Forgestars. 19x9 +35 and 19x10 +45... I ordered them about 4 weeks ago. Should be another two weeks before I get them.

It's good that you're in Houston, our cars may end up matching.

Trick question - Neither.... CF5V

I have to say that I'm slightly concerned that they've changed the 'color' of their Gunmetal. I saw a pic on Facebook and they looked light grey. We shall see.....

Oh wow... I didn't even realize they sold those! I may have to change over to that now...

I'm so excited for you - they're going to look fantastic!

Thanks, I'm pretty excited too. I just called them and they said that they only have one shade of Gunmetal. The picture I was worried about on Facebook is from SEMA and the lighting there made it look light grey but its the same Gunmetal they've always used.

Can't wait! I'll post pics as soon as I get them but it won't be for another week or two.

Your ET for front and rear are very far from fender's edges, therefore you won't get rub but fitment looking not so aggresive I think.

I see a lot of discussion here about offsets but all the specs I'm seeing seem very conservative. I'm not new to fitment but I have no experience with BMW fitment. Guess it's a completely different world.

Dont really look like I have that much more room to work with. Let me know what offset your were able to figure out that works as close as possible with no rub.

Ric with your setup: Front 19x8.5 ET40 235/35R19XL, Rear 19x9.5 ET45 265/30R19XL

Based on your tire size, you could have gone with 19x8.5 et35 or et33 in the front. 19x9.5 et45 seems about right. You could have maybe went et40.

A member on here Scott@bmw is running 19x9.5 et38 I think on 265/35 with no rubbing.

I'm running 265/30/19 with 19x9.5 rims and 38 offset. I'm lowered with H & R Super Sport and no rubbing. There isn't much room and I haven't had my car aligned.

FYI...Tirerack told me that there can be as much as an 1" fender width difference between the same Year, make and model car.

My setup will stick out 3mm (0.12in) further than yours. I know you said there isn't much room but do you think there's at least 3mm?

That's scary if what Tirerack says is true. 1" is A LOT

Your car looks like it sits higher than mine. What springs are you running.

It is stock suspension. By the way, your M adaptive suspension is ordered from after-market or from BMW? What is the main different from Sport package even M Performance suspension? Do you have it's part number for reference? Thanks.

Actually my rear wheel is wider than edge of fender, could be more than 3mm which around 5mm or more.

Can you post a couple of pics of your rear wheel in relation to your fender? My setup will stick out just as much as yours and it would help me out a lot.

Thanks!

Adaptive M was ordered with the car, sport line with adaptive M . It works with driver modes Comfort to sport. Not sure if its as simple as buying and putting them on may need some coding.

I took the sport springs off and replaced it with H&R Sports. This setup gives a much stiffer setup than sport pkg in Sport/Sport+ mode and softer feel in eco/comfort mode.

I wasnt able to find a part number but this what I think this is the order code.

S2VFA ADAPTIVES M FAHRWERK Adaptive M suspension

a 19x10+37 with a 265/30 is said to fit the same as your setup...
