M3 GTS wheels on a e90 pre-Lci

Hello everyone!

I bought some avantgarde m359 wheels.

FRONT 19x9.0Ē ET31
REAR 19x10Ē ET25

Currently running

FRONT 225/35/19
REAR 255/30/19

They are too tiny for this wheel spec. I already roll fended my rear fender for future modifications, I would like to know it if it possible to use m3 gts oem sizes on my car.

FRONT 255/35/19
REAR 285/30/19


My car is a 2006, BMW 325D e90 (pre-Lci)

Anyone have pics of this exactly setup of wheels/tyre sizes?
Thank you!

I think your eyes are deceiving you, I have the same set of wheels and installed the wheels before I installed my coilovers and I immediately realized its not the tires it was the ride height that made it seem smaller. Once you bring it down 1-1.5 inches you'll see a massive difference in overall appearance

That's not going to fit. The rears are too wide and too aggressive an offset.

You should be able to run another pair of fronts for your rears though.

You should do the math yourself, but I stand by what I said. Just look at the numbers. It's a 10" wheel with ET25.

Even if adjusting your camber helped, it'd look ridiculous, like a trashy "tuned" Honda, and still rub.

I know ye itís a huge wheel. But the wheel donít come off of the bodytrims as you can see in the pictures. so itís in the limit! Maybe if I put just 265 tyre with (oval) profile it wonít rub!

front rims are fine for 255 but rear rims should be et40 for 10Ē then you can use 275 tire

rear rim et is too agressive even on pre lci e90. you will rub with 265. I had 513m wheels with 275 rear and it was perfect fit with only a few mm gap to fender. you should get diff rims if you want to run proper wide rubber

you should visit tire shop and have them test it. Maybe they can increase camber and fit it. You are butchering poor car because of non optimal rims.

Yes thatís the best thing to do, Iím gonna try to test few used tyres with several sizes to see which one is good. About cutting the fender it was done by a paint car shop, professionally done, donít worry. Looks like OEM 😊

Thanks for the help!!

You could probably fit them with your original size tires (Stretched)

On my e92 the 220 M wheels are similar 19x8.5 +29 and 19x9.5 +22. You can fit a 235/35 or 245/35 front and a 265/30 and hardly a 275/30 depending on rub. It's all very close because of sizes, drop and camber. You can make them fit.
