Maybe 12 in the front and 17 in the rear sounds great from H&R, maybe someone else can chime in

I advise against them. One of the first accessories I got was mud flaps. Before they arrived the tires would throw quite a bit of road crap onto the front doors, sills and rear quarter panels. Even after putting them on there's still more than I care for. Pushing the wheels further out will only make matters worse. They don't do all that much for handling, and where cosmetics are concerned getting your paint job damaged from road sand and salt isn't going to improve the looks of the car.

Spacers

I have been running spacers on my last two BMW`s. On my E 91 M Sport I had the original 18" wheels with 15 mm spacers in the rear and drove with them for 125 000 km without any trouble. Now I have a F 31 M Sport and I have been running 10 mm spacers front and rear for 95 000 km on the original 19" wheels. The 5th of october I will be picking up my F 34 M Sport also with 19" wheels, my plan is to try the 10 mm spacers from the F 31 on my F 34.

Spacer size update.

I have a 2015 335i xDrive GT with 19" BMW M Performance Double Spoke 598M Rims, Pirelli P Zero Run-flat Tires 225/45 R19 92W (Front) 255/40 R19 96W (Rear)

I installed BMS 12mm spacers front and 15mm back. So far no rubbing but its close in the inner wheel well in the front at full turn. Not close to the body or fenders.

I have bought 15mm h&r spacers for my Original 19" wheels. I will install them when changing to summer wheels. The F30 version should also fit on the F34.

Installing 403m wheels on F34

Hey all,
I am new to this thread and also new to modifying cars. For 2 years I have been driving my GT 320d on long distances, approx 1,500km/month and have plans to change to new tires. With that said, I am looking into purchasing a new wheel to change together with the tires. My personal favorite is the 403m 19" wheels, but i am not sure it will fit the GT due to differences in the offset.

Current 397 rims:
Front and back
Tire: 225/50 R18
Rim: 8Jx18 ET34

New 403m rims:
Front
Tire: 225/40 R19
Rim: 8Jx19 ET36
Back
Tire: 255/35 R19
Rim: 8.5Jx19 ET47

For someone who is very inexperienced, can someone help explain if it would be possible to install the 403m to my F34?

Thanks a lot!
Yang
