328i Msport with 20" style 373M on HR sport

So I had a set of these laying around and decided to test fit them to help me decide specs for my future wheel configuration. I'm lowered on HR sport so I was curious to see the outcome.

We already knew that F10/F12 wheels bolt right up to the F30 thanks to Fotios335i (http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=709645) however the TMPS sensors in the F30 are unique, so if your looking to go this direction they need to be changed (either remove your existing sensors or purchase four 36-10-6-798-872 & 36-14-6-792-829)...or live with the TPMS warning

Front set up pretty much dead flush while the rear still has some room. no rubbing.

Wheels/Tire specs:
Style 373M (found on the 650i Msport)
Front: 245/35 R20x8.5 ET33
Rear: 275/30 R20x9 ET44
Attached Images

That's how members should take pictures. They show how flush they are to the fenders. 20s do look good on the f30s.

Yeah. And he had a lot of problems with them. Unbalanced wheels and one of them was out of round. The ride was noisy and harsh. But jeez, they sure look great. *Pictures saved.

This is - by far - the best looking F30 I've seen. Glacier silver with M-sport is so nice, and the rims... amazing.

I can see that 35 tire profile sits pretty good on F30. I always thought that with 20" the profile must be 30 up front.

On the e36-e9x models it would have been, but on the F30 they upped the tire sizes. I am assuming this was because of numerous complaints of a harsh ride. with non-rft the base and 18 inch cars must be soft as a pillow compared to the e9x cars.

OEM F30 size is 225/35/20 in the front, but these F10 wheels are 245/35/20 in the front, so a bit bigger.

If you want to sell them please pm me. I took off my 356's because I wanted all silver 5 stars. Looks amazing!! Anyone who says f30 is ugly should look at that. Best looking 3 series ever IMO.

After driving 200 miles on them over the weekend (on less than perfect road conditions)I've got to say that I'm really impressed with the ride quality despite being 20's with runflat tires. Even with the car in sport chassis settings and lowered on HR sports the car rides better than my E90 with BMW performance suspension and stock 18" runflats (granted its not a fair or equal comparison).

I'm probably going to run them for another week then put the stock 18's back on until my wheels arrive.

Did you have 19s on your e9x? If so the ride should feel the same as that car did with 19s PLUS have the softness of another generation's worth of fine tuning of the suspension/chassis. Why not keep them on there?

Are those lowered with springs or coilovers? Can I get a link to the suspension? Thanks.

The pictures above are the stock brakes, I have since added the M Performance brembro brake package (yellow calipers).
