19" Avant Garde M359 GTS Reps - Installed!

Although I dig the factory 19" wheels, I decided to upgrade to the Avant Garde GTS reps. These are essentially the same as the factory BMW wheel that comes on the M3 GTS (19x9 and 19x10), but the front has a better offset (ET 18) making them sit better without having to use spacers. IMO, I would rather go replica without spacers than factory with spacers.

Despite the good price, the wheels seem very high quality. They are black satin, so somewhere between matte and glossy. I went with Michelin PSS rubber sized 255/35/19 and 275/35/19. Love the shoes. I have Eibach Springs on my E93 and no rubbing issues yet!

Big thanks goes to Eric at SPP for taking good care of me with the wheels and the springs. He came in special for me on Saturday to get this done and came up with great pricing as well.

Anyway, here are some pics to avoided the dreaded TPIWP:

Your car looks awesome! I have the same wheels, except i am running four rear 19x10s with 275s all around instead. The quality does seem good, I would concur.

I had the same wheels in silver. Nice wheel, the paint chipped easily though. The black looks really aggressive and is definitely a head turner. Sexy M3!

That setup looks great. What offsets did you get on the front and rear?

I forget, but they only come in one offset.

Do the 19x10's rub on the front, and how is the performance with that setup? What's your tire profile?

No rubbing. I was running 275/30 all around. Turn in was not as good with the wider front tires, but not bad by any means. Grip was fantastic.
