Looks good nonetheless.
I checked their measurement on their site with other manufacturers and dealers. Not the most exact way buy the tread width is greater than a lot of others as far as my front and rear size . Section width is mostly normal or varies slightly at times. They have a very found sidewall though which helps

Looks great! I installed Apex ARC-8 wheels too - slightly smaller 18"/8.5" front 18/0.5 rear with 235/265 tires (Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 non-run flat). The wheels are noticeably lighter than the stock wheels. Save about 4-5 pounds per wheel which seriously reduces unsprung weight. Result = faster and nimbler, especially with my KWV1s. My picture needs updating though.

Interested to see what you got goin on. I think 305s are possible on a relatively low dropped non m e90 with the right offset. Like 10.5 in the mid 30s

modmy3. best deal out there on this board, period. these guys are real nice and dont fuck around on pricing.

i picked it up in person, got it painted, and put it on with a buddy after drinking some beer, it fits perfect and required no skill to throw on

Rim option

Hey dude,
Your car looks sick with those rims, I have the same but opted for the concave on just the rear. Think mine is 8.5j in front (225) and the 9.5j at the rear (255)

Very nice I love these wheels! I wanna do the 9.5" fronts and 10" rears on my e92 but I'm not sure about the fronts... I'm on stock sport suspension with lowering perches

Id say keep a set of 5mm spacers on hand just to be safe. Dont want the wheel hitting the strut
