AG M355 Fitment on e90 Pre-LCI

Hey guys,

I'm interested in getting a set of AG M355. Just wanted to get some input on sizes and fitment.

Background: Car is a Pre-LCI e90, lowered on v1 with no gaps in wheel well, fenders NOT rolled. Current setup is 18x8.5 ET35 with a 15 mm spacer. No rub whatsoever, it looks ok with potentially a small room for improvement in terms of flushness.

Based on my research here, it seems like the 19x9 ET35 and 19x10 ET38 will for sure fit with no issues (correct me if I am wrong). I also heard that there is a 19x10 ET25 available. I was wondering, without rolling fender, is there any chance that this size would fit?

Also, I wanted to seek an opinion for those who has the ET38 setup...how does it look at the rear in terms of fitment? Flush and perfect?

The recommended spec for your car is
- 19"x9.0" ET35mm Front 235/35/19
- 19"x10.0" ET38mm Rear 265/30/19

you will need to roll fenders for et25 rear, especially for the height of your car.

I just realized that the track widths between Pre-LCI and LCI are different. Can someone confirm with me again whether a 19x10 +25 on the rear of a lowered PRE-LCI will work or not without any fender work?

Many thanks!

Hey there,

I just happened to see your post, and since i have the same wheels i can definitely answer your questions

I have the rear +25 offset, and it WILL work on pre-LCI without any fender rolling/work ONLY if you are willing to run a 245/35/19 tire, NOT the usual 265/30/19. If you run the 265, you will have to roll your fenders

However, you may want to look at my latest post today

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=841945

I put 10mm spacers on the rear, making the rear offset +15, and it rubs a little bit with the 245, even with my fenders rolled, but it's nothing to worry about as it's only rubbing the fuzzy liner. No damage to the tire or rim and i can drive 70+ mph on the freeway and hit dips. Also, i added 10mm spacers to the fronts and it looks way better, and I'm even contemplating getting the fronts with the +18 offset instead and running a 225 tire, which should fit perfect.

hope this helps you out

btw, DON'T do the +38, in my opinion, it looks too sucked in and you will regret it and wish you went with the more aggressive offset... even with a +25 it wasn't aggressive looking enough for me, that's why i added the 10mm lol, but that's not everyone's cup of tea =)
