I wanted to have them a bit stretched just they'd rub anywhere.. No issues so far!

Ps. These are the minimum width recommended for these wheels.

At first I thought the drop was too much, but after a while it looks perfect.
Awesome! Exact same opinion over here. Glad you like them man.
I've had them for a bit now and I love it, don't know how I drove around in stock height before haha.
My car hasn't fallen apart after a month so it's all good
They should be good for ages as they aren't an aggressive drop.

How do you think this drop would look with 20x9 and 20x10? I'm not sure what type of suspension I have. I have 16 f33 435i m sport.

Depends on the offsets on your wheels mate..
fitment is perfect with OEM 437m wheels - 265/30/19 rears and 235/35/19 fronts

Hey mate
No issues at all - my only regret is not getting them done when I bought the car 4 years ago.
I've never heard of this issue? Where did you see this?

Wow...just wow! I have a ZHP 435i and am thinking of going this exact same route.

Where did you get the wheels?

Have you thought about Dinan bump stops and shockware?

This is the thread I found:
https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1082735
Interesting read. I think the problem comes with the combo they're running.

My set up is adaptive suspension, Michelin ps4s tyres and h&r sport springs.

The guys on that thread seem to be running the bilstein shocks with h&r springs (sport or super sport?) with run flats.. not sure how the top hats would react to that.

I've never bottomed out with my set up and it's very smooth and compliant.

I have hit a giant pothole once on the passenger side and properly shat myself, it was raining heavy and it was night time, didn't even see the thing. The car was and still is fine, but I felt so bad for the car lol.

Hope this helps

What makes you say the super sport will ruin my car? Curious. I have M-sport adaptable suspension and I just upgraded to 19'' wheels and want to remove as much gap as possible. I assumed the supersport would be the way to go.

I have a 2014 435i coupe. I was thinking of going H&R Springs + Bilstein B8 Shocks/Struts because Iíve always heard that getting lowering springs alone would wear out the stock shocks prematurely.

But then the price of H&R Springs + Bilstein B8 is about $800 or so.... and with $200 more, I could just get the BC Racing Coilovers. Hard decision.
