E90/E92 Wheels on an F30? See pics..

Well I had to find out if indeed my wheels off my E92 would fit,,,..They are
VMR VB3's 225 front/ 255 rear. It's only been a few days I own the car...I KNOW I NEED A DROP. Let's start with the F30 wheels..they do fit all e90/e92.. The e90/e92 wheels WILL fit the front beautifully but will be a lil' aggressive on the rear, it sticks out about 1/8 of an inch...basically it looks very muscular from behind and everyone seems to think it looks better. Some may hate it ,,but I can deffinately live with it. The ride..improved by far, the runflats Do not do the car justice. good or bad..tell me what you think.

Very nice! Are they 18"?

And YES, you definitely need a drop!

Yes, 18's...Perhaps 19's would look better, but the streets here are very poor.

You need to go for at least 19" IMHO!

Otherwise the wheels look too small. Yes the roads here in Toronto are really bad too but I'm fine. I just need to keep my eyes opened and looking down at the road...

E9X series tires are smaller than the F30 series. The rear on a staggered E90 is 255/35/18. On the F30 its 255/40/18. Thats a 4% diff in overall diameter. Fix the tire size and it wont look undertired like Maz said.

Hi, any chance of re uploading the pics? the links are dead...

I'm quite interested in fitting E90's in my F31, as per I like the design more and the tires price.... in 17" the 225/50/17 costs a 60% more than the 225/45/17

my concerns are the rim size and the Offset (E90 8 / 34 -- F30 7.5/ 37)

so maybe it's gonna be very close to the calipers, leaving aside that probably they're going to make tinier in the wheel space

OP hasn't been on the site in two months. I'm guessing he's moved on.
