Need some advice

I am looking for a new set of wheels for my e92. I would like to stay around the 3k range for a complete set of wheels and tires. I don't track my car, so I honestly don't care about a pound or two here and there. I do, however want to keep balancing/fitting issues in mind.

I was looking into the VMR V710s, but I would like to go wider in the rear, more like a 10" or and 11". Anything with a rear 295 or 305 would be more suitable for me. I then looked into the Forgestar F14s, which are pretty reasonably priced and are offered in 19x11 rear. I realized that the forgestars are VERY rare on the forum. Is there any reason for that? Does anyone have any experience with the forgestars in terms of quality, fitment? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Also, are there any other wheels around 3k (wheels and tires) that anyone can suggest? Thanks in advance.

You should look into some Volk's or Advan. Superb quality and lightweight. Volk TE-37's and G2's are always nice or the Advan RS-D's. Also, check in the classifieds. You can sometimes find some great deals on great wheels! Just one thing....do your research on the wheels before you buy them. There are a ton of posts on here regarding wheel quality. Research!!

Aren't the Volks and Advan RS-D's 3-4k just for the wheels? I need to stay around 3k for the wheels+tires.

Can anyone tell me if the 08 TPMS will work with an 09 e92?
