just wondering if anyone here knows if my set of 18*9's will fit on my 325i which has H&R springs and rolled fenders. I had 19" wheels on it and they fit fine with 245's. I am just curious as to if they will be ok on the fronts with the fender. the rears will fit i know this already.

The width sounds like it's too wide. What was the width of the 19"s? Also would depend on the offset.

when I said "too wide" I meant for the front. The offset is still a factor.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.

The width of the 19"s were 8" i believe. I had 245's all around and they fit more than fine. I was going to go with a 245 in the front and 255 35 in the rear on the 9" wheels so the front would have a real similar tire as before but an inch less in diameter.

they are also staggered wheels 3" lip for rear, 2.5" lip for front.

just got back from belle tire. picked up a set of Toyo Proxies T1S for $614 out the door. 2, 255 35 18 and 2, 225 40 18

we hoisted the car up and took off the drivers side front wheel to put the roja up and check the clearance. It is damnn close from our view point even though we weren't able to compress the car and see what its actually going to do since the tires won't be available until tommorow. I'll post results.

It's going to be close, I believe. I don't remember anyone with 9" wide tires on the front, doesn't mean there aren't any.

Dado has 18 * 9" wheels all around. He just told me last night his offsets for all are 45 so he can rotate them.
