I have the same rims for my car (2001 325ci) and am wondering if I can go with 255/35-18 on them all the way around with out rubbing.
Stock Tire diameter is 25.0
235/40-18 is 25.4 (wifes car)
245/40-18 is 25.7 (I think it might be to tall)
255/35-18 is 25.0
Tires she has and I want are Kumho Ecsta 4x
The minimum recommended rim width for mounting on 255/35R18 tires is 8.5" wide. For 8" wide wheels, stick with 235/40R18.
