Wheel gurus please help

Post by the obese penguin » Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:23 pm

I have searched but if I'm honest the search function isn't that great.

Looking at a set of alloys for my 135 they are 8.5 x18 et38 front and 18x9.5 et43 on rear. They are listed as a fit for the 1 series but can anyone actually clarify if they will? If so what tyres would be the ideal fit

So much mis matched info online its irritating.

Thanks in advance.

They are right on the limit but should fit as long as you don’t run spec R tyres?

I have 8.5 et40 front with 225/40 and 9.5 et45 rear with 255/35 rears (R spec tyres). The rears rubbed very slightly but it would have been ok with ‘normal’ road tyres...

Should be fine with a 225/40/18 front and 245/35/18 rear.

255/35 rear might just clear if you're not lowered too much.
