Those wheels look perfect on your car! How is the ride on those low profiles? I would be scared to use a thin tire like that with all the pot holes over here.

Wowwwww look at the aggressive offset. I hope you get it all sorted out so there is no rubbing, and still looks as aggressive... Why front spacers? couldnt HRE do the proper offset for the front? Im just curious

You could go 255/30 fronts and 295/30 rears or 285/30. It might work better for your setup.

Thats looks incredible. Love everything about it. Altho the rear tire is a bit too wide, it still looks good.

Because the tire is too thin. I wanted to fill the space in. when I get fatter tires, the spacers will come off.

I was thinking 255 35 20 and 285 30 20.

Wow Looks SICK! I love the 540's... Had them on my E46 M3 for 2 Years! Great Wheels!
I had 19x8.5 Fronts and 19x10.5 in the Rear running 285's in the Rear.
You should Defiantly go with the 285's... the 305 are a bit to much but still look SICK!!!
The 285's will look PERFECT!!!

Great job man! Car looks incredible!!!!

Thanks

Looks great!!!

255/30/20 would be more then enough. Anything over that on a lowered M would rub
