Cool Pics of my F31 with staggered 19" 351 M double spoke wheels & KW coil-overs...

I did my 19" rim test fit today and feel these wheels should have been a factory option on the F31... now it has the m sport worthiness imo...







The last pic below is of the standard 18" rim front and the 19" rim rear for comparison.



I like to keep a near factory look with a subtle up-size... only car guys would take notice.

Determining the correct tires size has been the challenge... these are also mounted without spacers in place (look great as is). Rim wise ... the fronts are 8.5" and the rears are 9".

Cheers!

VERY well done! I am so jealous of your coils. Waiting for Bilstein to release something for the F36! Which KW do you have? I had the V1 on my Audi S5 and loved the ride though I had to get a different spring because the rear sagged too much (a common problem I hear).

With my test fit in the pics I'm running a 225/40/19 front (8.5") and a 255/35/19 rear (9").

However, since the front rim is a 8.5" on the front I'm going to try a 245/35/19 up front to fit the wider rim a bit better. Stay tuned.

The overall diameter of the 19" wheel and tire is the same as the 18's at apprx 26".

Cheers!

I LOVE the look of the F31 M Sport to begin with. Yours is bad ass.

I agree with the wheel options. If we're paying $45k plus, open up the wheel options a tad.

Looks awesome! I actually wanted the dealer to swap those on to my F31 instead of the 403M wheels, but they wouldn't do it.

That's pretty sweet

Is the f31 longer than the f30? It sure seems to be much bigger than an f30 in the pics!

Awesome mods. I have the same car, same color (diesel version) and you've pretty much hit all the mods I plan on doing in the future except for the coilovers. I've had a pretty bad experience with coilovers on my previous car with rusting and corrosion. Living in the northeast with salt every in the winter really did a number on the lifespan. Also the whole removing them after x # of years and getting a rebuild isn't too appealing either.

The only coils that rust in our shitty weather are shitty coils. Get KW's or Bilstein's and you'll be fine.

What's the mileage for rebuilds on KW's or Bilsteins? I couldn't find anything on their websites.

I honestly have no idea, but I've heard the warranty is decent.
