Style 184 winter rims

Will the winter package for previous 5 series and 6 series with style 184 18" rims and 245/45/18 RFT work well on the F10 535xi?

those are 18 * 8 ,Offset 20

The ideal is 18 * 8,Offset 30

Both using 245/45/18 tire

Meaning, you will have extra 10mm clearance from the Strut, in turn the rim will now extend 10mm outward. Technically, it's okay. However there is a very small chance your tire may rub into the fender as the suspension goes up & down.

There appears to be 2 offsets available on style 184s. 18x8@20mm offset and 18x8@14mm offset. If they are 14mm, they might be too aggressive for the F10s.

Agree. If you have the latter which are found on the 6 series, then the likely it will rub against the fender is very high.

The difference between (ideal) 30 - 14 = 16mm more clearance from the struct and the wheel is extended 16mm outward.

I guess the OP needs to find out which version of the wheel you have.

thanks for the info guys.... aren't stock wheel/tires specs VERY conservative? I mean I am running 15mm/12mm spacers on my e93 M3 and there are no clearance issues, however I guess there is only one way to find out!

***Pics removed as sellers on kijiji started using pictures of my car without consent.***

FYI, I came across a set of OEM 184s on Kijiji 18x8@14ET with 245/45/18 Pilot Alpins. Front offset is a bit too aggressive but rears sit flush. They work fine on stock 535xi height without rubbing. Hope this helps.
