Just thinking about upgrading my 16” alloys to 18” MV spokes on my 318 Ti Compact (new shape). I don’t think that any arch modifications will be required, but what about suspension mods? Has anyone here done this before or can anyone foresee any potential problems? I understand that this has probably been answered many times for coupe and saloons, but will there been any difference for a compact?
Thanks

should be no problem. front suspension is the same, rear does not turn so should not matter, but i have no knwoledge of the specifics (the rear suspension is completely different then e46 non compact). offset should be stock, if not all bets are off. i woudl not exceed 225/40 on these.
