      I think I can't get them +35 with a 7" wide wheel. Not sure what to do for lowering though because I can't seem to find many good threads for ix suspension setups that won't drop the car a lot. I still have to deal with massive curbs on my driveway.

        H&R sports is a pretty mild drop really. It's about the same height after as a stock RWD E30.

          So just stock shocks and h&r's?

            No, not with stock shocks. The minimum would be Bilsteins with the bump stops trimmed, better would be Koni SA's.

              Bilstein HD's with HR Sports work?

              Sorry for all the questions. Just don't have the money to try and fail :(

                Yes. Its recommended to trim the front bump stops for the best ride quality.

                    I'd also buy a set of front axle boots (mainly the inners) if you haven't had them replaced in a while. Both my inner boots tore ~500 miles after I installed the H&R's also cutting the bump stops is important unless you want the front end to ride stiff. I've done 10k on the H&R/Billy setup and I'm just now cutting my bump stops; Rides too rough..

                      Dang thanks for the link. Will definitely be putting in an offer on those. Not sure of the boot condition. Will definitely be replacing those though if need be.

                        I'm a sucker for marketing. What do we think of these K02 tires? Also the minimum size is 215/65-16 Too much for the iX?

                        I'm looking for a good off road/snow tire. Suggestions welcome.

                          215/65/16? That's huge. Do you have the suspension jacked up for off roading?

                            they might fit but you'll have to be careful with clearance up front.

                            I think you'd be better going with a smaller, lighter 15" tire that actually fits though. :p

                              For reference: 1991 325ix, lowered ~1.3" H&R sport/Bilstein HD with 949Racing 6UL 15x8 +36 offset wheels, wearing hankook rs3 in 225/45/15. About 5mm clearance from the front struts.

                                That's great, I always figured those would fit the ix really well but few people have tried them. mine are only 15x7.5 but as they are still basically like new I haven't had any reason to "upgrade".

                                Looks like there's room for a bit more tire as well.
