Another tire size thread...

I searched and can't find an answer for this specific set of wheels and offset's, if the answer is out there...sorry for asking again. I'm looking at a set of ASA AR1 18" wheels, 18x8 up front, 18x9 in the rear with a 45mm rear offset. The seller states these tires will work with any BMW, possibly with the use of a spacer. Tires are 245/40/18 up front (these shouldn't be a problem from what I understand), and 275/35/18 in the rear. I have a 325i sedan, not lowered yet but i'm on bilstein shocks if that matters, I doubt sedan's can fit 275's on the back but i'm just wondering...

Thanks man, I don't know if I'm ready to run an aggressive stretched setup yet until I'm dropped, for those interested it's a good deal, especially with tires someone in NC should grab these.

Oh well the tire sizes I listed wouldn't be stretched at ALL.

But seeing now that those are on an E39, it will require narrower tires creating a little stretch, ie a 225 front and 235 rear.
