The 189's look way better in my opinion. Keep the 189's on!

Get fat rubber asap, and spacers and you'll be fine

I have a M-Sport e90 sedan with the sport suspension and 17inch m-sport wheels - I absolutely love the wheels so I kept them and decided to do spacers instead of purchasing different wheels. My spacers are 15mm in the rear and 12mm in the front; I have no drop in my car, only the sport suspension like I said and it still rubs occasionally - mostly at higher speeds garbage roads or at low speeds sink holes. However, I take the same routes everywhere
I go so I've learned where giant humps in the road are. I don't regret the spacers I love them and think they give my car more of an aggressive look. However, with 18 inch wheels spacers lowering it = not even possible with those size spacers, it wouldn't even be possible with the size spacers I have.

Unless you downgraded, the wheels should be 18s and there should be absolutely no rubbing whatsoever unless you're carrying around bricks or 4-5 dead bodies in the boot.

OP if you're short of cash, settle for either a drop or wheels; don't compromise on one or the other, you'll regret using sub-par parts. If I was in your position, I'd buy suspension upgrades and get rid of those wheels, stock looks better. You'll not need spacers unless you get suspnesion, I think 10f 20r is what most do, I agree with Kriszstan; 15-25 is a too much with not that aggressive of a drop.

Take off the silly trunk spoiler and leave the OEM wheels on there and you've have a clean BMW!

Lol I'm rockin those wheels now on my E90 but in 19's. But for some reason it doesn't look right on your E92. They look small. I think it'll look better if you went up one... The wheels looks good though.

OEM. I'd wait and save up more to get the correct size and offset instead.
