While I don't yet have an image of the 368x36mm kit behind a Style 260, here is the response I received from the man who leads these projects:

I have no info on the US wheel; all I can state is the European 18” & 19” look identical on the E92 M3.
It’s definitely the 18” because I took the photos and the actual profile from this wheel was used to detail the kit.
Zoom in on the tyre its marked 18”.
This was also the case on the E46 M3 / CSL models where both sizes looked identical.

I don't know the differences between the 18" wheel in the picture and the Style 260, but AP is getting no fitment complaints from owners with those wheels. I'll keep asking for pics anyway. We do know for sure that the 18" Euro wheels and the 18" N.A. market (run flat) wheels are different and made by different manufacturers.
