20" wheels question...

I have a 335i Vert and I'm going to drop it using H&R's. Curious if this is okay to run.

R: 20x10" 20 Offset
F: 20x8.5" 38 Offset

If this setup is okay to run, what tire sizes would you suggest. Keep in mind I will be lowering the car.

The front will be fine. You are going to have roll your rear fenders, especially if you are planning on lowering your vehicle. There is no tire that you can use that will avoid rubbing issues without rolling the fenders. You should use at least a 275 on your rear wheel, I believe most guys are using a 285.

Gorgeous car bro, if you don't mind me asking, what tire sizes are you running? Are you rubbing at all?

What wheel are you looking to purchase? Is it a multi-piece wheel? If so, they should already have a designated wheel fitment for your vehicle (as per many multi-piece wheel companies do not disclose their offsets, but they assure you of proper fitment). If you are ordering a cast wheel, you should find out if they have another offset available because that offset is meant for the E46 M3. On your rear wheel, a more ideal offset would be 35 to 37. Member "lifo" is using a 20x10 ET37 on his coupe with a 285 tire and is lowered and is barely having any rubbing issues.

just buying a cheap set of 20's right now. They're not forged multi-piece, thats why I'm trying to figure out what sizes I should run without rubbing on Race Springs. I'll look into the sizes for an M3. Thanks!

I think you misunderstood. You should not be looking for a wheel with an E46 M3 fitment. The E46 M3 rear offset will not work on the E9x chassis properly, especially a E9x dropped on H&R race springs. You will have severe rubbing issues because the E46 M3 requires a lower offset than the E9x chassis.

fronts: 245/30/30... rears: 275/30/20 - I know wrong size. but I reused my Toyo's off my Lexus GS350, because Toyo was on a back order for the 285/25/20...

That is because there are very few on the market that have the staggered fitment with the proper offset in a 20 inch for the E9x chassis. One that is available is Beyern Wheels www.BeyernWheels.com. The have 20's availabe in staggered fitment for the E9x chassis, although the ET30 is a little aggressive still on a vert, but its a hell of a lot better than ET20! I'd call them tomorrow and talk to one of their sales reps about fitment on your car or you can call Discount Tire about them as well because they sell them.

40 offset is fine (im assuming its still the same 20x8.5 front and 20x10 rear?).

If this setup is okay to run, what tire sizes would you suggest. Keep in mind I will be lowering the car.
As said before ET 20 and 20x10" for a lowered e92 is no good. ET should be 35-40.
