8.5 +40 on sport suspension or H&R cup kit will be fine.

225 or 235/40/18 would work perfectly fine.

For the Non-M Coupes, what tire sizes are you running for 18x8.5(+40) / 9.5(+33)? I'm trying to figure out what I can get away with if I roll/pull the fenders.

Unfortunately not pics here in Steel Blue... thats definitely a more tough color to find.

The rear size is extremely aggressive and will not work with anything wider then a 245 tire. Fronts will be fine with a 235 tire.

That has me thinking about those for my '01 AW 325i...it sits kinda low with the stock sport suspension, as low as I can deal with around here anyways!

I wonder if it is worth it to go staggered on my car.....hmmm

Ok do you have any more pictures of this alpine white? I really like those wheels but want to see them from different angles before I make my mind up on them. Thanks VMR for helping me find so many ways to spend my money!!
