E36 Sedan + 17x8.5et13 + 235/40?

Doable? Or am I just going crazy? I have shitloads of room up front (adjustable camber) but the rear is the sticking point. I really want to run some real tires on my next set of wheels but this might be too much to accomplish with a roller. I have the springrates to keep the tires off the fenders if I get enough room out back, maybe some more camber will help? Anyone have experience going that aggressive on the back of a sedan?

Hmm, not sure how different a sedan is but based on my experience with a coupe i'd say it
would only be doable with a fender pull in the rear.

I'm running 235/35/18 on 18x9 at et 30. Stock -1.9 rear camber, stock front camber.

According to my calculations the rim will be about 11mm further out than mine in the rear, but you'll also have no stretch like mine to bring the tire in. At et30 I was rubbing rim, your tire/rim will be 11mm further out than my setup.
So basically you gotta make up 11mm by either pulling the fender, or running more camber to make that up.

With enough camber you should be fine in front. I'm thinking 2.5-3

I'm going to have to test fit it extensively in the back. One of the reasons I haven't bought tires yet. One part of me just wants to grab some 215/40's and call it a day, but then again I'd love to run some real tires and not have to worry about swapping back and forth. Only issue is the 235's I'm thinking of all run wide (RT615k, RS-3, Star Spec, etc). Blah. I know that I won't have any issue at all up front.
