Need opinion on wheels for 2010 135i
 
I'm considering in buying some csl reps made by alufelgen wheels. The model is their cs7 the size of the wheels are 19 x 9.5 in the rear and 19 x 8.5 in the front both with a 35et my question is will they fit or do I need to make mods and what tire size will fit. Thanks!

35 should be ok.... Pretty closed to guard but should be ok

9.5 rear can be a bit wide

I had 19x9 with 35 off set on mine before with 235/35/19 tires and pretty closed to the edge on rear

Thanks! Was your car ever lowered?

it was a sport pack (so a bit lower than normal) and 19x9 with 235/35/19 gave me about 1/2 inch clear of the guard.... swapped back to 18" at the end as driving in heavy rain there was not enough space for water to clear out of the guard and that can be dangerous

What about apex wheels?

It might literally come down to actual shape of the tire.

I thought tires are all round shape

Nope, some tires have squared off or "blocked" shoulders; some tires are more tapered.

Look on the e9x wheel and tire forum. Tons of fitiment threads...

This is a fitment that is for the 3 series specifically. It is considered very aggressive on a 1 series and will require you to adjust your camber, roll your fenders, and run stretched tires. Definitely not the optimal size. Alufelgen does not make the CS7 in the 1 series specific fitments in 19" and it's only available in 18".

18x8.0 ET45 - 225/40/18
18x9.0 ET48 - 255/35/18

If you're looking for a 19" setup, I'd recommend that you check out the VMR VB3 CSL style wheels. The offsets are slightly aggressive but will work so long as you run the correct spec tires on stock height.

19x8.5 ET40 - 225/35/19
19x9.5 ET45 - 245/30/19
