OEM+ E90 M

Supercharging the car is in the future so I decided to get some new wheels with a more performance oriented setup. I know 18's is preferred for performance but I really don't like how the car looks on 18's other than on TE37's. Not ready to pull the trigger on those yet. I went with a OEM+ look.

Once again, thanks to ACM for putting this together for me.

Pardon the IPhone quality pics. Arkym lip is going back on tomorrow.





19x10 AG M359 ET 20 front 10mm rear on 275/30 Hankook V12's
5mm spacer in front and 15mm in rear.
Absolutely no rubbing.

The fronts look so sick. That definitely is OEM+. Great looking E90! Do you have any just honest shots? Not trying to be a prick but I'd love to see the non-stylized shots.

Great look man. I like it a lot better than the red 219s. I can't wait to see what you have planned for the LMs.

Look great. Confused about your offsets and tires sizing in front and back with spacers. Can you clarify? And what kind of drop you using? Thanks

Looks good, but "performance oriented setup" and "hankook v12 tires" should never be mentioned together

You will find them severely lacking with oem power much less supercharged.

Nice looking car though

Thanks. The 219 were getting old. I really don't like how the car looks on those 18's. I loved the red on white look though.

The offset of the wheels is ET25. I'm running 5mm spacer in the front making is ET20 and 15mm spacer in the rear making it ET10. Tires are 275/30 all around.

Ride isn't that bad. The entire tristate area is pretty much the same way. On the 20's you have to seriously pay attention.

Nice one, always nice to give the car a little refresh. Im like you that I'm quite keen on keeping it 18s... TE37s are the way forward but in the mean time ive switched out from 219Ms to 260Ms
