19" Avant Garde M359 GTS Reps - Installed!

Although I dig the factory 19" wheels, I decided to upgrade to the Avant Garde GTS reps. These are essentially the same as the factory BMW wheel that comes on the M3 GTS (19x9 and 19x10), but the front has a better offset (ET 18) making them sit better without having to use spacers. IMO, I would rather go replica without spacers than factory with spacers.

Despite the good price, the wheels seem very high quality. They are black satin, so somewhere between matte and glossy. I went with Michelin PSS rubber sized 255/35/19 and 275/35/19. Love the shoes. I have Eibach Springs on my E93 and no rubbing issues yet!

Big thanks goes to Eric at SPP for taking good care of me with the wheels and the springs. He came in special for me on Saturday to get this done and came up with great pricing as well.

Anyway, here are some pics to avoided the dreaded TPIWP:
