    if its the standard BMW wheels im going to assume that they are ET47 but you will need to check to confirm this

    i was running the standard style 27s with 205/60s but i had to set the suspension as high as i could get it whilst it was on the car and even at that there was barely 2-3mm clearance if even that

    the iS looked like this


    even if you setup the car in the same way that i did you still may need to use spacers, i think it varies from car to car, you will just need to try it and see

    it is a bit of faffing about but once i got some wheels on with a decent offset as far as i was concerened it was worth the hassle, the suspension is pretty good considering the price and you're not stuck with the same height all the time
