And rears for the most part are 10-11 with offsets around +10/+20

18x10+15f
18x11.5+4r




Now, I understand the whole "This car was meant to handle/track/be a racekor/etc," but I am fully aware of what I am doing is killing the 'handling' of the car but let's be real, I live in Florida, my entire state is one miserable straight line.

any insights are appreciated.
The front on the E9x has a ton of room compared to the E46, leaps and bounds more. I went through 2 sets of wheels/spacers before I got it right.

hmm, my car is pretty dumped....not trying to raise it to accomodate for a wider tire. Tucking my 18's as it is, and scraping on most driveways.

I tried getting 19x11 rear and 10 front but when I first ordered the wheels I was planning on using the stock tires and I was told the tires were going to be too stretch so they recommended 19x9.5 and 19x10. A couple of weeks ago was when I decided I wanted a wider stance and ordered this tires, I will be buying some 19x11 for the rear and using the 19x10 front when is time for me to buy new tires!!!!

Don't have ride height measured, but I had it lower and raised it up since I go to the track and the car handled like garbage being that low. Camber is -3.2 front, -2.8 rear.

Looks great (The -3.2 camber up front explains my previous question)

On an m3? If so those are unusual size choices.
