flame on! lol. link fixed. http://www.ssr-wheels.com/wheels/sp3_181920.asp


I'd say aggressive offsets for an e92 would be +15/20?

+18 is the limit unless you put a really narrow rim up front.

rear +15.

I have to agree with you on that one! IMHO, it's good to be unique and others should realize how hard an individual worked to achieve the right look.

Lots of trial and error came into play finding the the right size, offset and that was definitely no easy task.

Trial and error is the key...

Aggressive and stretched tires is my favorite look of all. I used to be into the JDM scene so thats pretty self explanatory. My old car was a G35 with 19x9.5 et5, 19x11 et5 stretched

My M3 on the other hand has Advan RS-D's sizing 19x9 et7 front, and 19x10 et8 rear.

It's not the most aggressive, but for daily driving it works well. I do rub in the rear a bit with passengers.

Here's a few pics of the M3.

19x9+7?! did that rub on full lock? what size tires were you using?

i'm running 20x9+18 and 20x10.5+15 (daily driver, no issues).
nothing wrong with sharing offsets. its not top secret stuff.

To each it's own , but please excuse me for saying a lot of those pics on the Japanese cars are horrible looking, now I know you said you don't want the tires stretched thank god, but that close to the wheel well you will rub and the ride would be shit because your tires would be such a low profile!

Tire sizes are 245/35R19 front and 275/35R19 rear. I agree, I hate the secret offset society.
