We installed the 18x10 and the fit seems fine. I drove with them a bit and could not feel or see any rubbing, even at full lock. The car has a stock setup, including camber. "BMW M Power Mexico" mentions some slight rubbing. This may be due to the 1.4 deg camber he is running.

BTW, big thanks for "BMW M Power Mexico" for a nice writeup. Very helpful.
You're welcome.

I think the rubbing in my case is because the BF Goodrich R1 tires are larger than the Nittos. I remember there is a thread about that somewhere in the forums here.
