Wheels

Will these wheels using 225/40/19 front and 255/35/19 fit? I have the H&R sports springs.

E9X M3 19" BMW Style 220 Jet Black Wheel Set (Genuine BMW)
Part #: E9X-M3-19-STYLE-220-BLACK-RIMS

The front wheels are 8.5" x 19" and the rears are 9.5" x 19". Fits E90 E92 E93 M3's.

What other setup would you recommend.


Thanks.

The E9X M3's OEM style 220 wheels will really stick out if you install them on the F30 3 series. The ET will be way too aggressive!!

For your reference, these are the style 220 wheels specs: Front 19 x 8,5J ET:29, Rear 19 x 9,5J ET:23.

I don't really recommend fitting a 245 tire on a 9.5J wheel. It will be stretched out. A 9.5J with ET 23 wheel in the rear will stick way way out no matter what size tire you fit it with!

For a nice and a staggerd fit, I would recommend 19 x 8,5J ET:34 to 36, Rear 19 x 9,5J ET: 40 to 47 fitted with 225/40-19 or 235/35-19 front and 255/35-19 or 265/30-19 rear.
