This goes back to the ability to enjoy the car, i'll be honest, it's fun driving a quarter inch off the ground in FL because the roads are straight and boring, but I regretted being set up like this when it came for road trips, I want to drive the car, so a set up like my e46 is impractical

If you want sizing that works without stretch and poke (which provides zero performance benefit as I'm sure you know) then I would recommend:

18 (or 19) x 9.5 et 22 front with 265 or 275 mm tires

Rear options:

19 x 10.5 et 27 rear with 295/30 tires (any lower offset will rub on 295's)

18 x 10.5 et 22 rear with 285/35 tires

18 x 11 et 27 or 30 with 295/35 tires - if you can find them...
KW Clubsport 3-way, Akrapovic Evolution, ESS Tune, StopTech Trophy, IND Euro Bumper & Black Mirror Covers, Turner Motorsports Studs/Lugs & Delrin Diff Bushings, MRF Solid Sub-Frame Bushings, RD Sport Sways, Recaro Profi-XL & Planted Seat Brackets, BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Interior Trim, BMW Edition Grills/Gills, Mode Carbon GT4 Splitter & GTS Wing, Advan TC3 (18x9.5/10.5), BBS E05 (18x10/11), G-Force Rivals (275/295)
