Im thinking about getting the m3 reps from modbargins in 18x8 et35 square. Then the blizzak LM-22 235/40/18 to go with the rims. Is that the correct tire size for the rims I want? Also at what temps should I switch to the winters? Thanks

You are getting the wrong wheels for an e93 (or and e90 or e92 for that matter.

You generally need something between et18 and et25 in an 8 inch width.

Temps consistently below about 45 degrees.

If you are willing to run at least 12mm spacers on all four corners, you could make those wheels work.

Had our wheel fitment techs check all the 18's we have, and none clear the 380mm 6 piston kit. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

There is also 18x9 et20. I dont care about the rim details as long as its 18in. Now Im just trying to figure out whether Im required to get a staggered setup and which tires to put on those rims.

Why is this?

Stock 18's are 18x8.5 et29 and 18x9.5 et23. So going by this the et35 on 18x8 should work, however there would be a decent amount of gap between the fender and the wheel.

9.5s use et23 and 8s with et35, thats a 12mm difference in the offsets and the wheel width is 1.5 inches shorter so 0.75 inches shorter on the inside. 12 mm is about 0.48 inches so the inside clearance should be fine. The front should be ok as well.

Is there an issue with brake clearance?

The Sport Edition A7 referenced at the beginning of the thread is still available, and should be for most of winter 2010. There are some inconsistencies on the site with showing some of the winter wheels, so if you do not see them, feel free to call me to order.

TR Motorsports have some backorders going on, but we do have a couple sets of BBS for those who want a step up.

That will work, however you might check and see if the wheel is available in 18x 8.5 ET20 as a square setup.

OK, so long story short, how much is out the door a complete set of 18" with the square 235 Michelin PA2 and TPMS:

- at tirerack?
- at the dealer.... OK, got a ball park price: ~3,100 - 3,700 at the dealers. Set is mounted on the wheel style 270, including balance and TPMS.

Thanks!
