Really wish there was a way to get more sidewall on them, but they ride fine.

Absolutely beautiful... Are those replicas or oem? If not, the. What do you think about replicas??

400M vs 437M


This is the angle that's deceiving. If you set your eye on the same plane as the flat part of the fender, right above the tire, there is only the slightest bulge of the sidewall proud of the fender. Difficult to photograph with a phone.

Hi SLOWER, Your car looks amazing!

These are the stock tires supplied on the F8x, right? Have you heard/seen any rubbing etc?

Crazy question: say you were to lower the car a few inches on coilovers or airbags - do you think the 437M and OEM tire sizes would tuck? Forget driving while that low, just parked.

No my tires are 235/35 and 265/30. M3/M4 are taller and wider. No rubbing or issues at all. I could definitely go lower with no problems. I just like the happy medium of the height I'm at.

I tried the set with the stock tires, they were rubbing like a mofo with no passengers. I'm lowered on H&R lowering springs.

I will take the straight front picture to show you guys "how strecthed" the tires are, there is barely any rim protection if any.. I curbed my right side wheels, but it was not because of curb, I had to swerve from an animal crossing the road, went on to curb.. I will post pics as soon as I can..

EDIT: I got new exhaust on too, I will add more pics..
If you wouldn't mind clarifying.

Are you saying the stock tires on a M4 w/437M would rub on 335?

Or are you saying stock tires from 19" 403M from 335 w/staggered would rub on 437M rims on 335?

stock tires from the 437M will rub (even though some people claim they don't I tested in person and they did rub)

stock tires from 403M are fine on 437M

I am planning to change my 18" 400M wheels-RFTs with these beauties (437M OEM) on my EB F31 M Sport,using non-RFTs.
I'm between 225-40/255-35 or 235/35-265/30 tyre setup.
I'd like to know the opinions of the people who had already made this conversion.
I believe that the unsprung weight reduction (lighter wheels and tyres) will be noticeable and will help the car's behavior,but I'm afraid that I may have increased fuel consumption and deteriorate the car's performance.
My car is a "poor" AT 316i (136 hp-petrol)and some folks suggest me not to follow the 19" route,but I think that it'll be OK since the rolling diameter will be basically the same with my existing setup.
What are your thoughts,please?
Any help much appreciated.

225/255 would be extremely stretched on these wheels. 235/265 is where you want to be.

I have them installed, idk if you read the original post. slighlty stretched but works on my end. For anyone else, 225/255 has been tested and works, if you want to go with 235/265 its your choice. Let me know too if anyone does this, tested with passangers too. I will need new tires sooner or later.

Including myself

This looks like the proper tire setup for 437m. Just enough thickness (that's what she said LOL) on the sidewalls.

BTW: What are you lowered on?
