Coilovers were installed yday so I'll prob adjust a lil bit and get an alignment to fix. I love the new look...now I need the m sport bumper
In the same situation with mine right now. Getting my alignment done tomorrow and have a fender roller on order. I might adjust the stiffness of the rear shock as well.

How many colors do the 437m come in?
I am on stock suspension. With our aggressive front lip, lowering the car will just cause me to scrape more. The wheels are gloss black and I got them from a fellow member in the member classifieds. These wheels are OEM (offsets) and the previous owner had them refinished gloss black, which I like also. If you do plan to get some, I would check the classifieds and the forum for third party sites. I cannot remember the one website I found but you can get the OEM spec 437M wheels for around $1100-$1300 a set which is better than buying from BMW.

245/45/18, 275/40/18 , both 26.7", will fit on oem 513M, however there is a possibility the front tire will rub the fenderwell liner during full lock turn, due to the height of the tire and +29 offset. your acceleration will also become more sluggish due to it being taller(gearing at pavement), heavier and having more rolling resistance. although it will provide a better ride and impact protection, personally i think it looks too "beefy" but, to each everyone's own, i guess.

to me the best tire size combo for 513M on F3/4 series x-drives are 235/45/18, 265/40/18. both 26.3" diameter, will provide a little more sidewall for ride and impact, more grip without affecting performance too much while filling the fenderwell gap for x-drives not lowered and getting the gap nice and tight for those that are. 235/45/18 is a bit stretched on 9" and it's the only thing i don't like about the size combo.

Hey guys I just bought oem 437m from M2:

9J x 19 ET 29 front.
10J x 19 ET 40 rear.

I have xdrive and stock suspension (335i), whats the perfect tire sizes to not break the xdrive nor scrape?

235/35 and 265/35?
Or
235/40 and 265/35?

Thanks.

235/40/19 & 265/35/19

Going to look pretty pokey & the ride height will be hideous with the stock xDrive susp set up though!

No rubbing. I would go with 245/40/19 in the front next time. Otherwise they are perfect.
Did you try the 245/40/19 too? I've been doing a lot of reading and it seems like these might rub. I have a 340i RWD M-sport stock, I just bought a set of 437's and I'm really itching to try the firehawks too. I was thinking 235/40 and 265/35 but annoyingly the firehawks don't come in that size for the fronts. Considering the 245/40 but worried about rubbing. Can anyone else confirm/deny that that size would work in front on a non-xDrive?

I'd go with 245/35r19 up front.

Stock tire sizes are 225/45r18 (all around if square) and 255/40r18 (in the rear if staggered).

245/40r19 are 2.7% (.7" in diameter) bigger than stock front fitment.

265/35r19 are 1.2% (.3" in diameter) bigger than stock rear fitment.

245/35r19 in front will be .8% (.2" in diameter) SMALLER than stock.

The 245/40r19s in front MIGHT induce some reverse rake. I can also say that 245/35r19 don't rub at all on my lowered RWD 335.

After 7 months of stalking this thread and re-reading the posts over & over I've finally decided to pull the trigger on a set of OEM 437M's! This thread was a huge reason I decided these were the wheels for me, and I knew I had to come back to post here for the first time, thank you!

Congrats, they are great wheels. You really can't get better forged wheels for the price, assuming you find a reasonably priced used set.

Very hard to find something forged that looks as good AND fits as aggressively on our platform. I've been wanting to change it up to aftermarket wheels, and I keep coming back to the conclusion that these wheels really can't be beat unless I want to spend at least double to triple what these cost me. I just wish they weren't so common.

Yeah I have never been a fan of using 'stock' wheels ok cars but somehow these just work so well. As for them being common I've only ever seen them on M cars and where I live they aren't too abundant hahaha so I think I've been good. Super satisfied with them, especially since they're M2 spec so 265 rear and 235 front, love the fitment.
