No problem! His setup is:

EC-7 18x10 et25 Square with 275/35/18 Hankook RS-3's.

Our 19" EC-7's will fit very similar to this, only the wheel is slightly larger in diameter of course Spec's for a 19" square setup listed below:

EC-7 19x10 et25 - 275/30/19 tires

Feel free to call us if you would like to discuss your fitment options in depth!

Thank you. Was hoping to see some pics on an E90, but I think this will do. Trying to decide between Arc8 18x10, or 19x10 all around. What is the weight difference between the two?

You got it! Here are the same wheels on an e90 M3.





Wheels weights for your comparison are below. As you can see, either way you are vastly improving things, as both weights are impressive!

ARC-8 18x10 et25 - 19.95 lbs. each

ARC-8 19x10 et25 - 21.95 lbs. each

No Sir, and absolutely no rubbing unless I have some fat bodies in the back and hit a good bump. LOL

Think of the $ savings of tires as well.

Anyone run a 255/35-18 on a 9.5 and 275/35-18 on 10.5?
Better pricing on tires. Not a normal setup from what I see. Most people run 265/285 respectively.
Looking for feedback on a lot of street driving with a few track days to see how well that would handle.

These tire sizes can certainly be used, but they are technically a little stretched for 9.5" and 10.5" wheels. This leaves the lip's of the wheels open for potential damage. The e9X has plenty of room under the fenders, so most owners choose to maximize tire width, resulting in more grip. The tire sizes you mention would be better suited with 18x9 and 18x10 wheels.

You also mentioned that your motivation would be to save money on tires. No doubt that tracking your car can get expensive, and the best way to save money on tires is to run a square fitment. The most common is 18x10et25 with 275/35/18 tires.

A square setup (same size wheel and tire on all four corners) has many benefits. First, it allows you to rotate your tires effectively from front to back, and/or side to side which has a major impact on tire longevity and promoting even tire wear. When running a square fitment, you typically have gained more front wheel/tire width over stock specís, and that creates more front end grip, as well as sharper turn-in. Overall a square setup is believed to create a much more balanced car for the corners. These benefits are very attractive for track enthusiasts and racers, but also translate to an everyday street car.
