Vorsteiner V-FF 103 size??

I have a 2018 M2 and am confused about wheel size for V-FF 103. I want to run 255 up front and 275 rear. What size wheel do I need for those running them? 19 or 19.5 and can I stick with 35s instead of 30s? Also, I have 10mm BMS spacers and should I reuse them or no spacers. My car is dropped about 1 in on KW HAS.

Anyone have this set up and what do you suggest?

The offsets on the 103's are already more aggressive than the stock rims. For the M2, they have a 9" in front and a 10" in rear. Vorsteiner recommends 245/35 front and 285/30 rear. You can run 255/275 if you want.

I wouldn't use the spacers. The rears will already stick out more without them. I was quoted 6mm more than stock rims with 10 mm spacers. The fronts will be 2mm inward than with stock rims and 10 mm spacers.

Hope that helps...

I thought it wasn't recommended to be more than 20 apart front and rear (245/265, 255/275, etc.?). 245 to 285 seems like a big difference. How does this impact ride feel and any rubbing in the rear?

I'm a little confused now. So help me here if you can.

I already posted on another thread here: https://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1541229

In any case, I ordered and received V-FF 103's and was informed that they're 19x9 ET21 and 19x10.5 ET40. I read elsewhere the fronts are actually 19x9.5. So which is correct?

They also recommend 255/35 and 285/30. I'm wondering whether I should stick with 245/35 fronts instead.

I've personally never heard that about not running more than 20 mm apart. I almost went with 245/35 and 275/30 but after running the calculations and seeing that Vorsteiner recommends this, I changed to the 285's.

My fault! The fronts are 9" wide... Not 9.5". I'll edit my original post. I've been looking at too many rims! Lol!

When you say "they recommend" who are you referring to? I've seen multiple times in this forum that Vorsteiner info recommends the combo I mentioned above and they provide picture examples of that spec as well.

I have not gotten mine yet. They are on order
