I was on 225 tyres on 8.5" ET38 and it was close if you look at my AC Schniter wheels posted on previous page but you may be ok (disclaimer)

Clearance wise - OK for rear but likely inside rim will clash with front strut - may need 10mm spacer.

Depending on wheel - you may need spacers anyway to clear the brake calipers

Wheels I am about to get are these on size 8x18" ET49. Wondering if they are good to go or not...

As Blind Pugh has already said, you will need 10mm spacers to clear the shock absorbers.

I'm about to buy a 135 but i feel the stock 18's and any 18's look too small on the car. I want to put some 19's on but i'll be honest, i'm pretty clueless when it comes to fitments etc - can anyone help on what i should be looking for and whether putting 19's on will cause any issues? I don't really want to tamper with much if it's not necessary

I'm looking for some wheels like these but struggling to find any online - if anyone can help with that as well it would be amazing!

Yep, wheels in first 2 pics are 624m in black, these are the bi-colour version

The last 2 pics are just Y spokes, many different types of those, I have these 18s on mine

As I said, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to wheels!!

I'm thinking of getting these - will these be ok without rubbing etc?

8.5x19 (Front) & 9.5x19 (Rear)

No, those Riva's won't fit nicely, expect rear arch contact.

Why not just go for the 624m's? They're a bog standard fit on a 1 series, and highly sought-after/resellable.
