what is the stock offset?? i am lowered on Dinan susp as well and i have a 265 up front and don't rub at all, in fact i was thinking of trying a 275/295 next time since there is room with the 265

he said he is lowered with Dinan springs. i have the camber plates too which pushes the front up just a hair so not sure if that helps for the clearance of the 265 for me.

i would be interested to hear from the op as well as i will need tires soon and trying to decide what size to go with next time

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.

I'm also beginning to think that the sedan looks more aggressive and that I'd rather have that over the coupe, possibly? Damn....
- LOL

I agree the sedan looks more aggressive. I have always said that. These wheels only add fuel to that fire ...

Those sizes are closest to the OEM diameters while being the proper sizes for the wheels. I wanted the front to have a slightly taller sidewall to fill the gap a bit more. So even with 'just' a Dinan drop I think the stance is perfect now.

Yep and no rubbing.

I prefer the looks, plus I wanted gunmetal, and these were available.

guess i am out of the loop
JDM = Japanese Domestic Market

It's not a company, it refers to OEM parts from Japan.

In the case of Volk/RAYS wheels for the M3 it doesn't apply since they're not OEM. But it's kind of become a generic term over time.

^ you are absolutely right.
JDM = Japan Domestic Market

Term is loosely used for anything made in Japan, these days. Used to be used only for something like OEM parts that are available exclusively on Japan cars only.

As for the specs on the TE37 Gun Metal, it is 19 - 9.5 et22 and 19 - 10.5 et20.
we have done about 6 cars with this set up so far and the best fit seems to be with the 265/35-19 and 295/30-19 tires. They seem to be the closest to the stock radials in terms of OD and front/rear bias.

love the pics....

i had Vredestein on my 330i before. great overall tires but the sides dont hold up very well if you take it to the track.

never realized how mild the dinan drop was. it looks just a little bit lower than factory. is it 10mm like the zhp?

It looks astonishing! That's what I would choose for my IB, if money were no issue...

What exhaust do you have?
