Mein Auto: '11 335d
Correct tire size for 18" wheels

Looking to replace my 18" style 195.

Will 225/40 fit on a 18X8.5
How about 255/35 on 18X9.5

Would prefer to use my current rubber as they have less than 8k miles on them.

I have a 2011 335d with ZSP

Yes, 225/40 on 8.5" and yes, 255/35 on 9.5"

the "correct" answer is to consult the mfr's specs for the particular tire that you're interested in, but the above should be the answer in any event.

Sizes look good.
