    Any E92 xi with Apex Arc 8 17" x 9.5" on all 4 wheels?

    I have a set of Apex Arc 8 17" x 9.5" wheels wrapped in Nitto NT555 255/40/17 up front and 275/40/17 in back. Waiting for camber plates from Vorshlag and wanted to know if anyone was running a similar setup and their thoughts on this?

    Have no idea is the ECU going to throw a fit if it's too far out?

    I heard the diff works harder due to rolling diameter difference in the xi models and have not put the wheels on yet since I'm still waiting for a front camber plate to fit the fronts.
    Trying to figure out if I have to change the 275 rears to the same 255 if its going to mess with the trans or diff.

    Any advice will help.

    I have heard this before. I believe your answer is in the manual though.
