With 305s you have to be careful to get the offset correct. I wouldn't go below an ET31 with 305s out back.

ET33s would be perfect for 305s.

I thought I was going to see naval aviation's finest and you guys didn't disappoint. Btw, F-111 was a huge beotch compared to the tomcat, same concept though.
Fly Navy!
end of thread jack, carry on...

Yea, F-111 is bigger, but closer in size to the Tomcat than my beloved Eagle! It is a much bigger plane...

Just to give you a reference on what those sizes look like on an E92. You should not have to switch out your lugs to studs.







This last pic was with a cell..sorry for the crappy quality but it shows you that the tires aren't stretched at all but properly supported.

Pics didnít show up brother??

Now that looks awesome to me! Exactly the look I want. No stretch...NICE! What are the complete specs of the tires 275/30/19 & 295/30/19?

Exactly, Mich PSS. Thanks for the kind words..and thanks for your service bro!!

One other thing..I can't tell you on how secure the car feels after this upgrade. This is the way the M3 should have came to begin with. It was way under tired in its OEM 245/265 setup.

Sorry, new here and to the tire stuff. I like the Forgestar F14's. So if I ran the following would I have any issues with rubbing? I have a stock chassis on my M3.

19x9.5 et22 225/35/19 - front

19x11 et25 255/30/19 - rear

Is this a joke? A 225 on front with a 9.5" wheel and a 255 out back on a 11: wide wheel. Way undertired...

Max rim width for a 225 tire is 9" Max rim width for a 255 tire is 10".

I have some pics on my instagram: @jonshmoe.

Front: 19x9.5; 255/35/19
Rear: 19x11; 275/35/19 (switching to 285/30 or 295/30 in a couple of days)

I dont remember the exact offsets, but I think my rear is +27.

The wheels no issues, the tires is what I was referring to as a joke. Did someone try to put M3 wheels on a non M and had to run the skinny tires to get it to clear?

For those wheels you should be running a 265/30/19 front and 295/30/19 for the rear. You could also run a 275 up front but I would prefer a 10" wide wheels for the 275s.

Absolutely love the concavity and wouldn't mind rocking it on mine for city cruisin'... I just can't get on board with the spokes abruptly attaching to the lip of the wheel. Wish they had a smooth transition and didn't appear as blocky.

Killer looking setups, though, folks!

Thank you. Would that require any fender rolling etc?
