My Ride: 323i and Landcruiser
Lakeshore.......staggered or not

Okay this is my 2nd post here and I am still looking for some advice. I have a 99 323i with bent wheels and I ordered four new wheels from Lakeshore (18 by 8, OEM replica #135).

I have decided to go with the 225-40-18 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 from Tirerack..................but am now considering changing my order with Lakeshore and getting the staggered set-up with 18 by 8 in front and 18 by 9 in the back. Then when I order the tires I'd get 225-40's in front and 245-35's in the back.

Also should mention that I am upgrading my stock suspension with the Eibach Pro-System Kit.

Question is are there any concerns or negatives with going with the staggered set-up. And if possible can someone please post a pic of the staggered look on an E46. And finally does anyone know how long Lakeshore takes to deliver. Thanks so much..................and sorry for all the rambling but trying to get this put together for wife's birthday in January.

My Ride: rolls only Michelins
255/35r18 would be a better size for the rear.
