Ok guys. Im currently buying a new set of BBS LM reps for my TT Nürburgring :)

The provider has them in 18x8, and 18x9..

Could i fit 18x9 all around, or should i use 18x8 in the front, and 18x9 in the rear?

Lars :)

Its what i call my car project ;)

Ok, then i will go for 8 in the front, and 9 in the rear.

Would this be a good setup?

Front: 18x8 with 225/35

Rear: 18x9 with 245/35

How would that be with the haldex? Do you have suggestions to better tire-alternatives?

Anyone with tyre tips for the rim size mentioned above? Have the haldex in mind :)
I have 8s in front and 9s in back. Best tyre combo are either 225/40 paired with 255/35s or 235/40 paired with 265/35 (these are slightly larger than oem but provide more rim protection from kerbs and potholes). I'm running the latter with no issues (2 years now). Both sets are within about 1% difference in rolling radius from front to rear so haldex is happy.

cheers.

Agree, the rolling circumference of the tyres should be within 1% between front and rear, to keep the haldex from locking up due to different rotation speeds between the axles.

Hi, 245 rears will be 14 mm greater diam than front.
235/35 for the rear will be a better tyre size.
Hoggy. :D

Ok! Thanks for you reply :) For the rear, would 18x9 Et35 - 265/35 fit without spacers?

I have a couple of brand new 245/40 Zr18.. would those be a good fit on the 9x18 in the rear? and, what could i combine on the 8x18 in the front?
No 245/40/18 are too big.

You want 225/40/18 on the front, and 255/35/18 on the rear - this would be perfect for you.
+1 I have this set up with no probs & looks great.
