Recommendations for 2007 E92?

Hello guys,

I have a Space Grey, 2007 335i E92 with sports package and next month I will be upgrading my tires/wheels but was wondering which combo to get.

Here is my wish list:

1. 19" wheels
2. Preferibly hyper black or silver in color
3. Wider than stock wheels with rear being wider than front
4. Deep concave
5. run flat tires

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...

1) unless you HAVE to I would say no to run flat tires they are hard and they have a tendency not to ride as smooth
2) what style do you prefer? (mesh, 5 spoke, 6 spoke, full face, etc)
3) budget??

I heard that if I changed from run flats to regular tires and because I have the sports package, I would need to also change my suspension. Basically read that the OEM sports package is tuned for run flats. Is this true?

As for style, I like styles such as the AG M359s and the pics posted by VMRWheels. What I surely want are concave rims. The more concave, the better.

Budget? Around $2,000 for wheels+tires.

AG M359 matte black works really well with Space Grey!

No idea of the price tho.Also don't buy narrow front wheel. Get at least 9 inch wide to front.Otherwise you wont have much of concave.
