19" M6 Wheels E92 328i Coupe Tire Help

Hey What's going on guys? I just purchased new wheels for my 328i Coupe and After much reading determined what size tires would be best. Before I pull the trigger I wanted to get some opinions.

I am considering 235/35/19 up front... and 265/30/19 in the rear. Here are my wheels:

Wheels:

19x8.5 Front; Offset 37
19x9.5 Rear; Offset 33

I just put 18's x 8 and 9" on my 328xi and they fit with 20 & 32 ET. Yours will but will need spacers to get out of that sunken in look.

If you wanted to roll your rear fenders you can do 12mm spacers all around.

Ehhh... I really would want to avoid modifying my fenders.. Will this setup I have now require me to do that? or are you saying if I add spacers to bring the wheel/tire closer to flush with the fender, than I would have to roll the fender

Only if you put on spacers.

^+1 the size and offsets you got are what most get if they just want a bolt on fitment.

Smoked side signals and reflectors are on their way. I am kind of nervous after reading some
Install horror stories on the reflectors. Should I heat and pry or use chemical like goo gone

Use heat. I turned the wheel to full lock and heated mine from the backside with a harbor freight heat gun then pried em off with a screwdriver (gently). Clean the inner part real good so the adhesive for the new ones sticks tight. How did you black out your window trim? paint or wrap? I wanna get mine done soon.

Wheels look PIMPIN!

Thanks! I couldn't be happier. I found a guy through this forum in the Philadelphia area who does the vinyl wrap for the trim. He did it for hundreds less than my local custom shop and he is an enthusiast alike the rest of us. He used a much thicker vinyl than the shadowline I was going to provide him and it came out fantastic
