Would I need camber plates for this? I don't really want to adjust camber from the stock specs. I have the wheels on my car right now with 255/35/18 Hankook R-S3's with no problem, but I'm not lowered yet.

I have room, I can even do a full lock turn... but I have very very little room. very little.
I want to measure it but don't know how..

but I also have an e93, which, from my personal experiences, has less clearance than e90/e92
People say I'm crazy, but I've done quite a few different wheel/tire combos on my e93 M3 and my previous e93 335... e93s have less clearance.

So you should be fine with a 265/35/18.
What are your alignment specs up front?
So, should I be on the safe side and get 245/40/18's? I don't really want to be playing with my camber, as I don't have any experience with it.

I just want to be able to run 265/35/18's up front without any issues of rubbing or having to adjust camber to get it to fit, and if any of those two things occur, I rather get a smaller size tire and not have problems.

As I said above, I have 255/35/18 Hankook R-S3's on my car right now with no problems, but I don't really want to run that because the OD of the tires is much smaller than stock sizes (0.69 inches shorter).

What do you think I should do? Oh and I have whatever stock alignment specs are.
