I didn't find enough information to make me 100% sure that there wouldn't be any issues going from 225/45R17 to wider and slightly taller 235/45R17 tires on my 2011 328i E90. I did it anyway and it's all good. The fit is fairly neutral on these 8" wide wheels with no stretch or bulge. The tires are more prominent and some may not like the look. Probably wouldn't notice the tires as much w/o the extra rubber that the Michelin pilot sport AS3+ (and other performance tires) have for "curb guards". I like that the ride is a little smoother over bumps but this may be due to non run-flat tires.

Sorry for the images...need an easy way to correct the upload orientation!

My E92 335i is running on 235/45/R18 regular tires on all four corners. Been doing so for years and never had an issue.
