My winter setup - M5 reps

Hey Guys/Gals

This is my winter setup, M5 reps on Dunlop SP Wintersport M3. So, far so good. A little noisy but I can live with it. Other than that pretty nice looking combo for a winter

Enjoy,

225/45/17 H91 all around. I have SP so the car is a little lower. I use F36 PSI, B38 PSI. The ride is a little noisy and bumpy. Other than that it's all good. I paid $1700 plus 14% taxes here is Toronto form Tire Depot. I also got BMW stickers and M stickers for the rims.

Offset Please

Hi,

I ordered 17" wheels from fastwheels.ca that look exactly the same (As a winter setup). I read a lot here about offset and decided to go with the 40 mm offset. Now I'm all confused again... My 335i e90 is only arriving in a few weeks and I'm worried about look and rubbing. They also offer the wheels with 20mm offset but the center bore doesn't match the e90 one.

Please help!! Did I order the right offset (40 mm)? I'd prefer to know now. The wait is quite difficult and the stress of none fitting wheels is raising...

Here's what the tool here says:

Front 40mm:

6mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will RETRACT 6mm

Rear 40mm:

3mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will RETRACT 9mm

Front 20mm:

14mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 14mm

Rear 20mm:

23mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 11mm

Thanks!
JF

You're good with the +40s. It's when you get to the really wide tires that you are concerned with a few mm of offset.
