18" Tire Size for E90

I have an 06 325i Sport Package sedan that I am upgrading to 18" rims. I already have the rims. They are 18"x8 on the front and 18"x9 on the rear. What sizes should I run. Car is stock sport package.

I'm not sure the stock size would be accurate. Isn't the stock sizing for 18" rims based on 8" wide? Mine are 9".

If you are running a staggered wheel setup (8x18 front and 9x18 rear) then the tire sizes suggested by T.Dot_E30 is correct.

Front: 225/40R18
Rear: 255/35R18

Great. I was wrong in assuming that the 255/35/18 was for 8" rims. Thanks for the info. Now I can buy tires
