HELP needed - BBS LM reps on E90 LCi M3

Hi guys

Looking at some 19" BBS LM reps for my AW E90 M3

I know the stock BMW rims are (F) 19x8.5 ET29 & (R) 19x9.5 ET23

The rims I have been looking at are (F) 19x8.5 ET40 & (R) 19x9.5 ET25

Does this means the wheels will fill the arches more or less? If anything, I want a more aggressive look, with the wheels filling the arches a little more. I have used the wheel configurator app & it looks to me as though these offsets will be less agressive than the current stock rims?

Can anyone help as they are the last set they have at this price and I want to sort today (if they are any good and will fit!!)

Cheers!!

You are going to need some serious spacers for the front and rear if you want a flush look.

The bigger the offset, the more it will be in towards the car, not out towards the fender's edge. The front will most likely not work at all. You would need to add an 11mm spacer to just put it at stock. These were made to go on an E46, and be non-aggressive it looks like.

Those offsets are for wheels that are an INCH wider.

Those are very poorly chosen offsets in my opinion. Feel free to contact us if you need any help!
