2011 BMW M3 with Forgestar Wheels and KW Suspension from GMP Performance

This M3 was on the hunt for an adjustable suspension upgrade and while it was there, the ever popular style boost that is wheels. Choosing a KW kit and some Forgestar forged wheels mated with a Michelin favorite, the Pilot Super Sport, this beauty of a BMW looks stunning from any angle.


Parts Installed:
Forgestar F14 Rotary Forged Flow Formed Wheels
Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires
BMW E90/E92 M3 Adjustable Spring Sleeve Kit by KW Suspensions

Haha, I was wondering how long it'd take before that was asked. My wild guess is 19x10 around +25mm?

Upon seeing these wheels in person a few weeks ago I ordered a set myself. Pictures do no justice to how the concave look really is. They are also much more sparkly in person and not matte looking as in pictures.
Looks great congrats.

Thanks!! Agreed, the concavity stands out much more in person, the pics just can't seem to capture it completely. Can't wait to see yours!

Yes, it's a non-ZCP with EDC.

So, I ordered 275/30/19 Hankook V12s on mine, as I had originally was going 10" in front. Forgestar had discrepancies with their 10" barrels and I chose to do 9.5" fronts. Totally forgot to change the tires to 265/30.

Think that'll be too much tire in the front?

Also...gorgeous car! This should pretty much be my setup in a few weeks.

All depends on what offset you're running in the front. 275/30 PSS was my initial first choice and would have fit great, but they were on a 2+ month wait time when I was looking for them, so settled for the 265s.

Can you elaborate on what you meant by "Forgestar had discrepancies with their 10" barrels."
