Anyone have photos of their car on pressed double black TE37SL? I'm waiting for my set to arrive and need something to get me by

Just put a deposit on my set!!!!!
Went with Pressed Graphite for my Alpine White E90
Going to be lowered on swift springs too

19x9.5 +22 Front probably a 255/35 tire
19x10.5 + 22 Rear 285/30

I'm so pumped to get the wheels. Still have to wait about 5 months for them though 🤦*♂️. Should be ready for spring at least.

I would recommend 265 front. It's an easy fit and works perfectly with those wheel specs.

Hmm I have 255/35/19 on right now with the same wheel specs. I guess I'll take a look when I actually lower the car and see how it looks.

I need your guys opinion. Should i run 40s? Or keep 35s? I have space to run 40s so 265/40 front and 285/40 18s right now they are 255/35/18 front and 275/35/18

I personally wouldn't do a 40 sidewall. That's going to be too tall and I don't think it'll look good. 255/35 or 265/35 fronts and 285/30 is my preference. That way front and back will have a similar height.

265/35/18, 285/35/18 is a very common size that most folks run with staggered sets.

Looking at the tire size calculator though 255/35 and 285/30 are closer in diameter than 265/35-285/30. Not sure how big of a deal that is though.

How are you comparing? 275/35 is the best for the front if you are attempting to compare to stock diamters. The rear 285/35 would be the best not 285/30. That said, a lot of folks want to keep the 20mm staggered difference like stock so 265/35, 285/35 is the best compromise.

Front Tire diameters:
245/40/18 = 25.7"
255/35/18 = 25" -2.7%
265/35/18 = 25.3" -1.6%
275/35/18 = 25.6" -0.4%

Rear Tire Diameters:
265/40/18 = 26.3"
275/35/18 = 25.6" -2.7%
285/35/18 = 25.9" -1.5%
285/30/18 = 24.7" -6%

I'm comparing the front to the rear. I'm not comparing it to factory sizing.

My mistake on the 19s sizing. 😂

255/35/19 and 285/30/19 are GTS sizing
