New Forgestar wheels BSM M Sport

Hey all,

Specs: Forgestar F14 Gloss Gunmetal

19x8.5 Front ET+32 (Semi-Concave) 235/35/19 Michelin PSS
19x10 Rear ET+38 (Deep-Concave) 265/30/19 Michelin PSS

Also installed was the Dinan Performance Suspension Kit (Springs/Bump Stops)

Overall I am really happy with the setup. Ride quality/comfort is close to stock with the springs and the handling has greatly improved with reduced body roll.

Here are some before pics (sorry all are courtesy of the crappy iPhone camera)

STOCK:


WHEELS ONLY NO SPRINGS STOCK X DRIVE RIDE HEIGHT


WHEELS AND DINAN SPRINGS

Looks great! Did you have any issues with the wheels?

I will never buy Forgestars again, lol! 3 wheels had too much paint on them so they wouldn't even fit so I had to sand them down in the center. Then they didn't seal with the tires so it was A LOT of work involved just to get them to keep the air pressure. But they look great!

Car looks great! Isn't 235/265 tires too short for X-Drive cars? I think BMW requires tires be within .3" of stock 25.9" tires. I was going to be running 19x9 and 19x10's, and my research shows I have to go 225/255's, or 245/275's to stay within specs.

No issues at all, I'm surprised at the issue you had. I've always heard good things about forgestar.

Me too, I think it is the finish I have. I ordered textured black so it is quite thick. The wheels look great and are light and well made in all other aspects.

Did you order direct from forgestar?

I meant to weight the oem setup vs the new to see the overall weight difference but didn't, have to wait until I swap for winter

No, I ordered them via M.O.D.B.A.R.G.A.I.N.S. The wheels are great now and work perfectly, it was just that I didn't expect to be forced to modify the wheels for 1.5h to make them fit the car and keep the air inside of the tires.

I didn't weigh them either but when you lift them both they feel a lot lighter and the car feels awesome with them paired with Michelin PSS. I came from 20" HRE's with Pirellis and it is like night and day better than that setup but I put that down to the Pirellis (+ its thin profile) since the HRE were even lighter...

Looking to use Dinan for drop, since it's a little less than H&R, + warranty.
Was the install done at a BMW dealer ?
