    I purchased a set of BF, G-Force R-1s to run on my 09 328i sedan in De's. Ran one weekend at Road Atlanta an then traded the car for a 2013 328i sedan, sport line the following week . The r-1s are 225/45 17, I can't use the wheels that came with my new car for obvious reasons { there18s }I really want to see what the new F-30 can do on track. So any thoughts out there about what would be a good wheel to mount the r-1s 225/45 17 on the F-30, and does anyone see any problems with this change I plan on running AMP in less than two weeks. Thanks

    Atlanta Motorsports Park? What event is going there?

    Use the TireRack.com wheel selection tool for your exact model - I tried a 2013 328i coupe w/ M Sport package and it showed 17" wheels for that model, & Tire Rack is pretty good with fitment info. Personally, I'd go for these:

    Lightweight & relatively cheap - I suspect 225's are undersized for your car, but I can't speak for what wider would fit - I fit 255's at all 4 corners on my E92 (non-M) on Apex wheels with no problem, as I recall same offset/width as these Kosei's. But, you can use up the 225's and go wider later.
