Has anyone put the BMW Performance rims on a Z4?

I've been scouring the internet for a week, and so far have not found a single picture of a Z4 with the BMW Performance rims. If anyone has them, pls pls pls pls pls pls pls share a picture of two. I will be getting them next year and would like to see how they look on the car. I could always do a Photoshop, but would prefer to see the real thing first.

313's more aggressive offset (e90 based) suits our cars better IMO.

269 in 18" only come in z4/e46 offset of 47/50 which is weak if you're going to spend money only to get the oem offsets you have now. They do have 19" in e90 offset but really pricey.

Well, first of all, BMW does not recommend using anything other than the OEM offsets, and second, I would never put a 19" on that car, especially in this country (it will become a nightmare, the streets here are like a moonscape). 18" is perfect for me.

BMW does not recommend aftermarket exhausts, tunes or any other mod to increase power neither but you're considering those so your point is weak.

I never said the 269s were bad, they look really nice but it's just a shame they don't offer the 18s in the e90 offset. And I agree I would not put 19s on either. If you want pics of 313s, check v3.0si's thread but those are not offered in the "recommended" offset in any size.

I am waiting till next summer because the RE050As I am running now are almost brand new and it would be a waste to change them now. Furthermore, I would like to look into getting Michelin PSS, and nobody is selling it in Bulgaria for now. The 269 rims and PS3 for example, will cost me 3160 USD now, and the tire's price will probably drop till next summer. I don't know how much they cost in the US but when compared to the retail price of 4400 USD (for rims and tires), that's a saving of over 1000 USD, so I am happy.

This one is nice, but for some reason the 269, in my opinion, fits the Z a lot better. After all BMW designs rims for each model, those were designed for the 3 series and I don't think they look their best on this car. I've seen a lot of 3 series with those rims here and they look awesome on the 3 series.

Do want. Too rich for my blood, though. Will have to stay with M6 reps.

That's what I wanted to see. Thank you so much.
Those look amazing. I also like how the 313s look on your car, but I am reluctant to put rims that were not meant for this model.

there are no safety issues with running E9x offsets on our cars. the only thing i can recommend is get an alignment after the switch, and ditch the runflats.

personal experience... without an alignment and keeping runflats there was no difference during in-town driving vs. the stock setup. once speeds of about 70mph were hit though, the car had a measurable increase in bumpsteer and tramlining. the car was completely manageable and not dangerous, it was simply more work to keep the car going straight... an annoyance. an alignment did help, but i believe that it's the stiffness in the sidewall between the runflats and non-runflats that really make the difference in regards to feel at speed.

that said... i highly recommend the E9x offsets. there is no rubbing and a flush fit right out of the box.
