305/25 - 76.25 sidewall

Stock = 265/35 - 92.75mm sidewall

So in short, the 305/30 is the correct tire. I would have personally liked a 315/30, but could not find that.

I spoke with the great guys at 360, and they are getting the problem fixed ASAP. I cannot see how they used yo have bad service...I just don't see it?!?! They have been and continue to be nothing but awesome to me.

I am guessin you are not up on 360 wheel weights. Yes there are lighter race wheels out there. But I bet they are same weight as the stock 18's, maybe lighter. I know someone that has the Mesh 8 on a M5 and weighed them prior to install. They are 20's and came in at 25-26 lbs. So I am guessin the 19's weigh less. How much do the stock 18's weigh? I agree though, I would have got 20's with that style of wheel.

Any resolution to the incorrect front offset?

Nice wheels, love the look.

Yep. The fronts are currently on their way back to 360, should be there by Monday, and then shipped out by Wednesday. I am hoping to have them back the next Monday.

Basically, they used the wrong front and back lips, and they just need to change those out. My front lips were 2.5", and they should be 3". Oh well. It is all getting taken care of. They were very quick to get it all handled.

Word. The 20's I just ordered will have a 2.5" lip up front also.

Yup. 3" front lip, and 4 1/2" rear lip. The centers are machined for that. It is nice, because then the center almost hits the calipers...just barely misses. It looks amazing. The wheels in the pictures have a 2 1/2" lip, and the offset is off.

The diameter of the wheel has nothing to do with the lip size.

These have a 3" lip on the front and a 4 1/2" lip on the rear. They are m34jlp's wheels...

Im aware of that, but i just think that is big, maybe too big for 19s. Not that it wont fit or wont be possible, but it will look odd IMO.

So askiles got his wheels but a few other guys on this board haven't received their refunds. That's not right. Not hating but I feel bad for them. I could've been one of them.

Anyways, your car looks good. Keep it up.

Thanks, I feel bad for them too. Looking at my awesome experience customer service wise with 360, I have not clue how these people are having such a bad time?!?!

The wheels should have gotten to 360 today, and they plan on shipping them out again on Wednesday. That means I should have them by next Monday. I can't wait.
