18" M5 style wheels

Hey guys I ran across this the other day on ebay and was wondering if I would be able to fit them on my F30 luxury line without having to purchase new tires. Any thoughts?

well according to the Compaitibility calculator right there on the listing. It says no for a 328. So i would call or email them to be sure.

The bigger issue is that they're staggered. I'm guessing your current set up is not. If not, you wouldn't be able to use your current tires.

I agree with BavarianFanatic. 225 tires may be a little too narrow for the rear's 9" width. The offset will work though.

These will work. I've ordered them for my car. Did it for my winter tire setup on my F30 M-Sport.

225/45/18 up front.
255/40/18 in rear.

did you use your current tires or purchased new ones?
