E92 335i - Forgestar CF5v Fitment Options

Hello all,

I am replacing my LC818s with a new set of wheels and have been looking at the Forgestar CF5v. I would like a fairly aggressive fitment to ensure some concavity on the fronts, but I am not sure what sizing to do as I had a safe setup with my old wheels.

My LC818s are 19x8.5 et30 front, and 19x10 et37 rear. I don't think the Forgestars will have the look I want with that size and offset. (flat front instead of concave). I have done a bit of research, and I think 19x9.5 et30 Front and 19x10 et30 rear should work with my current tires (I am currently on 235/35-19 and 265/30-19 Nitto Invos, and no drop yet).

I know the F14s have SDC and DC options, but I haven't seen them available for the CF5v. Are there variants of this wheel? If it comes down to it, I would rather have no rubbing vs overly aggressive, but would like to step up the fitment game a bit. What would you recommend?

Thanks a bunch!

-P

Also if anyone knows a preferred vendor for Forgestar, that would be appreciated too.

your fronts should be good...I would suggest 10.5(+30) for the rear. That way the front and rear would extend pass the fender 1mm and the tire stretch would be almost the same.

Thanks for the reply! I'm stock suspension now, but would want to make sure these clear H&R Sport Cup kit in the future.

Your recommendation sounds like it would match better than my original.

19x9.5+30 with 235/35-19 Nitto Invos
19x10.5+30 with 265/35-19 Nitto Invos

Stock camber would be okay with no rubbing (with a fender roll done in the rear)? Any idea on clearances from the struts?

That would be flush at stock camber. If you get camber plates you can add a little bit of camber up front and use a lower offset. Stock there isn't much camber up front.

Good to note. Also, apparently Forgestar does not offer a 10.5" wide wheel. Only 10" and 11". What offset in the rear would be required to match the fit of a `10.5 +30?

Cheers,

I just purchased these for my E90. 19x8.5 front and 19x10 setup in the rear.
235/35/19 for front and 265/33/19 rears with about a 1 inch drop all around.

No rubbing whatsoever !!!!

10(+25)
11(+35) this one would actually be 2mm pass the fender.. Sorry but I don't like odd numbers (ie +37 haha)

With 10et25 up front I would actually go with 11et33 in the rear. You would need camber plates up front.
