Aggressive Offsets

Hey guys,

Iv'e been lurking here for a month, am expecting my 2009 E92 to show up in a week. I want to order some new wheels and an considering the Avant Garde 310's.

Wondering what you guys think of the following - front 19 x 8.5 et 15 and rears 19 x 9.5 et 15? Too agresive?

I'll be running with stock PS'2 245/35 and 265/35.

Would really appreciate some feedback for a new M3 owner.

Cheers!

You will be fine. They make a wider wheel for the rear if you wanted...

If you want aggressive, get wider wheels or you can add 10mm spacers all around on that setup.

They will be perfect. Mine are +15 and +20 and look great. +15/+15 would be great... nice and flush.

I've seen people go F19x9.5 et22mm R19x10.5 et22mm. So you'll be fine.

that's the equivalent of running a 14mm spacer front and 8mm spacer rear with OEM wheels

you could go wider no rubbing issues with that set up

Thanks guys. Just needed a little nudge in the right direction.

They have a front 19 x 9.5" et 22 with rear 19 x 11 et 33. Just seemed a little unessecary - heavier wheel and tire, potential for understeer, and I wanted to re-use the stock rubber which is newish. Also at 11" tire profile becomes critical to avoid rubbing.

Thanks again.

I'd say if youre going 9.5 front, 11 rear those are perfect offsets.

Or 9" +17, 10+ 25 or 10.5 + 25
