Style 193 m sport wheels on the 335i coupe

Upgraded my 17 inch type 188 wheels with bridgestone RFTs to 18 inch type 193 m sport wheels with Bridgestone R001s.

Ride and handling much better with this set up, although i havent really pushed the car, much less tracked it. The ride with the 18 inch conventional tires is however definitely improved compared to the 17 inch rfts. Please no comments on why Im not slammed and why I didnt go for 19s... our roads here are terrible and Im not a fan of the big wheel - super thin rubber look.

BTW the tires are slightly taller than standard... 235/40/18 front and 245/40/18 rear. I like how this fills up the wheel wells without a drop.

Very nice! I was looking into upgrading my wheels, then I read the tire and wheel insurance policy I bought. It only covers the wheels that came with the car when I bought it. So any wheels I buy would be a waste of the policy

Nope. But, since upgraded wheels are not listed on the window sticker I don't know if I could get away with it. I'll call my SA and see what he says. I just don't want to throw the $800 policy out the window.
