I'm sold! I thought 20" was the way to go but between the width and the offsets shown here 19" looks great. Plus I'd rather ride on a 35 series tire than a 20 series.

Frankie, the last pic looks great. I wonder if rdsport springs will give me that look.

it's not fun to drive a slammed car in general. It might be an eye candy but it's really a pita to drive.

Unfortunately, RS-GT's require spacers at the present time.

They don't make V2's for our cars. I'm hoping they fix that soon, since most of us won't know what to do with a double adjustable suspension and don't need it.


Looks great OP. Where did you get the wheels from? What was the price difference between the 19's and 20's?

Looks good man, but your tire sizes are all wrong. Way to wide w/o the a decrease in profile. Speedo will be off about 4-5% plus potential stability control issues. I highly recommend you resize the tires for a 1% rolling radius tolerance to stock.

Good luck...

Perfect sizing would be 255/35 and 295/30 for these wheels.

silver 19's LM look best, there was a an E92 M3 with 20's and it was a bit much IMO. How much lighter are the LM4s compared to the standard 19's?

I was going to go this route. It looks good. Maybe I will later in the future. Thanks for sharing.

Good, someone actually confirmed that 305 will fit. I'm going for my 265/35, 305/30 combo then.
