Not to hijack the thread, but if I am looking at wheels that are 19x8.5/+20 offset and 19x9.5/+22 offset, will I need spacers for the e92 M3? Also, since the OP is asking about the BBS CH, would it be better for him to go with ones that are +20 offset (they are available in that offset) or stick with the +35 offset? Disadvantage of the +20 for the CH is that they weigh 2 lbs more per wheel.

Here is a pic of my CHs with +20 offset front and back with no spacers. Perfect fit in my opinion.

IGotID- I would stick to something in the low 20's. ET35 is quite high in the front so your wheels will stick in quite a bit. Of course you can always run spacers but if possible, get a 20 or so offset for the front.

PunjabiM3- the offsets you've posted are fine. There really is no advantages or disadvantages other than the weight that you've mentioned. If the OP goes with ET35 in the front his wheels would just sit in a bit more than ET20.

Here are some more. Went with 275/35s in Yokohama Advan Sport in the back. The Yokos seem to be a little wider than the 275s for a PS2 and have more of a blocked sidewall. Probably will go with PS2s next time but the PS2s were on back order when I did the original purchase.

BBS CHs are much better in person...pictures do not do these justice.

i don't have an e9x; i was just wondering if there's a market for my wheels w/ folks who have an e9x...was thinking about trying to trade my set for e9x OEM 18's
