19" Advan RS, need new wheel studs?

I am considering picking up a set of Advan RS's. Sizes 19x8.5 front 19x9.5 rear with 235/35 front and 265/30 rear tires. However, the devil is in the details. Will I need new wheel studs for the newer deeper wheels (like these? http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html...UCT_ID=TWH9950 )? What about hub centric rings? Will the factory BMW caps fit, or is some sort of adapter needed? Lastly, will these tires rub at the stock ride height, what about if it were lowered? Can I go larger with the tires, maybe a 245 front and 275 rear? I have done searches and gotten mixed results on the rubbing, so I am looking for experience with these specific wheels. I have not read anything about the wheel studs, hub rings or center caps. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

My car is an 08 335xi coupe in black. I was considering getting the rims in gun metal.

I think your stock ones will be fine, you will probably need hubcentric rings though since the wheels arent BMW specific

wrong ... advan rs wheels do not require hubcentric rings.... the center bore is bmw specific as long as you order the ones made for bmw...

also the wheels will not rub but consider going 265 in the rear and not 275 for the non M cars... 275 tires in the rear MIGHT rub.

oem lug bolts are fine. you dont need special ones.

oem center caps WILL not fit without a special adapter... or you could use the advan center cap like me.

So, the stock studs work, 275s might rub in the rear and I don't need hub centric rings? That certainly makes life easier. What about the stock lug nuts? They work with the Advans or will I need to source new ones?

275 rears will not rub with the 9.5" 35 offset even with a drop.

Stock lugs.

To use the BMW center caps you have to buy the center cap rings
@ $40 each

Anyone know a good place to source the rings? Preferably states side so I can get them quickly? I have a line on a nice set of Advans for a good price but they don't have either center caps or the rings to reuse the BMW ones. Not a big deal perhaps, but I would prefer not to have to roll out my new summer shoes without caps.

forget the centre caps... they look more agressive without.

What color car do you have and what color Advan's are you getting?

These wheels look so much better in real life. The concavity and the details are fantastic. They are super light weight too.

I am getting the dark gun metal I believe (double checking to make sure the wheels were not sold out from under me while I vacillated). Given how they look on the pictures above, I think they are going to look pretty damn good.

The lightness and strength were also major reasons I picked them. The car is damn near 3800 lbs stock, so shedding some un-sprung weight off the end of the drive train should help liven up the car a little.
