Miro Type 279

Has anyone put 18x8.0, 18x9.0 Miro Type 279 for BMW 5x120 35/38 front/rear offset on E92? Would the front/rear wheel look tucked in compared to stock 189s?What size rear tires would you recommend with this setup?

I saw them on **********s site and they are very lightweight i.e 22 lbs. I am interested in them.

Interested in finding out what members think.

You can actually run the standard BMW fitment of 225-40-18 (front), 255-35-18 (rear) for those wheels. The offsets are pretty close to the Style 189 wheels, so it would "look" similar to the stance of the 189s.

Using the wheel calculator on the site, the front wheel will be tucked in by 1mm and the rear wheel will be pushed out by 5mm. I think it might work well because the rear 189 wheels look tucked in
