New wheels & tires

First post here. New member. Just got gunmetal 19 inch Alufelgen sf-71 wheels and tires on my 2012 335i coupe. I think it looks great. Next is a JB4 upgrade for 60 hp gain. Can't post pics from iPhone it seems.

Got 19in wheels and tires on my car today. I am new to this forum. Got my wheels and rims from modbargains. Got treated really well there. Very happy with the look on my 2012 bmw 335i.

Welcome. Nice wheels. I plan on getting a set of alufelgens in the spring. Still deciding between CS7 and SF71.

Wish the sf-71 came in 18". Not sure I want to sacrifice anymore comfort 19".

3is. Actually I find that my new wheels and tires are more comfortable than stock. That's because run flats that came with car are gone and the tires are ever so slightly ticker. Also have the benefit of quieter ride given that I don't have the run flats. If you are in Southern California, you can drive and physically look at the wheels at the mod bargains store. That's what I did. Otherwise, order online from them. They have plenty of pics to look at to decide.

Test drive a M3.

Is it better? Why, other than diif engine profile?

Now, then. You can have that with suspension mods + LSD. If you do same before upgrading power, you'll be a very happy BMW pilot.

Though JB4's pretty good juju, most breeze right past the soon realized facts of life: A number of BMW suspension parts are not up to par for increased power. In fact, stock power is much better by correcting these problems.

Cruise suspension sub-forums - you'll read all about it.

Congrats on the Alufelgen SF-71 wheels and thanks for giving us the opportunity to earn your business. The wheels definitely add a sporty/aggressive look to the car. It is currently one of my favorite designs as it features a classic mesh design with a concave look!

If you're looking for a tune, I'd recommend that you check out the Cobb AccessPORT. The Cobb AccessPORT ECU Flash simply replaces conservative factory settings with more aggressive calibrations that result in impressive gains in torque and horsepower while still maintaining a high degree of safety for your N54 engine. The tuning is extremely flexible and allows you to choose on the fly one of the performance maps that are loaded onto the AccessPORT. Typical performance gains from the Cobb AccessPORT Stage 1 flash are increases of 30% peak horsepower and an amazing 38% increase in peak torque. This tune is an ECU flash, not a piggy-back tuner, there will be no added devices to your vehicle's ECU. I'll shoot you over a PM with more details on this!

You can't go wrong with either the Alufelgen CS7 or the Alufelgen SF-71. To be honest with you, your ride quality is actually going to improve if you go with the 19" with non run flat tires vs your stock 18" setup with run flats. Run flats aren't the best for performance, arenít the quietest, and are definitely not comfortable! Getting rid of them will be one of the best decisions you can make!

Body Color Painted Reflectors for the E92/E93 definitely make a huge difference. Our body colored reflectors are actually the same original BMW reflectors that currently sit in your cars bumper with OEM paint. It's a relatively inexpensive mod that makes a huge difference
