Rims definitely stick out at the rear. A higher offset would have brought them in a little where you could lower safely without rubbing with the 275s. 265s would look really funny with that amount of stretch. Were these rims made custom for the 92? Wheels are sexy.

they are 275's correct.

a 265 would solve or help bandaid the problem somewhat...but then you've got the 265 stretched a tad too far for a 10in. wheel. which doesn't look appealing imo.

Yeah I am bringing down the offset from +25 to +30 and that should solve the rubbing issue. These rims and tires are E46 M3 spec.

Gonna send it off to a wheel shop and they will do that for around 150 CAD for 2 wheels. Hm.. I am going to put the 18"x8 BBS LM with winter tires on for now and maybe either roll the fenders or shave the hub after winter

I love the wheels, and of course love the car ...but I'm not completely sold on 19's yet, I think 18's look great on E92's, anyone else?

That's the only offset BBS offer for 19x10 wheels. I know 19x9.5 will fit better but I want to have bigger lip for the wheel

Hm... I brought my car to the dealer to check the alignment (my car is under 500km) and they said it is like this . . nothing wrong.

now the 19" are off from my car becoz of the cold weather.. 18" LM are on my car now and they are 18x8 (et 35) with 235 all around. I gonna post some pics soon

Those look too small for the car, especially on the rear.

The offset on the 19x9.5 is 40mm.

I agree 18x8 on a 335 e92 looks way small but there is an advantage, the thiner smaller wheel is lighter and will spin faster although I would guess traction is now an issue.
