Will 9,5x18 ET 35 clear the coilover on a non M?

My questions is, will a 9,5x18 ET 35 wheel fit in a non M e46 coupe fitted with KW v2 suspension without spacers?

My doubt is only on the front.

The tyre size would be 225/40.

If someone has that info I would appreciate that.

It will probably depend on how low you are. Do you have the wheels with you?

Nop I don't have the wheels with me.

I wanted to know so I could buy them.

I wanted to run 9,5x18 ET 35 on the front and 10x18 ET 20 on the rear.

I'm as low has it is possible on KW v2 coilovers.

I'm thinking if that's the issue to remove the helper spring.

youll prolly just barely clear, that was my case with those specs in the front so i put a 5mm spacer on and it was more than perfect. im bumping up a little more though to flush my fenders and rim lip. but 5mm up front will be golden if you just want to clear. are you running a stretched tire? because thats a must
