One vender has pricing "under $3,000" so it's prety good pricing too.

+1 ... on weights

and that 18x9.5 et15 is a tough offset to fit 265 or 275 r-comp in the front for e9xm3 .... et25 would be ideal.

as far as OD .... anything under 26" is fine up front.

The width also matters right?
Its further away from the strut the +22 offset which is optimum but much closer to the fender. I'm pretty sure the fender has plenty of space. Anyone can educate me on how its gonna rub?

of course width matters ....
and also, the same size tire can have different widths (up to 1/4"). For example: the Michelin PS2 265/35/18 has a width of:10.7" .... while the Continental ContiSportContact 2 has a width of: 10.4"

so ur looking for 4 factors:
- tire size
- tire's section width
- tire's overall diameter OD
- Wheel's width
- Wheel's offset

you have the OE wheels/tires dimensions as a starting point ... then you work ur measurements from there.......

......but i cheat by asking fellow forum members who have spent lots of time & $$$ on different wheel & tire combos.
