Thoughts on 305 forged ft107 wheels?

Any suggestions for aftermarket wheels for an f32? Best find so far is this one. https://305forgedwheels.com/collecti...18622338433105

What are your criteria? Size? Price? Weight considerations? Caliper considerations?

literally the sky is the limit with wheel choices for BMWs. hit up any of our sponsor's websites for wheel selection and browse the photo gallery for aftermarket wheels

225x45x18 front and 255x40x18 rear, debating on going up to 19's or sticking with this size but with different tires and wheels. I'd like to stay within the 1200-1500 range.

I'm not really a fan of the glossy black look but for your car color I think it'll go well with it.

1200-1500 for wheels alone or that includes new tires, tpms, etc.??

if you are sticking with the stock tires and 18s why even get wheels? just slap some spacers on to space them out some. id recommend shelving the 18s and getting 19s with new tires. the 18s can be put back on when you go to sell or trade the car in.

Haha sorry I mean I'm planning on getting completely new tires with my new wheels but that pricing is just for wheels alone. Right now I have spacers 12 front and 20 rear. I think 19s would be a better option too, thanks!

My personal preference is to go with 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear with 235/40 fronts and 265/35 rear.

Brands you can look at are Adventi, Apex, 305forged and Forgestar. Those will have options that are 12-1500 And are flow formed and therefore lighter. There are other flow formed wheels that are also light but are pricier such as HRE, vorsteiner and lots of others.

Yeah I saw a set of wheels from vorsteiner that are just like the 305forged ones that I posted here but double the price thanks again!

Btw, they are out of stock of the 19x8.5 +40, would it be okay if I got the +32 instead?

32mm is a good offset. Are you now or plan to be lowered? xDrive or rwd?

Now they said the the rear wheels will only come in 19x9.5 et 40 instead of 35. I already bought tires size 235/40 and 265/35. Please let me know if this would be fine or if I should look elsewhere, sorry I donít know much about sizing! Thanks.

19x8.5 +32 with 235/40/19 front, 19x9.5 +40 with 265/35/19 rear will fit perfect on your car.

Offset only affects where your wheel/tire sits relative to the fender and suspension, it doesn't affect the size tire you can fit on the wheel. Those sizes are perfect as aloha said...
