Talking Just put on my NEW SHOES!! What do yall think?

At first I was a little hesitant on getting the AG M359's but I can say now without a doubt I am glad I did !!!! Pictures don't do this wheel justice. Also, the tires I'm running are Michelin PSS's. 1st off, those Potenza's are GARBAGE, and I'm really sorry if I offend, but even with going from 18" to 19" and Potenza RFT to Michelin PSS the ride has substantially been improved. At first I was a little torn between the attractive pricing of the V12 Hankook's and the PSS's handling and boy am I glad I chose the latter and went with the PSS's. Excellent cornering, superior ride comfort, little to no road noise. Almost like a new car. Here are some pictures I just took with my iPhone camera, also car is a little dirty. But what do yall think? Btw I'm running 19x9 +35 & 235/35/19 in the front and 19x10 +38 265/30/19 in the rear, 0 rubbing, didn't fold or modify anything to accommodate them.

So stock sport suspension with just a straight swap to the 19s? Looks good.

I've read that even the sport suspension is tuned soft to balance with the hard RFTs and I'm nervous going to non RFTs without a suspension upgrade as it would result in too soft of a ride. However, you seem happy, so that's good to hear.

I didn't know we could fit 10" wide on the rears of a 335i.

Yep, all stock suspension. As for the ride, that's kinda the reason I went with the PSS's because they have a stronger sidewall (Like the RFT's) vs. V12's etc. So turning real hard or quick lane changes with my new setup actually seems to be improved. These PSS's really have excellent grip, I had my doubts at first but they're way out the window.

Yeah I was thinking about dropping the front a little, but I was first planning on getting the rear valence/bumper changed and putting the m3 rocker panels on it. What wheels would you prefer to get PSUSMU?

Lol, well the good thing is I haven't seen any 90/92's here in Houston with the same wheels so I guess I lucked out. I was split between these and the Morr's but then I'd have to wrap them in the V12's so I sort of made a compromise between the two lol. + maybe in a year or 2, I'll be upgrading to the F10 which I am looking forward to, which is why modifying the rest of the body is kind of in the air. But for the meantime I think I'm quite content with what I've got. I was looking for a conservative/aggressive look for the wheels.

I think they and the car look sweet. Colors work very well together.

Outside of a at forum where we stare at modded e9x all day, no one will have your same setup that you'll ever run into. Enjoy.

I agree with Ghost, the wheels seem to match well. I also tend to be biased towards some conservatism instead of boldness, which I think is well balanced on your car.

You say the sidewalls are a bit stiffer. How does your setup feel over potholes and bumps?

That's kinda rude, no comment is better than your comment.

Not too bad really, I strongly try to avoid potholes as much as I can lol but on normal bumps and cracks they really aren't all that bad, atleast compared to the stock rft's I was running before.

hahaha!!!
I have the same wheels coming in, with the exact specifications you have...except I got mine with the Hankook V12's! Ah, and mine are matte black!
Let me know how your tires work for you! I might try those when I run through them!

Dope car btw!

Car looks great. Looks like you have the conservative/aggressive balance you were looking for.

Played out? They are a popular style for a reason.....they look great on our cars. I'd personally go for something I like rather than worry about its popularity. Nice job!
