Fitment questions??
 
I have been trying to find a tire fittment guide to see what tires I can run on my 325i e46 that has been lowered 2"!
I have a staggered set of 18x8.5 18x9.5 with 35 offset.

I have read that 225/40/18 for the front and 245/35/18 for the rear... will this work or will I have rubbing issues? Thanks for your help!!

The front wil be fine. If the rear is dropped 2" as well you will need to roll your rear fenders and increase the negative camber. Even then, there is a chance for rubbing under compression or a full load.

So the 245/35 would work if I roll the fenders? (But might rub like stated)?
