New Wheels

I just purchased a new set of wheels off a fellow e90post member.

The specs are:

Axis Pentas
19X8.5 +35 offset tires 245/35/19
19X9.5 +40 offset tires 275/30/19

My next upgrade will be coils. Currently, I'm on stock suspension. Please let me know what you guys think?

Also, should I sell my OEM style 185 wheels? or should I keep it as backup?

I've done the same, just bought 19" wheels which look fantastic, but ridiculous on stock suspension haha. What coils are you looking at? Will look so much better lowered, those wheels are lovely

I got these for an awesome deal. Rims + Tires (50 - 60% thread) + TPMS for $400. I was afraid that the tires would touch the shock. It's literally about 1 finger apart since these tires are larger than the recommended. I'm probably going to get new tires once these are worn out.

As for suspension, I'm thinking of either ST or KW V1 coilovers at the moment.

Thats a bargain at $400!! You did well there

I've heard good things about the KW v1 coilovers, seem to come well recommended.

I've been told to get wheels before coils so you can know how much to lower.

looks good and like how others have suggested already: need a drop!

since you're in socal, i think you may be better off selling your OEM wheels. i've got mine as dedicated snow shoes.
