To do list:
UUC System U TDM- 3/05
M50 manifold converstion 3/05
off to the tuning shop for custom software 4/05
Cams/lightened flywheel, throttlebody........ well lets see what happens
I have 235/40/17s all around on a 8" wheel and it works fine, I was worried about the same thing so went with the little smaller tire in back. I also wanted all the same so that i can rotate my tires front to back(although i can't change sides).
as far as fitment in the rear of a 3 series car, 18"*9" wheels fit fine with 255 35 18. I can tell you that they wouldn't fit if my wheels offset was different. I have staggered roja Formula 5's and same goes for the fronts. 18" * 9" fits on the front but with a 45 offset. 37 is what I have in the rear and shows a 3" raw polished lip, where as, the fronts have just under a 2.5" lip.

Originally posted by chr328is@Apr 1 2005, 12:43 PM Right now I have 18x9 245 in the rear, and 18x8 225 in the front. I got them from tirerack, and I am running my stock suspension. No rubbing at all, BUT.... my fenders are rolled
It also depends on the exact offset of the wheel. 2mm offset difference.. is the difference between rubbing and not.
