Help for wheel selection problem

Hi friends of the forum

My name is Paulo Martins and im from Portugal

I have a BMW 2007 335d E92 M-Kit and i have the 19" 225 OEM wheels. I also have KW Clubsport coils.

I want tho change my wheels to WSP W675 Basel M Matt Gun Metal also in 19".

Tha available sizes are :


FRONT

Size - 8,5x19 PCD: 5x120 ET:29 CB:72,6
Size - 8,5x19 PCD: 5x120 ET:34 CB:72,6

REAR

Size - 9,5x19 PCD: 5x120 ET:23 CB:72,6
Size - 9,5x19 PCD: 5x120 ET:37 CB:72,6

No doubt the OEM fit is the one with smaller ET but we all know that the ones that have a bigger ET look nicer.

So my question is, if i buy the wheels with bigger ET (in bold) will they fit my car or not. I have friends that say yes and other say no. So now i really need the opinnion of more experienced drivers.


Again thanks for the help guys

First off the ones with smaller ET numbers are the ones that sticks out more. The smaller the ET is the further it will stick out.

Both of those setups fits, but i would go with

19x8.5 et29 front
19x9.5 et23 rear, this might need fender roll. Depending of your tyre size and ride height, but will look much better than et37.

Thanks for the reply

I think the deeper the concavity the better it looks no? If not these wheels look too similar with the CSL ones dont you think??

Yes it's looks better with more concave, but to get them concave ,wheels need to be wide and/or low offset. Doesn't almost every wheel with that spoke design look like Csl , but if you like it what does it matter.

Here is the same wheel ,but it's called style 359 replica and sizes are 19x9 and 19x10.I would probably look in to find them in those sizes so you get more concave.

Ehehe and you're right!

Can you try and post pictures of the wheels I want to buy but with different concavity? Because even if one looks better than the other if it's just impossible to fit them in my car the choice will be obvious....

The thing is there probably isn't any difference at concavity between same width and different offsets.They probably just add more stuff on the back of the wheel with lower offset.This depends at the manufacturer.Cheaper wheels are almost always made that way.

I only find these two.

19x8.5 et29 235/35/19 front and 19x9.5 et23 265/30/19 rear with fender roll.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=290
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=293

Other one 19x8.5 et29 and 19x9.5 et23 No idea of tyre size, maybe same as above or 225/35/19 front 255/30/19 rear.Narrower tyre helps wheels to fit easier.

If you are going to choose between those two at your original post go with the lower offsets.

You can easily use your 225/35/19 and 255/30/19 tyres with those wheels.Tyre is just little bit if any stretched. I have 235 on 9.5.

This guy says he only rubs at bigger bumps after fender roll and he has et20 rear.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=363

As for the fender roll it would be only needed at back and you can't see it from the surface if it done properly.Infact you can't roll front fenders, because those are plastic.
If you don't want to roll fenders you can also add more negative camber to rear, or choose the 9.5 et37 for the rear. If later you want more aggressive fitment buy spacers.

Or go aggressive and do this 9.5 et23 allround.

I can tell you without pictures that you can order the smaller offset wheels to rear .However i can't say for sure whether it will rub or not.
You just have to test it.You can also try measure it like this



Your new set would stick out 22mm more compared to old one ,and you get little bit more clearance, because "stretched" tyre 255 on 9.5
Are you going to use those same tyres as the one in pictures? To me those look like bald and you could buy new tyres to new wheels.

Hi again buddy ; )

So of these two measures :

Size - 9,5x19 PCD: 5x120 ET:23 CB:72,6
Size - 9,5x19 PCD: 5x120 ET:37 CB:72,6

The one with ET37 will be the perfect fit and the one with ET 23 will look better but maybe will rub on the fedder right?

Thanks friend, I really do!

Yes that's correct. I would buy the lower ET wheels and make them work without rubbing if that would be problem.
