F30 on all wides?
#1
Hi guys,

I have the 2 rear rims from my old set of 441M's and was thinking of putting all wides on the car once my current tyres are worn.

Reason being so I could rotate tyres and get more mileage of them. Any idea if they will fit on the front without any clearance issues or will they require spaces? Also will it have any other effect on the car in terms of handling etc.?

My car is a base model.

Rim specs 18x8.5J ET47 and tyre 255/40R18

Thanks guys

I had 245s in front that sat flush with the front fender so 255 should be quite close. Perhaps take your current rears and do a test fitment.

However, if you go this route, you may need a set of spacers at the rear else they will look tucked in compared to the front and your car will look really weird with the setup.

Thanks bud. Will do a test fitment closer to the time but just thought I would check if anyone knows or has done this before in the interim.

You right hey will definitely have to get spacers for the rear to keep the staggered look. Never thought about that.

There is a tyre reviewer on YouTube that tested different tyre size setups. Cant remember his name. His personal car is a M3. He is a brit and has also been involved with car throttle vids so that's a place to start looking for him. Obviously I cant remember his conclusions regarding square setup vs staggered rim sizes.
