18 inch wheels 1996 328i

Hello,
I'm new to the board and a new bmw owner. i upgraded the wheels to 225 40 18. the previous owner had them on a 1998 328i. well after getting the car on the road with them on there is alot of noise coming from the rear end. Sound like a rub because there is alot of noise that gets louder as I go faster. I ran my hand all the artound the wheel and couldn't find any rub spots. Does anyone have any ideas what the heck that noise is..

thanks,
Cam

HI, you must have alighted from the car while you ran your hand round the wheel. just hope you don't weight much! your weight matters/if the shocks are weak!!! double check both parameters bro! providad wheel base can accommodate 225 tyres. hope this helps.
