Front will extend 20mm, and rear will extend 26mm.
Don't know if that's too much though.

Wow, for once, the M wheels look like an almost direct fit for the non-m cars.

I've seen people posting 9j x 20 30 offset and 10j x 20, 40 offset installed without any problems.

If you have a good relation with your SA, I suggest you go there and try them on to see the fit.
I know my SA would do it, just to see the looks it gives to the car...

Will work on a lowered car (as the camber will tuck them). On stock height they will be 10-15mm outside the fender.
My HRE where an identical fitment (look at my older threads).

Thanks for the reply guys. i saw these wheels on F30 and it looked damn cool. i am planning to select more conservative tires not the same as the stock M4, so for the front 245/35/19 and rear 265/30/19. i checked on tirerack.com and found these tires for BMW. will that make difference? do i still need spacers?

Since they are already limit on fitment, don't put spacer as things will get worse.

Spacer substract from the offset, so the wheel will stick out more.

No plan for spacers don't like them anyway,, I am planning front 245/35/19 and rear 265/30/19, will it rub on stock M sport suspensions?

It will look silly on stock suspension. The wheels will be 10-15mm outside the fender. You need to lower the car.

235/35/20 and 275/30/20 would be better

245/35 is almost .5 inch taller than 265/30 IMO

It is not recommended to put 20" tires on 19" wheels...

the 235/35/20 will work too as the stock are 225/40/19 so it should be ok with no rub,, however i am not sure about the rear i am a bit worried that 275/30/20 will be aggressive thats the only reason i was checking the 265/30/20..

need to check on tire rack.com if its can be done.
thanks for the help

Link? What you probably saw were 20" M5 wheels (or knock-offs).


This has been covered numerous times.

i saw it parking nearby, don't have a photo sorry,,, and i am sure its 437M i had the M5 wheels, or actually i still do have them in my garage after selling my F10 however i couldn't find anyway to fit these M5 oem rims on my F32,, thats why when i saw these black rims on that car i was shocked, it looked really nice.

Stay tuned, I will have 513s to try on my 3 in the next couple days. I honestly think it will be okay at stock height and killer lowered.

I ordered H&R Sport springs, hope I don't rub with a 255 on the front. Any one running H&R sports, x9 Et +29, with a 255?
