nice ride! but honestly .. the pics you have in that link doesn't seem like they're on stock suspensions lol Looks pretty nice though i was thinking of getting gunmetal for my ride.. but my car is space grey.. so it might not stand out as much. lol

Everyone on this forum is telling me matte black looks the best. lol I think once I lower my car... that will give me more time to think about which wheels to get. I'm undecided between hyper silver or matte black lol

Do you have any plans to lower your car (even though your car already looks good on stock)?

I'd say start with hyper silver and if you get bored of it you can always powder coat the wheels to black. I'm planning on lowering my car on ST coilovers. Don't need to worry about salt on the roads here in NorCal

That's true.. I really like the hyper silvers for sure. Nice.. lucky you.. whereas in Canada we have to wait until spring to do our mods. lol What made you decide on the ST coils? I'm planning to get KW's.. hopefully I'll have them by next week.

Debating to get 275 in the rear or some spacers, I have a little bit of room to work with. Front sits pretty flush, any spacer would have it outside the fender.

Pulling this out from the dead, but the tire size and these wheels keep comming up all the time.

From all the searching around 245 and 275 should be a no rub option for the stock sport suspension. 235/265 is a most definite no rub option but you have to live with the stretch tire look.

245/275 setup is what i will be going with for AG M359

Wolf, is the GB still going on for the AG wheels? Are you getting 18s or 19s?

Let me know how that works, I'm not planning to drop and definitely think a 275 would fit in the rear. A 245 up front seems like no problem.

The debate is whether I want to keep the rear 265 and use a spacer, or go with the wider tire? I think the spacer would be more aggressive, getting the wheel pushed out some more.

Looks amazing for stock suspension. The wheel gap is not too much, although some would still say drop it. That is the same look I am going for.

Planning on maybe getting some Bilstein B12 Pro-Kit but as of right now, I am fine with the ride, I do however hate the gap in the front from the stock wheels.

Big gap in the front and not flush for the rear fenders.

Blindside _137 can you take a pic of your car from the back (along the side)so we can see how the wheel sits right now as to when it gets pushed out a bit more with the spacer? Can you also take one from the front so we can see the front wheel?

Here's a few, excuse the dirty wheels. Look at previous pic post for the true clean look.

From the front




Front Bird's Eye



Front to rear



Front of rear



Bird's eye rear



Rear to front



Another angle of the front



Full car





So again I'm an E93 on stock sport suspension. I feel like a 275 will definitely fit in the rear. It would just be a personal taste to either go that route or 265 plus spacer. The fronts could definitely fit a 245, and IMO don't need any spacer as the wheels seem pretty flush already.

I have no plans to drop. I think the rear is perfect, I may contemplate perches for the front but that would be later on down the road. The car is so low already I feel like (by normal standards and not the guys on the forum)

I think that it is great as is! Sure, there is a tiny bit of space left to make it completely flush but I would be happy with that. The only thing is we have the same suspension and running 275 is risky and might rub a little.

Thanks to this thread and calling around I located a shop who rolls fenders and I am able to fit a 19x10 with a 275/30/19 wheel if I don't lower the car which I don't plan on doing.
