TSW Nurburgring 20 for E90 320i

Hi guys,

I was reading some posts about wheels and tires sizes to fit in my car, but I appreciate some specific help to my case.

My idea is TSW Nurbirgring in 20 in size but I have some questions about this wheel:

- To fit on a E90 320i 2010 what´s the exactly size and offset for front and rear wheels? I found in some dealers here in Brazil just the 20x8,5 for front and 20x9 for rear but they have no info about correct offset to fit on my car. What´s the exactly offset these wheels need to have to a perfect fit?

- To fit these wheels, what´s the ideal tire size? I heard about 225/35 R20 for front and 255/30 R20 for rear. Is it enough to have a good fit?

Finally, for a perfect fashion, is it necessary new coils like Eibach to lower the car?

I appreciate any help - here in Brazil is very hard to get any kind of info for this kind of car and this size of wheels...

Sorry about the poor eng.

Thanks in advance!

I guess those wheels only come in one or two different offset, and it nees to by in the mid 30 to fit your car.

I think maybe use 19 inch is better - some people here say the same.

In this case, anybody using TSW Nurburgring in this size?

The 19x8 ET35 and 19x9 ET20 fits the car?

About the tires, 225/30 R19 for front and 245/30 R19 or maybe 255/30 R19 for rear is a good option?

Don't they have a different offset than ET20 for the rear? It's a little low.
And go with 255/30/19.
