Rim size

Was curious what is the widest tires I could do without rolling my fenders on my 03 325 coupe on TMS coilovers. Also offset 18x?x?


New to the wheel stuff.

how wide of a wheel would you be running.

the tire size you could run depends on a lot, offset, width, how low you are.

The rears are 255 forgot the front size. I haven't installed the coils yet, I'm waiting on getting some new wheels so I can just do it all at once.

Those sizes with offset of 35 front and 20 back would work fine?

I wouldn't recommend putting on an 18x9.5 ~20 rear with a 255 tire and no fender work. That will surely rub, especially if you're lowered.

Post up the wheel offsets when you get them. Any reason you don't want to roll your fenders?
