Something Different - Oem 166 On E92

Sup Fellas, havent posted in a while. been lurking on the F10 forums more since i got my 11 535 M-Sport. I was going to sell my E92 but couldnt bring myself to it. I love the car too much. So im the happy owner of the E92 and F10 now.

Anywho - I had the OEM 166's from my past E60. I tried them on the E92 for sh!ts and giggles. But damn they look good. I think im going to keep them on the car and no im not going to lower the car, i drive it in the winter here in Canada so dont tell me to slam it i did already in the past iteration of the car (as seen in my sig)

Rears are 19 x 95 Et 27 on 275/30/19 Falken 452's
Fronts are 19 x 8.5 (gotta double check the offset) 245/35/19 Falken 452's. I will be swapping the front tires out to a set of 235's as it sticks out just a tad too much for my liking.

Anyways this is a great setup for an E90 thats slammed or E92 with narrower tires. Concavity are pretty crazy for the E92. Comparing to my Old VMR VB3 19 x 10 super concavces. These wheels have a bit more concavity to give you an idea of how they look in real life.

For those with E90's. The Stock M5 setup will definately work. You guys have wider front fenders. So if you lower your cars, the 245 width tires upfront shouldnt be an issue.

Nice thing about these, are the wheels are concaved both front and rear!
Plus you cant beat OEM BBS Quality. I would grab a used set of these over any replica CSL wheel any day.

holy moly, those do look awesome. and I agree about the non-drop. Wonder how they'd look on an LCI e90?

This looks great!!! Smaller tires and a drop would really bring these out.

Fellas, I dont want to mis-inform anyone. If you are lowered, you must run narrower tires or negative camber in the front. I have 245 wide tires on the front of these and they do stick out about 10-15 mm past the fender. Im going to be dropping down to a 235 wide tire to see how they look.

I would love to see an E90 lowered with this setup though, would look sexy. The rears are pretty flush with a 275 wide rear.
