m140i, aren't they? Anyone knows the fitment?
Yup, fine assuming stock wishbones.

8Jx18 ET34
8.5Jx18 ET47
8" et 34mm also fine with M4 LCA only and M4 LCA/TS upgrade - its what I ran on my car with both H&R sport springs and Birds B1S springs

8.5" et47mm = plenty of room at the rear for MPSS 255/35/18
Thanks boys!

Yes, 8,5 ET47 with 255 tyre wil be absolutely PERFECT! I love the way this car looks with wider rear tyres. :)

What wheels, sooty?

Also, have you noticed a difference in traction?

That was my old M135 which I no longer have..

The wheels were Advan RZ and tyres were Michelin Super Sport which I think are now no longer available I don't think..

Traction improved as you would expect but still got wheels to spin with JB4 map 5 with BCS SC and MP exhaust

I really like them alloys in gunmetal. Will try to find them online!
