Aaaaaaannnnd... STILL no coilovers. I hate waiting, I seriously can't stand it. #FirstWorldProblems

I'm gonna put on my wheels Saturday. Have my shop swap the TPMS out, mount and balance, throw the appropriate sizes spacers on and have my fenders rolled. It will poke slightly for a week or 2... But it will save me time and make feel like this build is actually moving along. It's been too stagnant waiting for this stuff.

Go with 265/35 on the rears. You'll clear it. I ran 19x9.5 +35 with 265/35. Cleared with camber.

Planning on running 255/35 on all 4 corners. About to order my BC Coilovers as well. From my calculations the fitment should be PERFECT in the front with the right drop and like -2.5ish degrees of camber. I'm not really concerned about the rears right now. Once I dial these bad boys in, I'll know the limitations of fitment for the fronts of these cars and will be able to order the correct specs for my Work SP3s.




these wheels look awesome where did you get them from are they hub centric?

Can you post up details of your entire brake setup? Calipers, pads, rotors? Looking to upgrade sometime soon. TY

Got the wheels put on today. I'm very pleased with the look of them. Even more so, the minimal amount of stretch on the 9.5 with 255/35. I wanted to do 255/40 all around, but these will do for now. Wheel specs are 19x9.5 et37 all around, 5mm spacers in the front to clear the strut and 12mm spacers in the rears to match the poke of the fronts.

Here's a pick of the inner clearance for reference. I could probably do a 265/35 with an 8mm spacer and -3 camber, but I'm trying to keep it at -2 or less.



Pictures of the wheels mounted. Pissed that my black BMW Roundels don't fit these openings.











I got the rear fenders rolled just for the extra few mm of space to reduce any potential rubbing. Hopefully my coilovers will be here within the next 2 weeks. One day at a time.

I would have, but since these are my beater wheels I wanted a square setup. I'll probably do a 265/35 front and 295/35 rear setup when I get my real wheels. Still playing around with fitment ideas right now.

eBay my friend. Lol. But you can find them all over the forums. Lots of resellers on here.

This is the standard 335i setup. 4 pot Brembo front calipers with the 340mm rotors. I purchased the 4 pot rears to get rid of the shitty stock one. I have to order the 345mm rear rotors to make them work. From my research, this is the same setup on the M235i from the factory. I'll be ordering the 340mm front, 345mm rear drilled and slotted rotors from R1CONCEPTS with ceramic pads, priced it out for like $670ish. I have like 25% life on my OEM pads and I'm at 40K miles on the rotors so I may end up doing this by the end of the year. Wanted to wait until next year, but I'll do what I have to do.
