I just received and mounted a new set of 19" f10 wheels and tires from **********s. Great purchase experience but when I got the wheels something didn't seem right.
Front - 19x8.5 ET35 /
Rear - 19x9.5 ET38 (+$100.00)
Finish:Silver Machined Face
245/40R19 & (2) 275/35R19 Hankook Ventus V12
When I put them on the car yesterday I was pretty sure they didn't look right
- way too beefy and almost no clearance.
I slept on it and called **********s this morning. They said to come by.
I'm here now and have to say that these guys are great business men and stand by their reputation - they determined that due to the 38 offset in the rear, the tire figment might be a little aggressive - though technically within spec and recommended.
Because the car is so new, everyone is still figuring this stuff out (fair).
I referenced the 328i they did here recently and asked if they would be willing to swap my tires for a size down to match that setup.
Without argument they agreed to do so at no cost - right now.

So I'm sitting here in the showroom waiting as they breakdown and rebuild all four wheels for free and take back a set of used tires - mainly because they had a customer who was unhappy with the product received. I'm sure they'll take a small hit on the tires - but great long term decision on their part. They just got a customer for life and here I am paying it forward.
I'll post pics when the car is done
