First off, congrats on the new ride. Secondly, the M6 replicas are crappy rims to put on such a nice car. It exposes a lot of the brakes (rotors & calipers). It looks horrible if you are not doing a big brake upgrade. Do something nice and classy like the Hartge Classic II or even the E60 M5 19's. Enjoy.

The problem with E60 M5 wheels is that they are difficult to clean and those spokes look bad when brake dust gets in its grooves. As long as you clean them everyday.

Dude there are some pretty good deals in teh e90 post wheel and tire for sale treads right now, I would chekc it out and stay away from the reps. THere is a sweet set of iforged drifts for sale right now and I think you could get the dude to go lower on the price too. probably less then $3k with the tires./

forget that... too heavy. Go for the Morr VS7's...

btw congrats dude... the xi due to better traction will be faster than the all wheel drive setup especially in a 0-60 or 1/4 mile run. The handling might be a little worse due to the weight but it all evens out.

Check these out. What do you guys think of the wheels and tail lights. I think im gonna get the carbon fiber front lips too.


http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58144


Thanks for all the help and info everyone. I am going try out E90post and try to find some deals there.

I realize now that the M6 reps will make the brakes look tiny so those are out now.

I am now considering the M5 reps. I like them alot and they cover the brakes better. But they do look like an incredible pain in the ass to clean. And since its my wifes car she just goes through the car wash with it. They will be looking like shit in no time.

Im gonna look on E90post and see what some of those guys are doing with wheels to get some ideas.

Do you guys think I should go for 19s or stick with 18s?
I also def want a staggered setup.
My biggest worries are getting the correct offset and making sure the wheels work with allwheel drive. I definately dont want any rubbing.

The 17s i have now look tiny and stick in alot in the back. That rear wheel arch looks empty. I didnt get the sport package. But I think the sport XI comes with 17s also anyway.

My buddy has an EVO and he told me that its hard to find wheels that fit an allwheel drive car correctly and that rear wheel drive car wheels dont fit awd cars. I know its true for the EVO but is this true for the 335XI also.

I just dont want to buy something that doesnt fit right.

Thanks again for all the info so far and I should be picking up the car in the middle of next week sometime. I will post pics then.

P.S.
I also want to get the black line clear rear tail lights. Does anyone here have them on a 335 4 door if so where did you get them?
By the way Sanguru do you have a 4 door or 2 door. I forgot. And did you get the clear rear lights?

I wont be tracking the car at all since its my wifes but im just worried about a stiff ride with the 19s and also wheel damage on rough roads.
Did you get run flats with the 19s.
I dont want the run flats but since there is no spare and its my wifes car i dont want her to get stranded somewhere.

By the way where did you get the black line tail lights

By the way what tire and size are you running?
I went to tire rack and they only have one tire a bridgestone available in that size in run flats.
They are back ordered until october.
I think my biggest problem is gonna be finding a tire
