Any ideas on good tire brands?
I think you were planning on 295/30/19. If so I recommend Michelin PSS for street or Yokohama AD08R for street/track. I would pair that with 275/30/19 in the front if you have 9.5" wide + front wheels.

Front wheels are 10" ill need to stretch more in the front and rear then i hoped for.

I was thinking 245/285 or 255/295 but again they're very agressive.

I would absolutely run 275's on your fronts if they are 10". I have 275's on my 10" fronts et18 without any rubbing (none at full lock, none on dips in the road). My tire is a few mm away from my coilovers on the inside and perfect in relation to the outer fender. I have just under 2 degrees of negative camber. A 275 in the front is a much better match to a 295 in the rear. Running 245 or 255 in the front will just add understeer plus too much of a stretch on a 10" wide wheel.

Here are a few new pictures with the spacers from this past weekend.














Your wheels are just SEXY!! I know what I want now instead of saving up for BBS's that I would cry if I curb rashed.. (Love at first site)

I am trying to figure out the most agressively fitted e92/93 M3 out there.. with fender mods i mean with poke and stretch.. if there is any..

My friend did 20x10+18 and 20x11+11 with light rear fender mods. I have seen a 19x12 in the rear..with minor mods to rear too

but i still think there is rooom for more than that.
I have a set of Leon Hadiritt Ordens at 19x10/19x12 with negative offsets, i dream of fitting on my car after i redrill the holes..I am not afraid of cutting and modifying the rear and adding camber if necessary


Exhibit a: This is 20x10 20x11.5 unknown offset but you can tel there is poke. this is probably the most agressive I have seen next to my friends...I think it would look much better if he flattened and pulled his rear fender about a 1/4 or 1/2 inch....
....any one seen more agressive mayeb with a pull and modified fenders?

Here are some photos of my 2011 sedan on Volk TE37SL's

Front: 19x9.5 et +22 and a 12.5mm spacer to make et +9.5 245/35/r19
Rear: 19x10.5 et +22 no spacer 295/30/r19

Only get a little bit of rub over bumps in the rear with passengers.

Just for reference a 12JJ -et is going to be a big problem. This is my 19x10 +15 and 19x12 +25

In the front even with KW clubsports (linear springs) are about 1-2mm away from hitting the wheel, so I need a 5mm spacer up front. Luckily for me, I have the macht schnell bullet tip studs to install, so spacer is no issue. Rears are going to need some fender love to fit the 285/30 outside, and inside just some trimming to the plastic liner. The rear has plenty of inner strut clearance.

Ideally I didn't want to go with too much stretch, but also wanted to fit a big wheel. I did 245/35/19 up front on 10" and 285/30/19 on 12". The stretch is almost identical and sidewall heights are spot on (F 85.75mm R 85.5mm)

In my perfect world I would have loved a 295/30 rear but I also wanted to build a wheel wider then most (Thanks for all the help SERG!!!) and have a 5.5" rear lip.











More pics coming soon.

So I know what you are saying, but If you have 5.5" outers, that means your inners are 6.5"...
my outers are 6.5" and inners 5.5" so I gain 1 " of inner clearance, at the same time your disk seems to be mid disk? or is it hi? mine is low, it's like the part that hits the hub is flat with the spokes, so Io also gain outer clearance, it was a custom wheel build, for another car/S14 but I have a light feeling I can make the rear work with some tlc...then again if I cant I am more then rear to cut up the metal and flare them out very nicely... like the VIP guys do..
the fronts are what worries me.. ahahha

What size fronts do you want to run?

The problem in the rear would not be inner clearance, it would be outter. Id say in negative offset you will stick out past the body 1.5 to 2" lol

Liberty walk cars run negative offset 12" rear.

I have a pic of my 12 +25 and thats poking quite a bit in the rear. Also keep in mind you need to clear the brakes too. Leon orditt wheel has a flat face so idk how well thats going to work with the brake clearance. I had these wheels built in mind to clear the brakes.

Here is a couple until my photoshoot is done. No rubbing at all. I max'd out the kw clubsports but i want to go lower, so im going to look into custom springs/aircups.

12" rear is max'd out. 1 pink gap on inner fender liner, and pokes in rear.

Front i am convinced i can build a 10.5 +5 with a 255/35. Right now mine are 10" +10 but im adding mach schnell competition spacers for a little extra inner clearance.

Lmk if anyone needs help! The numbers are dialed in to the t!

Thanks! Ill report back monday after alignment. I didnt touch any arms in rear and left the kw clubsport plates even, so it's "natural" camber right now.

19x10 +5 245/35/19 nitto invo
19x12 +25 285/30/19 nitto invo

I didnt touch the rear quarters at all. Im so pumped that bmw manufacturers the cars with flat fender lips and widened rear bumpers with no exposed tabs. This car was easy to fit lol
