    Question about wheel gap?

    Car: E92 335i with stock sport suspension


    How bad would the wheel gap be with these in 19's with 245/40/19 front and 275/35/19 rear tires? I know nothing about off-set and all that so opinions are welcome. Just want to know how it would look without a drop.

    Sorry if the link didn't work, but the wheels are the MM6 mesh.

    It would look like a jeep up front. About a 2 inch gap.

    Are you on stock wheels now?

    A good calculator to use is this : http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp

    Just plug in the specs of your stock setup and whatever you're looking to buy. In regards to offset, the lower the ET, the further out it will stick.

    If you're going to a taller than stock tire, the gap will look a little smaller, but not by much. Going taller will also affect your speedometer reading.

    With the information you provide, I have no idea what exactly you are asking?
    Pics?

    If the suspension is stock, and the wheel size is close to stock the gap would probably stay the same.
    But you can check this yourself quite easily.
    Go to this site, and see what the difference is in wheel height of the tire. Then you know.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    I'm on stock 18" rims and looking to purchase 19's. I'm not set on those tire sizes, just want a size that would look nice without a drop. The width of the tires I stated above is what I would go with, and the height was just from stock height which I'm sure is too tall since height is usually a % of the width?

    If you know your wheel size now you can easily check the difference via the link I provided.
    Rim size is not relevant at all.

    Those tires seem too tall. The stock F10 5 series run 245/40/19. What are your stock sizes?

    I'm basically asking those that have an e92 on stock sport suspension that have upgraded to 19" wheels, what was the best looking setup without a drop (offset and tire sizes)?

    225/35 - 19 is .5% off 225/40 - 18
    If you can get it to fit 255/30 - 19 is only .3% off
    255/30 - 19 is the same circumference as 255/35 - 18
    305/25 - 19 is only .1% off

    No idea if you can get those tires to fit though.
    I have an E82 myself.
    Ask @CoreyWB for solutions or offset.
