BBS LM-R Question

Hey so Ive pretty much decided on lm-r's for the my new m3, but I have a question regarding available size - I was told that they only make them in widths up to 9.5 for the rears, is 10 really not available? I read online they make them up to 11 wide.....thanks very much

Bulletproof automotive's price is very steep tirerack sells them for 1300 each for 19's and 1500 for 20's still very pricey but not as bad as 8200!

Those specs are fine since they're only -1mm & +2mm difference front/rear compared to oem specs (19x8.5; +29 & 19x9.5; +23). You're not going to notice a huge difference with just 1-2mm.

I have no clue why Bulletproof Automotive would charge $8200 for them other than obtaining the Ericsson custom offsets for those wheels.

Will the OEM 19' tires fit those rims or is it suggested to buy a new set of tires?

On the Tire Rack LM-R's the OE 19" sizes: 245/35R19 and 265/35R19 will work fine. You can get new tires if you want, but if you have a set of stock 19's, they will be fine.
