Just ordered from bm auto sport, RIVA DTM CSL style wheels.

18x8 ET 34 with 225 40 18 tyres
18x8.5 ET 37 with 245 35 18 tyres

They fit the arches perfectly, very happy with them.

A big thanks to Mark & Carrie, fantastic customer services and they put up with all my emails and constant questions.

Hi - wheels look really good. With the offset of 34 on the front and the rim being an 8, how does the wheel and tyre look regarding the stance? Does it protrude much when looking side on or straight down from above? Some opinions are that an offset of 35 is border line regarding how much the wheel and tyre sticks out. From the images, it looks spot on but it is hard to tell properly.

E90 320si BBS 216s.. Fit great, a little shy up front but a small spacer would work great.

Are these different to the ones supplied on the 130i LE? Would you happen to know the weight?

Lower offset and half an inch wider I believe.. They arent the lightest, probably similar stock M135i alloys.

Would these fit an M140i running F235 / R255 width tyres?

Just fitted 255/35/18 on a 18" 8.5" ET44 wheel on front axle, with camber plate running 3.0 degree camber.
It clears with no fender mod, the wheel has 3mm clearance to the strut while the tyre has 2mm, I will put in a 3mm spacer later just for safety.

Would this have been possible without the camber plates? I’m looking to run the same setup on my M135i Xdrive (LCI), I don’t have camber plates but it’s sitting Low on a set of KW V1.

Well.... M135i is a different car I am not sure clearance data is comparable? :oops:
On the E87 I guess no, you must have full 3 degree camber to clear the fender, I am barely clearing it.
