Smile New Shoes - Ace Alloy Convex Matte Black 20" on AW335i

All,

I just got a new set of wheels and wanted to post it up on here. Sorry for the poor pics, but wanted to throw them up real quick. Wheel/tire specs are below

Please don't flame me for running the below tire setup. I think it looks awesome and it's amazingly smooth. The 35 series helps. I know the speedo will be off a bit, but I'm okay with that.

The car is also not lowered. It's on the stock sportline suspension. There is a little bit of stretch in the rear, which I knew, but I can deal with it!

20x8.5, ET 35, 245/35/20
20x10, ET 40, 255/35/20

I want to thank rich at GTB and rossifumi as well as few others for helping answer all the questions I had about offsets and tire specs, etc. I love the look of the car with this setup and drives way smoother than the stock 18" runflats. I am not going to lower it either, I like the way it looks and handles with the new wheels!

Thanks to Zoeb at WheelDude Garage for the Falken FK453 tires! They are smooth and very quiet!!

Looks great!

Nice to see that you went ahead with the 35-series tires.

I have understand that you have similar thoughts about wheels as I, because of the questions you have raised here on the forum. It has helped me a lot too.

However I plan to choose a rear tire with 265mm width, and one inch in rim width difference (8/9" or 8.5/9.5") to achieve tires that fits similar on the front and rear wheels. I also want to minimize the tire stretch to get some rim protection.

I dont think your speedo will be off, I actually think it will be spot on! My speedo show a bit higher speed than the actual with OEM M 400 wheels, when I compared with a GPS.

Thank you!! Its amazing still can't believe how much smoother the 20" wheels ride like.

Glad my posts have helped you decide on your set of wheels and tires. You may be able to get away with 265/35 in the rear but I'd test it to make sure.

I heard the speedo will be off because the tires are taller than stock and the wheels are heavier... But have not been able to get confirmation from anyone...
