Recommend best wheel/tire size

I've looked around on the post and there is a huge amount of info on wheels & sizes. So I need a little help deciding. I'm running the OEM 18". But I want to go wider F/R without going with spacers. I'm thinking something that would add about 10-15mm max to the width of the tires. Looking to go with 19" wheels.

I want the tires to fit properly and not the tire walls bulging out or stretched in. What wheel sizes & tire size would you all recommend?

the purpose is for light track use, looks, and performance.

Also wheels that would accomodate StopTeck or Brembo Calipers & discs. Thanks for your help.

Rob

Thanks.

Your web site has no prices, wheel sizes, details or anything. What can you offer me? I like the VMR V710's.

I'm looking for 19" wheels that will give me about 20mm wider print. Probebly something like 255-265Fronts & 285-295's for the rear. I don't plan on lowering now that I think about it, unless I can purchase the Competiton package someday from BMW.

I might be off on the sizes, that's why I'm asking. I don't want wheel to fender contact when turning or over a bumb. Performance first, looks second.

So please pm me with details of size, recommended tire size and wheel offset plus price for all 4 wheels. Thanks,

Rob

My spec FYI:

CCW C14 Black Anodized
Sizes: 18x9.5 ET23 / 18x10.5 ET28 (CCW can build to any size/offset you spec)
Tires: 265/35/18 / 295/30/18 AD08

Perfect fit. No rubbing at all.

Clears 380 mm BBKs.
