Do you guys think the rear or front 19inch M3 rims look better? Theyre different and Im thinking about putting 19inch Rears in the front and back. :dunno:

Fronts


Rears

Uh, how are they different? Am I missing it? Those look identical. Not to mention I don't know why they would look different to begin with, short of the amount of dish or something. I can't really remember for sure.

Also, are you putting these on an M? If not, they're not gonna fit right. If you are, they're also not gonna fit right if you put all rears all around.

uh no, they wont work. offset is more aggressive in the rear, not to mention it is about 9 inches wide in the rear..i think. most people here on the board only go 8.5 in the front

Yeah man that won't work properly. There is a reason that the front wheel is offset less than the rear. That's just how they fit. You'd have to do some mods to put 9 inches wide on the front as well...I personally have never heard of anyone doing that but speak up and help this guy out if you have!

Okay, you got the skinny on the sizes. I agree with 6SpeedM3, these are the nicest stock BMW wheels I've ever seen. In fact, if you want to get rid of them feel free to email me.
