    Most likely 265/40/18, I'm not too sure if you have 19's or not but yea. The r888 are a fat sidewall etc so I'm gonna guess thats the biggest you can go in the rear, maybe even push 275 if you're lucky .

    i think the standard size on them are 245/35/18. I am pretty sure togo makes a 265/35/18, I will have to verify this but I have been browsing other threads a bunch today and that seems to be the verdict. I will check with @ModBargains also, thanks sticky

    On your 135i, I would run 225/40/18 & 255/35/18 in the R888s. Will probably need to stick with an offset close to ET50mm to avoid any tire rub. Worse case scenario, you'll have to do a minor fender roll as these tires are pretty meaty. This would be perfect on a 18x8.5 & 18x9.5 wheel setup as well.

    Edited*

    Noticed you said on stock wheels, if your stock is 18x7.5 & 18x8.5, then you'll be fine to use the recommended sizes above.
