New Wheel Options?

I am coming from an e90 where I have a beautiful set of Volk Forged rims with perfect offsets for my staggered setup.

What I am looking for is input on what the ideal offset would be on a 2016 340Xi with the big brake calipers? I want to get much lighter wheels in either 19 or maybe go with the bigger tire 18 inch look. Looking to drop about 8- plans per corner from this heavy OEM rims. Will also slap on Michelin PSS to further enhance the grip and loose some further weight per corner.

In terms of Wheel brands I will look at VOLK, HRE, Apex, Forgestar. Any other brands in the game I should look at?

Thanks!

there are quite a few more brands to consider. advan, vsforged, vorsteiner (forged), bbs (forged), OZ forged, Avant Garde (forged), vossen forged, many more i can't think of at the moment. edit added klassen, velos

it'd be easier if you described what style of wheel you prefer and if you are going to run square or staggered.

for square i'd go 18x9, +35ish, 255/40/18 or 19x9, +35ish, 255/35/19

for staggered, 18x8.5, +35ish, 235/45/18F, 18x9.5, +40ish, 265/40/18R
or 19x8.5, +35, 235/40/19F and 19x9.5, +40ish, 265/35/19R

We offer Vossen X Work wheels made in Japan which might be more your style.

Here is a pic of the VWS-1 in 20" sizes. We offer 19" as well.

As above. OZ racing are excellent (light) wheels.
