Fitment of Blizzacks on OEM Wheel

I bought 4 pairs of Blizzak LM-60 245/40/18's for a set of wheels (18x8.5) that I had to return due to fitting issues on my E92 M3. I just purchased a set of E92 18" OEM wheels (18x8.5) and (18x9.5). Will the Blizzaks fit the rear (18x9.5)? It is recommended from 8.0-9.5 on the specs sheet but not sure if it will be too stretched. I tried returning 2 pairs to tirerack but was told they will not refund me. So I don't want to purchase a wider tire if it isnt necessary. Any help would be great! THANKS.

I have 245/40 Nokian Hakka R's on OEM 18s and they work great. they are pretty stretched in the back but no issues yet. They are also significantly shorter than the normal 265/40 rear so the speedo error is pretty obvious. If you can, get 4 OEM 18 front wheels and add some spacers to the rear for a perfect setup. If you don't want to do that, you'll be fine.

Why won't TR take them back? Are they a discontinued model?

The tires had already been mounted on my previous wheels. Tirerack said they wouldn't take them back.

Oh. I can't think of ANY tire place that will let you return tires that have been mounted. Wheels either.
