New Wheels and Tyres Added

Finally got round to changing my wheels and tyres.

The 18inch MV3's where pretty badly kerbed all round when I got this car last year, I wanted to get of the run flats and the rears where in desperate need of changing, I also wanted to up them to 19 inch.

Its taken me a while to get around to getting some new ones, I was surprised how long it took to choose too.

Anyway I went for Dotz Exiles, 19 inch Staggered set up.

265/30 rears
225/35 fronts


I like them, maybe not everyones taste I know, but I think they are subtle.

Drive wise it feels and sounds a lot smoother, although handling not sure yet as its such a big change I need to get used to it first.













Have ordered some Black Carbon BMW Centre Caps too.

nice!!1....i like them...

your rear tyres are 265?... and front 225?...

would 235 for the fronts be much better to "match" the 265?...

i believe standard size is 225 and 255....

Yes not sure why they put 225's on, if I am honest the fronts look a little stretched, 235's would be a better choice, and one I will be looking at in the New Year.

They look good.

I think the fronts are very stretched. What wheel size are they. 8.5j/9.5j ? If so at least a 235 on the front & possibly a 245. I think Alpinas come with 245/265 staggered setup.

Excatly the same wheels I bought couple of weeks ago for my E90
I am putting some 235/260 tyres next monday and will post some photos
These wheels look great and the price for them is just fantastic !!! Around 600 pounds.
Front = ET35
Rear = ET32

ET on these wheels is not bad, but there is very small concave If the concave was big, the manufacturing process would require more money and these wheels would cost aroun 1000 pounds then ... Nothing is for free lol

Overall I love the look of these wheels !!! Amazing
