That tyre doesn't look like it's seated properly on the rim - are all 4 wheels the same?

BUMP for more pics and to keep this goin!

I have some wheels that I'm planning on dropping in soon on my pre-lci e90, and after reading this thread would like some ideas.

Specs of wheels:
F 19x9 et36
R 19x10 et 38
Will be lowered on Eibach Pro-kit springs with Conti ExtremeDW tires

Should I:
a)Go with (F)235/35/19 and (R)275/30/19 - no spacers
b)Go with (F)235/35/19 and (R)265/30/19 - 5mm spacers in the front and 12mm spacers in the back. This would require a fender roll.

Any opinions?

Flame suit on - I would search and search, but between feeding times for the baby and work, I'm slammed - nutty slammed busy..I was wondering if someone could just throw it out there for me.

I want to DROP my 2011 e90 LCI - and want to know what the best drop will be (brand and line up) with NO rubbing for the wheels I just purchased:

19x8.5 ET35 and 19x9.5 ET43
235/35/19 and 265/30/19

^ Vortex Tuning http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=483670

Thanks Guys and so sorry....I'll look some more tonight when the baby goes to sleep and his little brother isn't tearing down the walls of our house. LOL.

You should be fine with those offsets
22 is too aggressive

Hey guys does anyone have pics of the style 189 18" wheel on an E90 thats been dropped on H&R sports? Also for those of you who have had springs put on, how much did you guys pay? When I used to have my Dinan 3 E46, I got quotes of close to a $1000 to install just springs?!?! I hope that's not true...

Install cost

I'm a lot depends were you are located. I just had a H&R Cup Kit install. Springs, struts, shocks for $525 in Michigan, metro Detroit area. I thought that was fair. I would think spring install would be same since labor is pretty identical. Good luck

Possibly someone here can help me. A friend of mine is selling a set of avant garde 310s for very cheap. But they are off an e46 M3. I have a e90 335i. THe front wheels seem to be the exact size I need, 19x8.5 et35. But the rears may be a bit aggressive. They are 19x9.5 et22. Ive been asking around the forum if these rear wheels will fit my car. Some people say yes, and some say no. I know the recommended tire size is 265/30/19 for these wheels. But if I was to use 255/30/19 or 245/30/19 would that allow these rears to fit my car without rubbing issues? I am also lowered on KW V1 coilovers. Ive called a few places in my area for fender rolling and it doesnt seem anyone is willing to roll my fenders. Plus I hear the paint can easily be cracked. So Im trying to see if someone can give me a concrete yes or no answer to let me know if these rears will work on my car. Any help would be appreciated.

I've used to have 19x9.5 ET32 265/30/19, but I once tried 10mm spacers on, making it ET22.
Here's a link to some pics, I've say it would work with a fender roll.
