335D Alloys Advice

Hi,

I currently have MV3's on my 2006 335D and wanted to upgrade to some 19" CSL Reps.

I am not good with tyres so need some advice. I have seen some CSL Reps @ CMWheels:

The specs are

19x8.5 et37
19x9.5 et27

What sort of tyres will I need? I want it to fill the arches and give a aggressive look really?

Will I need spacers?

Thanks for reading,
GEE

Garage List
Is the car a coupe,saloon or tourer?

Best size tyres are:

235/35/19 front.
265/30/19 rear.

ET27 on the back of a coupe is a tad too aggressive, the chances are the tyres will rub,so if it is a E92,stick with 255/30/19,its a better bet.

Saloon or tourer, the sizes above (235/265) are good to go.

I have recently fitted those wheels plus the tyre sizes suggested by Hotcoupe.

The offset is a little different to your standard wheels, which has the effect of pushing the wheels out a little further than standard but I doubt you'll notice any difference visually.

Spacers not required unless you want a wider appearance. Speak to Chris at CMWheels for advice.

I went for Goodyear Asymmetric 2s, better IMO than Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (less wheelspin certainly.)
