wheel setup for 335i

I have a 335i coupe 09 and need some input on wheel setup and tires. What is the most aggressive stance I can achieve?

Without a fender roll and pull? With a fender roll and pull?

Best offset for stance is a et25 rear with a 255 series tire for a 10 inch. Fronts should be around the same but with a 235/225 series tire with about a 9 inch wheel. So basically...

F: et25 19x9 225/35-19
R: et25 19x10 255/30-19

There are many variations from above but that is a good starting point.

A 255 series tire on a 10 inch wide rim is going to look rediculous, and not in a good way. That tire is way too small for that size rim, in my opinion. It is going to be stretched on so bad it will look like it is trying to pop off. You're better off with a 275 (at a minium) on a 10 inch wide rim. Same goes for the 225 on a 9 inch rim. Going to look terrible.

Is bigger than 10 possible for the rear? And I was thinking 8.5 for the width in front..unless 9 looks better.

There is a wide range of possibilities with a fender roll and pull. It all depends on how much elbow grease you are willing to do.

9.5 +33 front with a 235 and a 10 +25 rear with a 265 gives off a nice aggressive stance on a Non-M.

He asked for an "aggressive" setup. I do not recommend aggressive setups but that is the most aggressive setup i can think of that will fit. I run 275 on a 10 inch tire et30 which is extremely aggressive for that offset.

I guess I just don't think of a stretched tire look as being aggressive. A wide rim with a skinny tire kind of defeats the purpose.

As I stated before, I completely agree.

I would probably have to see how it looks before i decide, but you guys think putting 9+ in front would look more aggressive?
