Widest Wheel Set Ups on NON M3 E92's

hey guys!

i know there is a link on this forum for this - http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...56&postcount=1

but from what i can see mainly they are discussing M3 fitment and as we all know the M3's are alot wider on the rear so can get away with a little more than we can on SE and M Sport models

i am currently looking at a new set of wheels but i want to know what the widest set up is that i can go for front and rear!

if you guys have any ideas or feel you are running an aggressive set up please post up pics and measurements

thanks!

11j rear is probably the widest I'd go for on rears bro, anything more and it'll be virtually impossible or you'll have to really go '-ve' on camber.. Check out the 'HELLA FLUSH' thread in the US section and you'll see some mad whips there lolll..

yea but its ET52, to have space for adapters and spacers and run an 11J is not something that i want to be doing to be honest! no point having an 11J if you still need to run spaces to get the look you are going for! just my opinion i guess...

ET52 or anywhere near that is not normal for BMW fitment wheels in 19"s is it? maybe i am mistaken so any input on this would be cool!

I am far from an expert on offsets - why you need anything beyond 10J which is an easy fit, I dont know ? Best to talk to a specialist like CM Wheels or BM AutoSport - but you know that I spose !!

Check out these threads and have a red through some of the posts (pics included!)

There is a Space Grey E92 which has the nicest stance/flush look I've seen hands down on any E92 on this forum but is very much on par witht he white E92 as well..... kinda look I'm aiming for

I'm bloody well praying mine are 10j rears and not less as the seller wasn't 100% lol! Otherwise it may get expensive buying the dishes alone!!

As said bro, 11j is possible but I would much rather go for 10j, play safe and make it look the nuts, that's exactly what I'll be doing and 10j is tried and tested! 11j, ull have to start playing with spacers etc so upto you really.
