343M Rep Wheels Low Pressure Cast

Installed. Pics below.

Purchased from **********s:

F10 M5 Style Wheels:

Matte Black Machined Face
Fronts: 8.5" ET15; 25 lbs
Rear: 10" ET20; 26.4 lbs

Paired with Michelin Pilot Supersports
Fronts: 245/35/19
Rear: 275/30/19

I had 220M 19" wheels with PS2 (245/35 and 265/35) with MS spacers 12mm front, 5 mm rear and a KW V3 suspension at a conservative height. I don'tneed the spacers in the new setup.

You may want to try 275/35/19 instead

That size is too short

On a 10 inch wheel you can do 285/30/19

^^ Like he mentioned your rear will be 1/4" shorter than the front.

If you didn't want to go with the 285/30 which would put you @ about the same height as the front, try 255/35 & 275/30. This will put your rears 1/2" higher just like stock.

Did **********s recommend that setup?

Calculator here - http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12

I bought the wheels and tires separately. I figured the half inch difference in wheel size and the increase in width wouldn't be an issue and that the 30 would facilitate a little more clearance in the back to avoid rubbing.

Installed

Removed the spacers. Offset change resulted in a very similar stance. I forgot to mention that the wheels came with hub rings to go from 74.1 hub diameter to the M3's 72.56. No issues with rubbing. I did some hard u-turns on the way home. I haven't had anyone in the back yet to see if there's an issue with a little weight on the wheels.

I think it fits. Makes for a classy appearance.

On a side note, 64 pilot? I am a LAR for 64s currently in afghan enroute back to Germany in a few days...

I think I'm indifferent about them, nice to see something other than the usual though!

i like the wheels, but not the finish. anthracite/gunmetal instead of black is more my taste.

Was rocking the 220M for a while, so I wanted a little different finish. I have gloss black side vents, hood vents, kidney grill, M5 style mirror with black underside from IND, and M3 badge. I also recently replaced my center lower grill with a new one I painted gloss black.

Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I'm halfway to retirement.
