An OEM+ Squared Fitment
Eze & I chatted about the dream specs of having a 11in rear wheel or a perfectly fitting 19x10 square setup specifically for the E9X M3 by using flow forming technology.
The advantages of a squared setup are improved aesthetics via matching front and rear concavity profiles, the ability to rotate front and rear wheels for tire wear, and a front axle balance that will reduce understeer and improve our M3s ability to rotate the rear end.
Read up on the complete backstory to this Connex here.
Matching Concavity and Contact Patch
I have extensively researched fitments for no rubbing, suspension & caliper clearance. The concavity profile is 1:1 with OEM in on the 10in squared variant for true OEM+ aesthetics.
The wheels weight around 25 lbs - that is lighter than OEM for a more aggressive offset. I highly recommend you run a 10 to 15mm rear spacer depending on your alignment specifications to achieve a flush fitment.
The wheels are offered in 2x standard finishes: Satin Black and Hypersilver. AG uses a 3 stage paint process to achieve as close to OEM Hypersilver as possible, there will be slight variations to the trained eyes.
Gloss Black, along with Gunmetal are offered as custom powdercoat options and are done at AG Wheels facilities in California. These add around 2 to 3 weeks to lead time and a slight upcharge.

The front wheel's offset will give enough clearance for spring perches from most coilover kits. May need a +5mm spacer for some fitments. I'd prefer being conservative for stock suspension guys and giving 5mm spacer leeway.
