No, you can re-use your stock tires. They just might be slightly stretched it all. Once you wear out those stock tires, then you can upgrade to wider tires

Would 18x9 ET31/18x9.5 ET22 a direct fit on a stock setup Z4M?

Will Gun Metal or Hyper Black color be offered in the near future?

thanks,

thanks,
18x9" ET31 is too aggressive for a stock Z4M. Camber plates would be a must to keep the wheel under the fender. 18x9.5" ET22 is a direct fitment for the rear.

Gun Metal is very similar to Anthracite. Hyper Black will not be offered.

How about the best fitment for an 07 non-M staggered with Eibach's?

For your car we would recommend an 18x8.5" ET35 with a 245/35/18 front tire and either an 18x9" ET42 or an 18x9.5" ET43 with a 255/35/18 rear tire.

Can't wait to get these on my ///M !!
I'm now going apex for street and track. The arc 8's for the track and these for the street.

Question is do I try and run 265's all round? I ordered 9.5et35 front and 10et25 rear. I have ground control coil-overs and I can currently just clear (slight rubbing) 255 30 front on the CH's.

My BBS CH' will be for sale: 19" 8.5 et35 and 10 et20 rear.

You can fit 265s up front with a spacer and camber; rear will be fine with 265s.

Yeah the rear I'm not concerned with as I'm fine with the 275 19's....up front I run -3 degrees so that should help.

I was just thinking about what I could be giving up by trying to stuff the 265 up front. I guess more tramline? I am just enticed by the idea of being able to swap tires( not rims) front to back.

If you would like to run a square combination the care will behave a lot more neutrally in that it will understeer much less. The -3 degrees of camber that you currently run definitely helps the performance of the car and aids in fitting the 265/35/18 tire and 18x9.5" ET35 wheel up front. You could run a 12-15mm spacer in the rear with an 18x9.5" ET35 to have approximately the same fitment against the fender as an 18x9.5" ET22. It is possible that you may experience more tram lining but the performance benefit will far outweigh any small stretch of road with inconsistencies that would cause tram lining.

Quick picture of the wheels getting installed. So far, couldn't be happier, the wheels are gorgeous, and two of the four didn't need wheel weights, which speaks volumes for the quality of the wheel and Michelin PSS's.
