So just joined today but I've had my 2006 e90 325i for a couple weeks now. The local BMW guy here in Moncton "Mike" has fixed my parking break and fixed all dash symbols and is replacing all shocks and struts and one abs sensor. Really cheap compared to pricing I've read open here. My question is tire and rim related though. I have the stock rims with 205 55 r16 and new perelli's but was also given a set of Motegi MR116'S WITH 245 40 r18's on them. Car is not lowered or anything yet but want to make sure there will be no imssues if i put the 18's on it. any thoughts and or advise is appreciated.
cheers ECC

Only thing you need to find for wheel fitment is what the stock lug spacing and offsets are for an OEM 18" wheel. (well, the width too, but if the first two doesn't match, it really doesn't matter)

I don't know offhand what the OEM 18" wheel sizes are, but according to http://www.motegiracing.com/wheelSpecs/2021/2247/6387/mr116
none of those sizes look anything like what I know to be the standard for any E90.

18" wheels would be offset 36, 18x8 front 18x8.5 rear. Bolt pattern is 5x120mm. Don't know what the center bore is - 60mm or so? 245/40 is not a standard size - front 225/40R18 rear 255/35R18. (all this for a staggered fitment.)
