Need help!

Alright wheel/tire experts, I need some help here. And yes I've tried searching but couldn't find a definitive answer one way or the other. I'm looking at some new wheels and need to know if they'll fit. I'm looking at some 18x9 et35 all the way around. Probably going to run 245/40 if it'll fit. I have a 02 325ci with sport suspension. Thanks in advance guys.

Those should fit, but I'd suggest running a 235/40 instead of a 245/40.

Thanks for the quick reply Kevin. How much stretch would a 235 offer? I want to get a little bit of a stretch but nothing real drastic.

On an 18" wheel it wouldn't be very stretched at all.
