Thats interesting I guess in Canada is a bit different for that, our 335s came with 18 regardless of M-sport or not.

If I went with factory msport from dealer 18s were standard. I went with regular and got 17s.

That didn't last long....

That is interesting, I'm still perplexed as to why an m-sport would come with 17" wheels. the photos of mine were taken within 1 hour of bringing mine home, so, i Guess you could say mine lasted about 8 miles or so...

Stock suspension with staggered 18s, need spacers and a drop to make it look good!

I just bought Alufelgen SF-71
Front 19 8.5 ET35
Rear 19 9.5 ET35

I'm thinking about these tires.
Front 235 35 19
Rear 265 30 19 OR 275 30 19

Any ideas what's best for the rear tires? I'm keeping the stock suspension on my E92 328xi. I did a search but couldn't find whether 265 or 275 is best.

19s on xi looks like a tractor. You have to lower it.

Agreed. Since I shared the before and after from 17's to 19's, here is later that day with some Kw V1's thrown on. Much better...

Go for some springs or coilovers. You won't regret it.

I'm sorry I stuck with a square setup I'm not an authority on tire/wheel setups.

235/35/19 & 275/30/19 is an identical match for revs per mile on TireRack.com for General GMAX AS-03.

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....el=G-MAX+AS-03

Go look up the tire specs on the brand you are shopping.

I just had 19" style 230 wheels installed last Friday on a stock sport suspension.

While I know it would look better lowered a little bit, I still think it looks pretty good.
