Forgestar F14s Matteblack - props to Milla Racing

So the wheels finally came after I ordered it two weeks ago. Custom offsets - asked for the most aggressive one for the E92 M3.

19 x 9 +20 and 19 x 10 +20.

I plan to put my stock OEM tires on first 245/35/19 and 265/35/19. Will run it out for a few more months before I change to a wider tires.

Going to get it installed sometime Tuesday. Props to Jonathan at Milla Racing over at Philadelphia for getting things through so quickly.

I got them mounted yesterday evening but haven't had the time to take some good pictures.

I had a feeling I had to go a little wider on the rear - how wide do you think I should go?
285/35/19? How wide can a 19x10 wheel go?

With that wide of a wheel and the skinny of a tire, the tires will probably look stretched. I would go bigger.
