Question Quick question... about E36 rim fitment PLEASE!

I am curious to know if 18X8.5 with 225/40 r18 will fit my 96 vert?

I am running H&R race springs.. drop is pretty low.

Couldn't find the answer searching through the forums, so would really appreciate some advice/ help.

I'm thinking I might be able to fit them with a fender roll, but just want to be sure. I know on my last vert, I rubbed a little prior to rolling fenders, and I was running 17x7.5 (i think) LTW's.

Anyway, any advice/info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Yes. They will fit.

I had M3 LTW H&R race (lowest springs H&R makes for the e36, at least in front) on with my 18x8.5 e39 M5 reps, et38. The rears rubbed a tiny bit with my 235/40/18's, if you run 225's you'd very likely be ok. Fenders were obviously rolled.
