Anyways my question is what sizes fit best for the Z4, mainly 19x10 vs 19x11.
I have a set of Linea Corsa LMs, 19x8.5 , 19x9.5 that I could switch over but i feel that they may be wide enough in the rear.

Also when looking for wheels would it be safe to say that M3 fitment and options would be best for us?

Thanks for your input and advise!! I've been searching all the Beemer forums with out any luck on solid stats...

A very aggressive setup could be 19x9.5 front (your rears on the front of the Z) and 19x11 rear. It depends on offset values and suspensions (ARE YOU ON COILOVER?). Offset values for this setup: Front 28-30 / Rear 35-37. These are the exact offsets limits to avoid inner rubbing and sticking out from the fenders. With some spacers you can match them perfectly, if you need.

Otherwise go with a more conservative 19x8.5 front (ET around 25-30) and 19x10 rear (ET around 35-40).
