If your suspension is stock then 265's on a 9.5" wheel will be very aggressive. It's not recommended. If you are going to daily drive your car with a stock suspension then the 18x9's are a much better front wheel with a 245/40/18.

If you give us a call I could give you much more specific recommendations based on your use of the vehicle, as it's difficult to generalize what will and will not work for members online.


Updated list

1. Jrotax101 - square 17x9 - hyperblack - M3forums
2. EYEHAVEYOU - square 18x9.5 - hyper silver - M3forums
3. ariddler - square 18x9.5 - hyperblack - Zpost
4. Will V - square 17x9 - Satin Black - BF.C

That is about what I figured, I just want a square setup with out having to run gobs of negative camber up front. Camber plates are in the works but I have not made my mind up.

I would like to order a set of 18x9.5's for my e36. I can only find two others running them with 245/35/18 would this work with ast 4100's? My fenders are rolled pretty good but I dont want to run to much camber in the rear. Right now I have -2.5 front -1.5 rear.

They should fit with a little massaging of the rear fenders with only 1.5. You may need -2.x rear. The fronts will just depend on the height of your spring perch and that will change the spacer required. With a wheel that big on the e36 body it's not just plug and play like some 8.5's, but they will fit as long as you're prepared to do some minor work.

the rears are rolled to fit 265's as the previous owner had 265's on the car at somepoint. so I am hoping running 245's should work with the more aggressive offset. I don't mind running a spacer in the front, I just want to keep the camber at a sane level in the rear as its my dd.

I posted photos of a 285/35/18 tire on 18x10 Apex Arc 8 wheels mounted to the front here:
http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthrea...335848&page=35 (post #348).

285/35/18 won't fit with stock suspension and camber.

I changed mine from 18x9.5 to 18x10 square, figure I know I'll go BBK at some point in the future so I might as well go 18x10 and avoid spacers front and rear.

We had a big shipping day yesterday (three UPS trucks picked-up packages). Members from a number of forums signed up, so I'll be updating the list later today.
