So I've decided on the 17" ASA AR1s.

I'm going to run 225/45 on the 8" front wheel and 245/40 on the 9" rear wheel.

I wanted to confirm with you guys that there won't be a problem with these sizes for my 325is with stock sport suspension...

Thanks for the help guys!

-Geoff

I think half the people are gonna tell ya what you want to hear, and the other half aren't.

There seems to be no general concensus on what the max size can be for the rear tires. my friend has 255X18 on his M3 with no rubbing, while another friend has 245X17 and rubs...

I've been told that 225 all around is the max you can go, but if you open your driver door and check tire sizes, you'll see 235X17 is within specifications for the car.

Be ready to roll to your fenders

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.

Yes, tirerack suggests it as an option for the rear... so i figure i'll be ok.

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.
