They are 19x9 ET 35 with a 235 tire in the front
and 19x10 ET 38 with a 265 tire in rear.

Thanks again for your order/support on the Avant Garde M359 wheels. It was my pleasure helping you out and I know that you'll enjoy the new setup. Make sure to update the thread with some installed pics once you decide on the tires!

For those of you who like this wheel, the setup that is going to work best is the 19x9.0 ET35 with a 235/35/19 up front and the 19x10 ET38 with a 265/30/19 in the rear. The wheels are available in either Hyper Silver or Matte Black as pictured above!

I installed mine yesterday, but my camera (iPhone) sucks. I think the rears could use a spacer--I'll have to look into that. I like the wheels, though!

Here's a quick-n-dirty pic. I like the way they turned out with the SG.

The Avant Garde M359 wheels look great installed on the car. You can try to put a 5mm spacer on the back if you want a more aggressive stance. Take a couple more shots so that we can see it from a few different angles!!

When you got your wheels balanced, did some require absurd amount of weights?

One of them required more than typical, though not 'absurd' (maybe eight or so weights in a line) The other three were normal in my experience with aftermarket wheels (three to five weights).

Edit: Not the best angle for the car, but gives an overall idea of color scheme:

Ah okay, seems pretty similar in my case as well. Was hoping it was the tire shop that's doing a bad job at balancing.

Thank you for the kind words. Yep, they are DWS. Surprisingly, I like them a lot--and not just compared to the PS RFT they supplanted. The DWS are super quiet, handle well, and word has it for a non-winter-specific tire, they are great in inclement weather, to boot. Plus, they're relatively cheap, which makes for a win-win-win in my book!

Great to hear you like them, I was having a hard time choosing which tire to go with since i've been running the stock RFT's...I thought they handled "OK" so hopefully I'm in for a surprise with the DWS, Ordered them today can't wait to feel a non rft setup

I'm still considering these for my E93 even though I'm leery of the stretched look in the rear. Yours look good, tho!

I have a set of Conti ExtremeContact DW waiting for rims...235/35/19 fronts and 265/30/19 rears. I see that's the sizes you used in the DWSs. How's the stretch in the front and rear? Do you know if the DWS has as square of a sidewall as the DW? It looks like it in the pics on Tirerack.

Thanks!

Looking good. I like the rear end mods as well. It's hard to find a spoiler that is just the right size and the bumper looks killer too.
