E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: 2008 135i
Winter tire size question

So this is the first winter with my 135i and thinking of picking up some winter tires. Someone is selling a pair of 225/40-18x8 and 225/40-18x8.5 winter setup. Any ideas if this combination will work on a 135i? Will the 225/40-18x8" fit in the front? I believe the stock size is 225/40-18x7.5 for the fronts. Thanks in advance.

If the wheel offsets are close to +45mm, they should work.
