This probably a pretty common question, but will these wheels fit on my 2004 330i ZHP?
I'm currently running Michelin Pilot Super Sports 225/40Z18 on the front and 255/35Z18 on the back, and just want a new wheel for a change
Will VMR V710 fit my current tires?

These are the ones that I'm looking at, my only concern is that I can't find them in 18x8, and I'm almost positive that my front wheels(style 135) are 18x8. Will 18x8.5 fit all around the car?
Thanks guys, a lot of questions I know, but I would really appreciate some help

The short answer is yes, an 18x8.5 wheel is an easy fit. The 255 tire makes it a bit more complicated in the rear depending on your ride height and whether or not you are willing to roll the fender lips.

I'm now running an 18x8.5 et35 225-40-18 combo on the front of my 330i with no issues at all. Depending on ride height, that same 18x8.5 et35 will be pretty tight on the rear with a 255 tire unless you do a fender roll. The 255 might not rub at stock ride height, but if you are lowered at all, it will likely rub a bit.

Thank you so much, I think I'm going to end up rolling my rear fenders either way. And I am currently lowered so maybe some ride height adjustment is in order :p

If you are going to roll the fenders anyway, then why not do the 18x9.5 et45 size in the rear? I think it would actually fit better with the 255 tire because it would pull the centerline of the tire inwards and reduce the outside tire bulge.
