Thanks all! I'm more of a show-er kind of guy. I have downpipes, charge pipe, bov, and an active autowerke AP2 tune. But I'm not tracking it. I'm also going to put air suspension on it soon.

why can't it be safe? that's not even super stretched. furthermore, tire shops wont send a car out of their shop unsafe - too easy to sue if something went wrong. that stretch is easily within the tires specs and is more then safe enough.

Most tire shops will do whatever you pay them to do and just tell you they are not liable if something happens. I can see the edge of the wheel, to me that is too stretched. I dont think its safe, thats me. according to tire rack, the rim width should be between 8-9.5inch, so I guess 10 isnt too bad but I still dont think its right. I run a 275 on my 10 inch wheels (my GTO) and even those are a little stretched for me. Just my opinion. Maybe they arent "unsafe" but I wouldnt do it. Ive seen a few "hella flush/stretched" tires come off of the rims after hitting a big bump because the tires were too stretched. no need to shit in the OPs thread though.

Style of wheel and fitment? OK. Chrome (unless I am crazy and it is polished which I doubt) NO. Your car tho OP, enjoy it

Any reputable tire shop will not send a wheel/tire out if it's unsafe. You won't be taking your $4000 rims and tires to Al's backyard tire - Especially if you require a stretch.

I definitely definitely dig it. Great work on the fitment. 9's are pretty wide for the fronts. Based on the photos, looks like you had your fenders slightly pulled too.

It's weird how a slammed car can make most rims look good. You pulled it off, nice car man.

With tires and finish I wouldn't doubt $3000-$4000. Nevertheless, price doesn't make my point, I'm simply saying with a BMW you won't be driving to some backyard tire shop.

Do people still install chrome wheels? They seem so 90's unless you're a rap star or from New Jersey. Sorry, just my opinion.

Personally I definitely do not like it, but I don't hate it. It does however remind me of the slammed mini truck style. I found it funny that I was thinking this and you mentioned airbags while I was reading through the thread.
