    18 inch wheel fitment questions.....

    Does anyone here have apex arc 8's on a 335 coupe?

    I've decided that with all the 18 inch wheels on the market, the Apex arc8's are what I'm going with.

    I have a 2007 335 coupe and will be lowered on coils soon and don't ever plan on running a bbk. So I'm hoping some of you guys on here that understand fitment better than I do can give me some guidance.

    What offsets should I go with? What tire sizes? I met a guy with a mcoupe that had a set of arc8's and he told me the wheels start to have a nice concave look to them at a 9.5 width. Can I fit 18x9.5 fronts and 18x10 rears without rolling the fenders? I know you can't roll the front fenders on a e92 coupe.

    I won't be tracking the car but I want a light wheel with the mesh look and provides performance and strength.

    I want the wheel to really fill in the wheel wells, the tire to be real flush with the fender...I've really fallen for the look of a properly speced out set of 18's and some meaty tires. I see a lot of nice set ups on the m3 forums but not many 335's.

    Now I might get ccw wheels... Nice and light (19-20 lbs) a little more stylish and better suited for a street car

    Anyone have any experience with them? I won't get the stretched look, but will want a nice 18 inch wheel and a meaty tire.

    CCW makes quality rims. I've seen a set on an M3 as well as a dedicated drag racing set on a CLK 63 BS and this is exactly who I would have build drag wheels for me. Well made, light, and unique.

    The only thing I'm not sure about is the "chrome" look of the CCW wheels. I like brushed aluminum better.

    I'm honestly between CCW LM20's, Advan RS, and Apex Arc-8's. All 18 inch wheels, all light and strong.....I'm so undecided.

    I would think they can accommodate any finish you want.

    I've seen them in different finishes in person so definitely possible.

    CCW's are getting pretty popular these days with the e46 m3 guys, they are indeed very sick.

    Even in 19 inch, they are very light. I want a wheel that is light weight and looks good, there are lots of nice looking wheels out there but most of them are heavy as hell. I'm real surprised how heavy BBS Lm's are. I love those wheels but I wouldn't pay all that money to slow the car down.
