which vendors do you guys recommend buying from? I've been checking the wheels and tires forums and I see specials but get quoted the same price as the websites or any other place.

Mod Bargains has a gallery of the F14 rims. There's a SG E92 on there with the brushed titanium finish and it looks awesome!

Just realized rims are tires would be $2700. I feel like there's a nice deep concave wheel that I can get a little cheaper then those f14

Depending on what you are looking for.

Forgestar uses Rotary Forge method, which is a lighter and stronger wheel.

For under 2k you can get gravity cast or maybe low pressure cast with descent tires.

That's why you source the wheels from one place, source TPMS from another, then source your tires locally. That's my plan for my set.

For the people that went 18" on it, what tire specs did you go with?
I'm looking at 18x8.5 with 235/40/18 and 18x9.5 with 265/35/18 and would love some advise on what the stretch looks like. Also, any opinions on Conti ExtremeContact DW vs Hankook V12. Probably going V12 due to price but open to suggestions.

Would love to go 19" but I want to buy this week and the tire rack has a great deal on Axis Rev's which would look great on Jet Black IMO
The rims but go to the 18"

I love this color and you don't see any out there on the road. What makes it more difficult is that you can't search google and see wheels on this color to see what any wheel would look like.

I finally settled on some style 95. Now the question is can I run a 245/35 on the front and be ok on a sport suspension. No one has a clear answer so I will run 233/35. Idk if without spacers they will be ok or not. I hope they are and I can use my stock oem lugs to mount these 95.

I will be picking them up this coming week and they will be paired to v12 in size 235/35 and 275/30. Had the rears rolled already because I knew I'd get big wheels.

Does anyone know if ill be ok without spacers? They are 19x9 and 19x10 24 offset all around and if my stock lugs will work. I want new lugs but where is the best place to get them.

Glad to hear you settled on a set! Can't wait to see some happy snaps!

Meanwhile, I just changed mine up a little. Forgestar now offer red centre caps, so thought i'd give em a go.

TBH I'm leaning towards the carbon fibre ones..

Nice! What finish is that? Do they make CF BMW caps? I got some CF ones off ebay thinking they'd fit, but they were OEM fitment and I ended up breaking one of the tabs so I can't resell them or return them...time to make them into nice magnets.
