Do you guys think you can get a fitment done with pictures for 245/40/18 275/35/18 on 18x8.5 ET35, 18x9.5 ET35 done for a F30 335i xDrive? I want to see how it looks like with that offset in the rear.

So these 18x9" ET30 wheels won't rub at all for track use? Looking at 9" ET30 for either SM-10 or ARC-8. Thanks!

Thanks for the post! The 18x9.5" ET35 is unfortunately far too aggressive for a stock-body F30. The most aggressive trouble-free fitment we produce is in our EC-7 design with the following specs:

Front: 18x9" ET42 with 245/40-18 tires
Rear: 18x9.5" ET43 with 255/40 tires
*The car has KW V3 coilovers with -0.7 front camber and -1.9 rear camber.

Here are some photos:




Rear fitment:


Front fitment:



There are some more photos and specs in this post too.

The 18x9" ET30 can require negative camber up front, and sometimes rolled rear fenders depending on ride height and tire brand/compound. it's a fairly easy fit, but not a true guaranteed fit like the 18x9" ET42.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions!

I love the SM10's but I must wait for spring. I hope there will be a group buy at that time!

My friend has ARC8's on his E46 325 and EC7's on an E46 M3. It will be great to have the latest design. I'll definitely email pics from a photoshoot when the time comes.

How about the fitment of 18x9 ET30 255/40/18? I believe you guys have that for the SM-10 right? I know 245/40/18 fits flush and doesn't rub at all but I'm not sure about 255.

Thanks for the post! The SM-10 is indeed available in 18x9" ET30, and with 255/35-18 tires it should be doable on a stock car. On lowered suspension, some negative camber up front will most likely be needed, in addition to rolled rear fenders to ensure no rubbing.

For reference, our "direct fit" setup for the F30 is the 18x8.5" ET35 with 235/40-18 tires.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any additional questions!

Was wondering if you guys would make the same sizes as I was hoping to run 235/40/18, 275/35/18 (same sizes as my 19s were, just 18s instead) and don't want the rear to poke too much.

Do you guys think you can make the ET42?
Looking also to downgrade to 18" with some track radial tires, but 9.5/10 with 35et no no no, will poke like hell. C on, give as 42-45et to be able to put 285-305 tires for good grip. Thats PS2 live. lol

Thanks for the posts! We don't quite have an ETA yet for the 18" SM-10 in these sizes, just the EC-7 is available at the moment with an 18x9.5" ET43.

We'll be sure to post an update here when we have a more firm date for those sizes.

Thanks,
Dylan
