219M wheels!

Why are the OEM 219M wheels so perfect with a drop and meaty tires???

I'm currently on the stock 220M wheels. I'm planning on lowering my car on coils very soon, and the 219M wheels look so much better on a lowered e90, or e92 when compared to the 220M.

I have the opportunity to buy a clean set of 219M, but I'm worried about getting stuck with the 220M wheels since they don't seem to be highly sorted after from a resale standpoint.

Any cons going from the 220M wheels to the cast iron 219M wheels?

The 220M wheels are 19's. If you are looking for 18's then the 219M wheels are your best bet.

They look great without a drop too. I loved all of the e9x wheels!
