I see! The white strip looks really good, so you definitely made a good choice by going that route.

My e46 has some already but what's the widest wheel size on 18s and tire set up I can put on my 135i without having rubbing problems? It's stock height right now but I plan on lowering it soon. I'm still debating on wheel style.

For a 1-series we recommend 18x8.5 ET45/18x9.5 ET50 with 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 tires. If you want to go with a 245/35/18 rear though to be safe you can. That sizing should work without rubbing on stock suspension but if you lower it we can't guarantee anything.

About to order set of silver VMR VB3s in 18x9.5 ET33 squared. Sitting on Bilstein PSS9s, just confirming I probably won't need spacers in the front. I've heard that I do and that I don't...

We brought in limited quantities of 19" V710s in hyper black for E90/E92 fitment before, and it looked pretty sweet. Unfortunately though we have not seen any additional quantities of them.

If you're interested in doing custom refinishing, we can have the wheels black chromed, which should come out similar. That process is quite pricey though.

So I'm looking to buy tires and have them ready for when I get my car back from the shop. My Car is lowered on coilovers and I want to make sure that I have no problems. Would a 235/40/18 be a safe size tire for the rears? (9.5) rear btw.
