Help with wheels and mods for first E92

Im sure there is a thread for people looking for wheels and mods to do first. If not I thought it might be cool to have a bunch of pics of wheels to look at. Also any ideas for mods that are inexpensive, easy or must-do first. If you have the price or know the site that would be great or a pic and make/model.
I have been looking for the right car now for a while. Finally found an 08 335xi coupe. Black and coral red. Thank god... finally!!
Need some help finding wheels. There are alot to chose from and i know many have gone through the search so if anybody could help I would really appreciate it. I was thinking 19s but what does everyone think about 20s? If there is a thread let me know where.

I would say you should probably run a 19" setup and a mild lowering based on you living in NH. If you need some ideas your welcome to browse our site or you can contact us directly using the info in the sig below.

I like the idea of a 19" setup like this one below using a 19x10.5 with a 285/30/19, sweet:

That sits perfect. I would be happy with that. I didn't know you could go that wide with the rears. I would like to be able to adjust the suspension in case I drive in the winter. I was thinking about the pss10's or something like that. Are those easily adjustable? Do you need to jack or a lift or can you do it easily in your driveway?

You need a jack, and you need to take off the wheel to adjust the height. Yes, you can easily do it on your driveway!

As for wide rears for XI, I don't know about that... I guess search/ask a person who has an XI.

If you're looking for wheels with a lip, definitely look into HRE, DPE, BBS, iForged etc
