just another offset questions....n00b ;;

I am in shopping of a set of rims, and trying to find out that best look and performance out of my e90 sedan.

19 x 8.5 et35 and 19 x 10 et25 will work on sedan?

I know rear will, but the front, I think I am kinda pushing into the edge.
But, again, I am more into look than performance...

I can live with a little rub issue than ugly offset'ed wheels.

please give ma some ideas. thanks

I did . (M3 offset looks the best, but according to Diesel, this will be my daily car, so I would go with a little conservative setup).

Thanks

-John

This O.Z. Ultraleggera HLT 20X10 is the widest combo and only 10" wide wheel I found on the Tire Rack website specificly for your E92.

You actually have it backwards. The 19x8.5 et35 front you are fine with that fitment. Its neither too aggressive nor too conservative, its where it should be in my opinion (im running the same front setup). However, the rear is where you will be pushing it. If you can live with some rubbing, than the 19x10 et25 will be just for you, because more than likely there will be rubbing.

I think 19X10 et25 will work with the right stretched tire (265/30/19 Toyo or Falken) & slight fender rolling. The 5mm difference between these wheels & the M3 offset BBS CH's (19x10et20) might be the difference between rubbing and not rubbing IMO.
