335i puts on her new shoes!!

The tough thing in life is buying a new car and realizing how badly the stock wheels just had to go.

So called up guys at 5zigen to check out there SC3000's nice wheels and great price. $1000 shipped for the set.


Wheels are 19x8.5 front with 35mm offset and 19x9.5 rear with a 35mm offset.

Fitment is good.

Next thing is need some solid suspension to make the rear of the car stiffer.

Looks great! Is your car lowered? Is it a sport?

I am curious if you are getting any rubbing. More pictures please!!

Thanks

all E92's have sport suspension, so that won't affect the ride height.
Doesn't appear to be lowered.

Not sure about the black rims... though with some additional mods it may look great. Just a bit aggressive for an otherwise stock ride.

Looks great! Did you install pressure sensors in your new wheels? If not, are you getting any error messages from the car?

Yeah I thought the same, looks very aggresive for a 35 offset.

all 2007's in the U.S. do.

The '07s outside the U.S. have the same system from 2006.

Thanks guys, no rubbing.

Tires are 235/35/19 and 255/30/19 rear. The tire sensors just need to be pulled out of the stock wheels, once installed in the new wheels I haven't had any problems.

Car seems to handle better with a bit more rubber on the road. Can't wait for some coilovers.

Are the rear wheels/tires protruding from the body at all or are they just really really flush? Hard to tell from this angle.

so the sensor is attached to the oem rim. If I was just to replace my tire, I don't need to mess with the sensor? pls confirm. Nice ride.

Not true, 07 335i Sedan is exactly like the 06 models.
Only the coupe has separate senors for each wheel.
