    318Ti rear, no adjusters, et20 wheel fitment PICS

    I am posting this as a reference to those of you who are wondering what offset to use with 318ti rears. I am not trying to start a stance war, there is just alot of bad info out there about offsets and 318ti rear set-ups. As you can see I obviously need fender rolling and I'll obviously have to use small(ish) tires. I don't need anyone telling me this.

    Wheel specs:

    17x8 et20 OEM e60 5 series wheels

    No weld on adjusters or eccentric bushings. The rear of my car is straight up delrin.

    you are gonna have to roll that fender pretty far and still use smallish tires.

                  looking good. I love the wheels you chose.

                  You'll have to roll and pull a little. Also, front always sits a little wider than rear, so don't forget that...

                  I am running 215's on 8" wheel right not, and I don't like the ever-so-slight stretch. Just looks like a bad fit.

                      Hoping to get the rolling done this week, we'll see how that goes on the 20 year old paint!

                      I have everything for the front, just waiting for a nice day and some free time to get out in the garage and put it together. It will be e36 M3 96+ front with koni's and GC coilover collars. Going for maybe 450/700, maybe 500/700 spring rates fr/rr.
