Another winter wheel/tire question

Sorry all, I know there have been a lot of these threads but I cant find the answer to this particular question:

I have a set of Dunlop 3D in 245/40/18 from my previous car and was wondering if these would fit (with 8.5" diameter wheels) on the M3/ZCP and clear the brakes. I assume that 8.5 inch wheels are the correct diameter for these tires, but probably could also stretch them to fit 9in.
Anybody have any experience with this setup?
thanks
ian

8.5" is a width not a diameter.

245/40/18 fits the M3. It's the stock size in the front (on 18 x 8.5" wheels).

The ZCP brakes are no different than the NON-ZCP cars. 18" wheels are available OEM and fit the M3 if they are the correct offset / width.
