Any suprises with this set up?

I just bought some 359 AG's sizes 19x9 and 19x10, ET's -18F and -25R. Any suprises when I go to mount them such as lugs are not compatible? need centering rings? rubbing? etc. I'm driving an E92 M3, stock height and plan on using stock M3 tire sizes.

I'm assuming that the offsets are not actually negative because if they are, you WILL be surprised. Otherwise you won't have any surprises. However, you should confirm that hub rings are not needed. If these wheels are a BMW specific application, chances are they are hub centric so rings are not needed but you should confirm that.

Thanks! The offset for the fronts are a bit different from stock as far as I can tell. Do I need extended lug bolts?

Nope. The offset of the wheel won't have any effect on that. And you are correct, the way the wheels sit (a function of the width AND offset) will be different than stock. But you shouldn't have any issues.

Think I gots it. So its the design of the wheel in my case that creates the more aggressive offset and not the thickness of the hub mounting surface? Like when people use spacers? Bare with me brothers...I'm learning. Thanks again.

Right. The face of the wheel (concavity for example) and/or the barrel (lip for example) are what is going to make the wheel more aggressive. The thickness of the backpad should be roughly the same as the stock wheels therefore longer bolts are not required. It's different with spacers though. They effectively increase the thickness of the backpad, pushing the whole wheel out toward the fender in the process. In this case, longer bolts are most definitely required.

Keep us updated if you end up using spacers to get that desired/practical fitment you're looking for. Is you suspension lowered as well?
