My Ride: 325ci
Help tire sizing 325ci

I have a set of front 18inch M3 style 67 rims with a offset of 47, from the research I've done I know all all M3 fronts will fit. Next question would a square setup of 225/40/zr18 be ok?
My ride is a 02 325ci e46, I'm pretty sure this topic has been beatin from one side too another, I'm new to the e46 world just want to get the correct tire size for best compatible performance.

Yes, a square setup of style 67's with 225/40-18's all around will work well.

Buy light tires....
