I've had this conversation with Slicer and from what he says, the 18" barrels will catch rocks between the caliper and score the barrels. BBS recommends scored barrels to be replaced immediately. For that reason, he recommends only 19" E88 for F80 application.

I've seen 18" E88 on F80s actually, but probably good just for show considering the above. Let me know what color you go with so I don't do the same :P

They will not. They clear rears but fronts need AP racing or something similarly low profile unfortunately.

More sidewall is better, esp for street use. What wheels/offsets/suspension?

I have Turner 5mm spacers up front. Could probably get away with 3mm. When mounted with no spacer it didnít touch but it was very close.
