Why do you like 19 over 18?

I used like 19 more but the extra lip wasn't for me over time… plus 18 inch is huge difference in weight from zip wheel off the bat…I'm sure 19 te aren't much heavier but each to there own

18" better for specific application. Lighter weight mainly. 18" tires are priced way better than 19" which is a big concern for cars that see track time.

SL Mag Blue
275/295 9.5/10.5

Anyone lowered on H&R springs with 18x9.5+15/10.5+20 TE37SL? Wondering what it'll take for these to work right? I was leaning towards 265/35-285/35. I know the rear will work but worried the fronts might rub.

Not TEs but to give you an idea, this is what you want in the front. Will need some camber.

Looks good! Do you know if the stock adjustment is enough or will I need camber plates? Also wouldn't mind running 255/35 if I had to in order for it to work.

Unsure sorry, I have Ohlins R/T with camber plates and I think I'm running around -2 up front though, nothing crazy.

Are you still running 265/35 in the front? I have a feeling I'll be able to get those to work instead of downsizing to 255/35.

Okay then I think it's worth getting 265/35 and making them work.

I'm running that wheel on the front of my car with a 265/35. I'm happy with it.

Finally on my dream wheels!

Mag Blue 18x9.5 + 22 squared on 275/35 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. 5mm spacers in the front with a bit of camber, no rubbing. Planning on grabbing a set of 5mm spacers for the rear for fitment purposes.

Little gift to myself to celebrate 12 years of owning my M3!

I went through most of this thread and didn't see my wheel/tire set up yet so figured I'll share a few pics. This is my track set up - looking to drop some lap times with these lightweight wheels!

18x9.5 +15 TE37 SL Pressed Graphite (Gyeon Mohs Evo ceramic coated after purchasing)
275/35 18 Kumho V730 tires

Suspension:
KW V3 coil overs - about 1 inch lower than stock - corner weighted with driver only set up
Dinan fixed camber plates
-2.8/-2.3 degrees camber front/rear

No rubbing except front on the fender liner when fully locked.

I usually go through a set of tires every 4-5 months so we'll see how these Kumho semi slick tires do on track and if I'll be buying them again. So far, its very stiff on the street. Not much road noise though. The width is more like a 285 tire since the tires have square sidewalls and oversized for track use.

Feedback on these tires were a little vague but they held pretty decent grip on my wife's car at Laguna Seca.

Now I know my setup should fit haha. I have the same offset but went with 265/35 instead.

You should have no problem - 265/35 clearance will be much better.

I was a bit concerned with the +15 offset because the common fitment is +20-22. The rear has a bit more space to fit a spacer or even larger wheel/tire if needed. The front is pretty maxed out though. I think it won't clear if I didn't have as much negative camber.

That said, tires are a big factor in this. An RT660 runs even wider for the same size than the V730 I'm running - it may not fit. And something with a round sidewall and narrower tire like a PS4S - I probably wouldn't rub at all.
