New aftermarket Wheels

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to post up a pic of my new wheels and the wheel/tire sizes I chose. I thought it may be helpful for others who may be in the market for new wheels because when I was looking I had a very hard time finding information regarding wheel offsets and tire widths.

Anyways, I found these wheels from the 3 series side of the forum and purchased them through BaverianX who by the way have very good customer service and were excellent to deal with. The wheels are Miro STP-2 in matte black with polished step lip. The front is 19x8.5 et35 and the rear is 19x9.5 et45, the tires are 245/40/19 int he front and 275/35/19 in the rear (these happen to be the factory 19" tire size for the F10) in the future I will be putting on the factory 19" staggered size from the F25. Everything fits really good and I'm very happy with the offsets and tire widths, it gives the x3 a very aggressive look now honestly I haven't noticed much difference in ride quality.

hey guys,

I can get some side shots as soon as it stops raining/snowing and I can get the car clean again. Hopefully it won't be too long.

Though I am not knocking your choice of wheels, the style in which you selected does not accent the lines and body of the X3 very well.

I am aware that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, a forum is a place of honest answers and that is what you will get from me. With that said, I again don't want you to think I am knocking your choice as I am just voicing (typing for that matter) my opinion.

I concur with the above comment. It looks small for the x3.

How's the ride quality?
