e90 with M3 wheels

So I am deciding whether I like my e90 with gunmetal 18" M3 wheels. I tried them on for fitment the other day. What do you think?

Impressive! I am a little biased, though. I have a set of M3 wheels, too. IMO, 18-inch wheels have more sidewall than 19s for the rough and tumble nature of the roads in the Mid-Atlantic. As much as I admire 19s, I feel most comfortable with 18s in my area (NoVa, MD, DE, PA).

However, I downsized the tires from the original M3 specs for two reasons:

1- OEM M3 rear specs at 265/40/18 would rub on my sport suspension because the fenders are not as flared as a regular M3. Since you are not lowered, the original size in the rear might be fine. I also went to 235/40 so the tire diameter in the front and rear would better match each other.

2- I really downsized because the price of the lower size (235/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rear) was also much more attractive, with a savings of at least $30 per tire.

A lot of people like the M3 219M wheels on non-M e90s because they look more aggressive. But boy, are they a pain in the arse to keep clean. LOL
