Some do, some don't. Two different wheels in the same size don't necessarily mean the inner barrel diameter is the same.

I have a square 18x8 et 30 setup, MAK FAHR Black, with pirelli sottozero 235/40 R18.
It cleared the brakes and everything s fine, even drove in snowy weather, no problem.
One small issue so far, highway, 130 - 140 km/ h (80 mph), straight line, some vibration in the steering wheel. The guys at the tyre shop said that pirellis are not that good , and refitted them on the wheels. didn.t fix the problem totally, less vibration tho.
maybe someone can tell us if this issue is from the tyre, fitment or other issues, or can it be from the wheel dimension, width, diameter, offset?
I personally think is the tyres, the way they were fitted on the wheel, or that they cant fit very well on these wheels.
Thanks

Currently looking at a set of 18" 270M wheels for my winter setup; wondering if anyone has run these on an M2 Competition/know if they will fit?

Running the standard blue brakes

Cheers
