wider alloys and tyres set up

Post by freejumper » Wed Nov 15, 2017 3:13 pm

Hi guys,
I am looking for a set of wider alloys for my m135i. Atm, thinking about having front 18*8 and rear 18*9 from 2forge ZF1.
What would be best options for tyres, would 245 front 265 rear fit in the arch? Keep in mind, the car has been lowered by 25mm H&R springs all round.
Would appreciate if any of you and share you own opinion/experience. Thanks in advance :lol:

ET42 all round would be a nice fit, but you won't be able to fit a 265mm rear. A 255mm tyre might just squeak on, depending on the design/form of it's shoulder.

5x120 PCD for M-Lites.

Hi Jay,

As a go-by - see Sootyvrs' post of his white M135i with 8"/9" 245/265 tyre combo

http://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?f= ... n#p1141969

Fronts 8" et40mm
Rears 9" et 50mm

I have seen 9" et44mm with 255/35/18 rears and its tight so as MP says et 42mm might work with narrower tyre or one with a more rounded profile.

Here's my blue M135i lowered with Birds B1s pack 2 c/w M4 LCA and TS up front - to increase track and -ve camber - wearing oem style 397's which are wider F&R - F is 8" et 34mm and R is 8.5" et 47mm - with oem MPSS tyres but would have moved up to 245/35/255/35 MPSS F&R had I kept the car.

Thanks for the suggestion guys. I think I would need a bit more research. Ideally I would like to have at least 255 on the rear, stock 245 isn't wide enough to hope the torque from a jb4 :lol:
