The lower the offset the more the rims stick out.

I want HRE P44SC, but I need to save "some" before that is a reality!
8.5x20 up front and 10.5 in the back. Not as extreme widths as jzhang and longtran but should look good enough.

There is a difference between 'fitting' and fitting without rubbing, even when slightly lowered.

10 ET38 pokes like a 9.5 ET32. I would have to guess this will rub with either a drop or when going over large bumps with a decent sized tire & no fender work.

If this is the case then x10 +38 should "fit" also. Hopefully with just slightly narrow tires and slight drop...Maybe 265 width tires.

I'm going with the 18" 397's 'cause I really like the look of them much better than the 19" 401's. Also get the added benefits of a smoother ride, less weight (~18 lbs for all 4 wheels), and the ability to rotate.

20s

I have 20s on mine and it looks good. I posted pics on another thread. Check it out. They are 20x9 in the front and 20 x10 in the rear. No rubbing what so ever and it fits just right.

I know I'm a little late to the party. I come in peace.

I would go with more rubber than 235/35. My reasoning is due to the 235/35's having a pretty light load rating at "91" combined with the tiny sidewall equals lots of pothole dodging.

Unfortunately I was not given the same advice, so I thought I'd pass my experience along.

I have 20" oem 356 wheels off of a 6 series on my car with 245/30 and 275/30 runflats and there is plenty of tire even with the low profiles. I think the 20's suit the size of the car well but Im undecided if I want to go back to 19's and lower. I think it looks good I just have to get better pictures.


heres a couple, and heres a link to my thread http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=709645

Wow that looks really good. Did you lower the car? I see a little gap.

Just madaptive suspension. The gap isnt really that bad but sometimes on an incline the front looks higher. I would love to lower the car but want to wait a bit and see what options come up.
