18x10 ET25 ok for front?

I am ready to pickup a set of track wheel.

Looking at TR 18x10 ET25 mounting on either R888 or R1 265/35 all around. I know the rear should be ok but how about the front.

Any picture of 265 front with 18x10 please post. Thanks in advance.

Here's a link to pics of the factory Bilstein E92 M3 at the ring with 19x10 BBS CH with 265 Pilot Sport Cups all around. I did not see any spacers or rubbing.

I think I fixed the links. Sorry, I had cut and paste from a discussion on the wheel forum.

Wouldn't happen to know the offset on those CHs would you?

Yeah, I have thought about calling BBS to see if that was a miss-print of the weight on the tire rack site.

did you end up with this setup? It sounds like the right call -- if it will fit...

I test fitted an 18x10 ET 40 with 12mm spacer (so effectively 28mm offset) on the front of my E90 earlier today and it fits fine. There is probably 3-4mm between the top inside of the wheel and the strut. I have not added any negative camber to the front yet either and it still clears the fender easy.

I just did a quick check and took them back off, but will post a few pics later next week.

The tires on them right now are 250/650/18 yokohama slicks which are about as wide as a 265 street tire. Ultimately these wheels are for my E36 and will be running 285/30/18 V710s, but I've got some life in the yoks still so I'll do a few events in the E90 with them.

I am looking into this setup as well. Anyone know the verdict? Will these fit without rubbing in the front?
