M3 GTS Rim Width

Do we have a guess on what the Rim width on the GTS is.

They run 255/35s up front and 285/30s in the rear.
I'm thinking 9" up front and 10" in the rear, what do you guys think?

youre probably right... it doesnt look super aggressive by any means... 19x9 and 19x10 are very common sizes in the aftermarket scene.

As I recall, the GT4 is 19x9.5 on the front and 19x10.0 at the rear so it's unlikely that the GTS is wider than that.

The "recommended" rim width for 255/35x19's is 9.0 and for 285/30x19's is 10.0"

I agree with HREM3 - 9" Front, 10" rear.

I got 9" and 10" with 255/35, 285/30 and they fit perfect. Looks OEM, so I'm guessing that's probably what they are using.

I find it strange though, it's not hard to realize that the front tire has a noticeably larger sidewall than the rear. Looks ugly/weird IMO.

+1, but I guess you can be assured that its a combination that works since it comes from BMW like that.

The sidewall is why i went to a 295/30 rear. So they look more even. The overall diameter is still larger on my fronts with 255/35 though.
