These are just winter wheels & tires. 19" BBS/Spoke type wheels for summer.

I got the rims for $170 ($680) on Dicounttire.com and the tires ffrom tirerack.com for $600.

So I paid about $1200 total. I ran up a curb after turning off my VDIM and satisfying my need for speed. I had to replace a rear wheel. I could have either paid about $500 for a single stock wheel. I figured, why not take it further and get a new set of wheels with tires for winter.

Good thinking! Will you just put summer rubber on the rims in the Spring?

Great looking car! Definitely mess with the white balance on your camera, your car looks yellow! BTW, you're not selling your stock rims are ya? I'm continually looking for a deal on a 2nd set of rims for winter. Have some rep for the pics!

Roro, welcome and thx for the pics. I'd say you've got a few mods! BTW, curious which you prefer to drive more, your BMW or the IS?

The IS is more fun to drive right now; however, I need to take it into the shop to get the supercharger running correctly and get all of the tuning done. I plan on adding some more mods as well while it's in, so it might be few weeks before it gets back.

The 335 is fun to drive the way it is; however, it definitely needs some lowering springs and a lot more meat under the wheels. You won't believe this, but a set of 315's will fit on the rear on some 19s, but I can't remember the offset. I'm thinking of picking up a set of these for the roadcourse. I am still shopping around for the right parts for it.

How much hpower is the supercharger giving you on the 350, (when it's working?)

BTW, crazy about 315s on the BMW!?

With the 250 pulley, it put down 314 at the wheels. I've since upgraded to a 225 pulley so it will run more boost. The supercharger is working just fine, it is finding a proper size belt to go on it that is proving to be the hard part.

I have a hook up at a local tire/rim place and he pulled out one of the 315s and I was in awe at the width. Unfortunately, he's trying to sell me some Asanti rims to go with it and I don't know if i'm ready to drop $5700 on the whole package. I'm thinking more for road racing, those 315s would be bad ass as long as the rim that goes with them was not too heavy. Then again, a set of Nitto R1s would probably be faster on the track with less width. Who knows..........

Roro, From the looks of the houses in your pictures, it appears that you live in South Florida. Is that correct?
