Talking Wheel and tires size question

Im deciding on getting the VB3's since I had them on my 335i and loved the look...

Was wondering will the 19x8.5 +20 and 19x10 +25 fit just fine?

Actually the rears will just wondering if the offest was too low for the fronts.

Ill be running on H&R sports, I dont want to run crazy camber or roll fenders.

Also will running the OEM Michelin Pilot Sport 225/40 and 255/35 be fine? Im thinking they would just cuz those tires are pretty wide and beefy for those sizes compared to other tires, like falken..

Thanks

Default Re: Wheel and tires size question

The offset on the front will be a bit to aggressive. I would suggest that if you want to have a no-hassle set up, that you get the ET40 up front and the ET25 on the rear if you want to go with a 10" VB3.

As for tire sizes, I would suggest running a 245/35-19 up front and a 275/30-19 in the back. This is pretty standard for those size wheels.

If you want to get a set, feel free to contact me directly via PM, email or call me direct at:

Really +40 in the front, seems like that would be too high, I want the flush flush look..

If you want more flush than that, I would suggest going with Sportline CS.16's instead because the front offset is 35 instead of 40, but the rears don't come in a 10", only 9.5" is available at this time.

If you really want a 10" rear, then I would suggest getting VMR's and then adding spacers mainly because there isn't another 10" wide CSL replica wheel, and more importantly, you wont find a more aggressive offset than ET35 from sportlines, so it's totally up to you.

Take the advice from someone who has actually ran different setups.

Those offsets will be perfect if you want to be slightly conservative. You could even add a small spacer to the front if you wanted.

I ran the VB3's in 19x9.5 +22 with a 245/35/19 and 19x10 +15 with a 275/30/19.

Here's some pics.

Man that looks sick. So even if I wanted to do my initial size I'll be fine.

How much camber did you run in the front?

Yes, your initial size you stated would be 11mm less flush in front that what I have pictured.

In this pictures I am running approximately -2 degrees of camber.
