I have some 360 forged SL10's being made now. I'll get them up when done. There 20x8F/20x10R.

I noticed that not many people run 20's on there 335's. Any particular reason?

+1000 Seeing all the lowered and H&R/Eibach Pro kits on here made me want to lower mine, but suspension gets EXPENSIVE. I think I'd rather invest in the wheels, and maybe suspension later on, if wanted. Can't be looking too ricey in a Bee Em

Is that SGM? Those Advans look beautiful on it. Nice to see good looking wheels on that color, what about some blacklines? I saw some G10 Volks that looked Advan RZ lookalikes, but the color seemed like it would work And you aren't lowered?

Yeah, 19's at MOST for an E90, even without a drop. Especially if she's your DD.

Here's some semi-updated ones of my 330. I've added OEM blacklines since these were taking.

My 2010 E92 328i X-drive with staggered 19" CSL Reps.

Front 19 x 8.0 ET40 with 235/35R19 Conti DWS
Rear 19 x 9.5 ET40 with 265/30R19 Conti DWS

My friend has an E46 M3 with 19" VMR CSL reps. We parked out cars side by side to compare the wheel gap. My car was just as low (if not lower) in the rear. In the front I was at least 3/4-1" higher than him. Not bad for an X-drive on stock suspension.

I am quite happy with the ride, handling and look. The Conti's are an unbeatable tire for the money. I have no plans to drop, just some more cosmetic mods.
