A few things:

Sam: I really like what you did with the m3 ~ those red wheels and red mirrors really tie in well together and pop nicely. My only suggestion is now your red tails might be a bit too much and to smoke them ever so slightly. Just my 2 cents. Now you got me thinking yellow mirrors and yellow wheels! What size are you front and rear tires? I think you have one of the nicest stances here for a E90 m3!


This is my setup right now, I'm planning to go a bit lower for a more "raked" look but the front lip is already so low I'm afraid to scratch it.

I don't know much about offsets so would you please explain to me the reasoning for going with this relatively uncommon offset set up and running spacers? It looks very similar IMO to my 19x9.5 ET21 and 19x10.5 ET22 but I'm running wider tires w/o any spacers.

Was it primarily to get the stretched tire look?

Thanks!

Brendan, these are the same exact sizes and offsets as your 19" set. The poster just calculated the offset to include the spacer (ET21 with a 18mm spacer = ET3, ET22 with a 15mm spacer = ET7; you substract the size of the spacer to get to the final "effective" offset)

Thanks for the 2 cents and the compliments! The tires are stock size actually (F: 245,35,19 & R: 265,35,19)

Love your set-up as well!

Any tire advice for TE37 19x9.5 +21 / 19x10.5 +22? Going with the Ohlins R/T coilovers and would like to avoid rubbing issues. Thanks.

Indeed, they are touched up. I take the plate off for big events but got tired of plate tickets at $65 a pop.

What is the best PSS Tire Size M3 E93 Stock with TE37 SL

Questioning - 2011 M3 - E93 Versus E92 Tire Differences for Volk TE37 SL?

I just ordered TE37 SL Wheels in Pressed Graphite 19x9.5 ET+21 19x10.5 ET22.

I looking to put Michelin PSS on but I am trying to figure out the best tire sizes... I'm thinking of the following options.

1. 265/30 and 295/30 - I am concerned rear might be a tight fit but understand the E93 has a bit more rear room than the E92.

2. 265/30 and 285/30 - Just to be sure of fit or

3. 255/35 and 285/30 -

Does anyone know if the E93 is different than the E92 for rear well room and regardeless if these sets would have an rub or issues with the speedometer? Your input would be appreciated.

I can help with the fronts, you're better off going 265/30 instead of 255/35.

I've tried both 265/35 and 255/35 and both rub.

I have 285/35 for rears and I get a bit of rubbing, but with a bit more neg camber I should be good. Go with 285/30 if you want to be safe, but I think 295/30 should be good too.

I have TE37's in 19x9.5 ET +22 and 19x10.5 ET +22. The tires I'm using have a square profile on the shoulders.
