wheel fitment question on e92 335i

So heres the deal, my friend has a set of falken koblenz on his convertible 350z that I'm looking to buy for my 07 e92 but his wheels are 19x10.5 with a 10+ offset all around. But the smallest conveter (5x114.3 to 5x120.7) I have found is 10mm thick which would put the offset at 0+ if I'm understanding this correctly..my question is if I buy those wheels and the lug pattern converters with that size will these still fit on my car or will it be too aggresive for daily driving? Also is there a more effective way to convert the lug pattern? His tire size on the front is 235/35/19 and in the rear it is 235/40/19. Below is a picture of the wheel if it makes any different.

Thanks!

Or if I re-drilled them would I be better off? And keeping the +10 offset instead? I'm sure the rears won't be a problem with a fender roll is doing 19x10.5 on the front with 10+ that scares me. If anyone can chime in and let me know it would be great!!

i have M3 fitment (+20 offset) on 18x8.5 as my winters on my 335, and i dangerously rub in the front (like i hit a bumpe while turning and it pops the screws on the bumper that go into the fender)
there is no way this will work at all

Are the dimmensions on yours different because it is a convertible? Because dangerous rub sounds a little extreme. I have a friend running 19x9.5 with a 22+ offset on his and no rubbing..well only on the rear with fat bitches on the car.

Those wheel specs are not ideal for the car, with or without adapters. You can redrill them from 5x114.3 to 5x120, however even then they're still really aggressive.

I don't mind aggresive for driving around town. For trips I'd switch to stocks..but will the 19x10.5 fit the fronts? I have confidence it will fit the back. Isn't someone here running a 19x10.5 or 11 square setup?

With enough work they may fit up front (inner clearance should be okay), but they stick out 50mm further than what we recommend. We've had customers in the past run wheels like 19x9.5 ET33 up front but nothing quite as aggressive as 19x10.5 ET10.

What do you mean when you say work? I'm lowered on coilovers so I guess I can go ahead and lift the car to make sure fenders don't rub as well as pull and roll them some. And I would probably use them as summer wheels only or show I guess my biggest fear is re drilling them and then not working out specially when turning and whatnot

you're going to smash up your front fenders with those specs. dont forget that our e92's have plastic front fenders so you cant roll/pull anything.

and those are cheap wheels. i wouldn't bother trying to make those wheels fit in the first place, even if someone gave them to me for free. not worth the results in my opinion.

no one here runs a 10.5 +10 fronts, let alone hardly anyone runs a 10.5+10 rears. your front will poke 34mm from flush with | -.65 camber as your rears will poke 21mm at \ -2.0. your stretch and camber will not match ruining any look youre going for. For the hassle of redrill or adapters to make them even work youll need a 235.35 front with camber plates. Try another wheel, those look kinda nasty.

Hey man, Tryed to PM you but your box is full...

You seem very knowledgeable on wheel and tire fitment! I was hoping you could lend me some advice and tips?

Iím looking for a new wheel set up but I am trying to stick with the same tires I currently have as they have maybe 2K miles on them and are in perfect condition.

I have 19" PSS tires; 235 in front and 275 in rear.

Question: I want to go as aggressive as possible in the front and rear without rubbing and without spacers. What is the lowest ET I can run both front and rear while staying in a "safe zone"?

Eric.
Youre trying to salvage your existing tires in hopes to achieve aggressive fit without rub? thats asking for the impossible. im running 235.35 and 275.30 rears now and they rub like crazy.

everyone has their own perspective with whats aggressive and whats not and whatevers borderline.
Your typical flush setup is a 9/10 +25/25 and running a 275.30 is impossible esp on PSS, unless you raised the rear. If youre against stretch then youre going to rub with a true aggressive wheel setup.

Your best bet would be to sell those tires and make way for something new and cool or else they would hold you back on landing a aggressive set of wheels. My best advice to you or anyone would be to find a photo of a look that inspires you, find out how much camber youre willing to run, your budget and the intended application and ill spec out a set that meets the criteria.
