Apex Black Friday Purchase Pending..

So we recently bought a set of Apex EC7's in 18x8.5 ET35 and 9.5 ET35 and run them on our 3.0si coupe with the standard 225/40 and 255/35 sizings. Very happy, fill the arches nicely with 10mm spacers front and rear.

With a Z4M coupe on the horizon and the pricing offered think we will further bolster the US economy with the purchase of a set of ARC8's in 18x9 ET30 and 18x10ET25, and fit standard sized 224/235/45 F and 255/40 rear tyres.

Naturally the ability to swap the wheel tyre combos between the two cars is attractive, and my questions are:
Is 9 inch just a tad wide on the front for the 4M, and with the EC7's on the 4M will I need the spacers too, maybe on the front but not the rear?
No plans to lower ride heights etc or fit coilovers.

Couple of cellphone pix, colour is nachblu.
Thank you for reading, all advice taken on board,
Bill

If you have proper tire sizes along with some camber, those measurements will be fine. Im running the 9 et30 + 10 et25 and they look great.

Sitting on Cup 2s with 245/40 and 265/35, lowered 0.7 and -2.5 camber up front.

I do like the hard top, its best of both worlds. And practical too in that when it's on I don't need to worry about water drainage/pooling in the trunk.

Grigio Telesto wrap job.

So purchased in HyperBlack Arc8 18x9 ET42 (because bbk) and 17mm spacers for front
and 18x10 ET25 Rear. Gives me the option now to switch both sets from 4C to 4M.

Be a good chrissy prezzie....
