Default Wheel setup for 135i and suspension setup - 02-01-2018, 05:46 PM

Iím looking to get Kosei K1s with 275/40r17 on rear. Iím not sure if these will fit let alone on upgraded suspension. Was thinking of going with Koni yellow adjustables and swift springs. If anyone is running similar setup let me know if this will work, also what size front tire. Iím looking to daily my car plus take out to track on weekend for drag and road course. I donít want to roll my fenders or use spacers unless absolutely necessary.

I run 225's on my front wheels, and actually just put 255's (pilot super sports) in the rear earlier today. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think 255 is the widest a 1er can go without running into fitment issues. Although, upgraded suspension might create some extra room if you set it up right. I will try to get a pic later, but my 255's are pretty flush.
