    From what I've been reading - you have all the right stuff...but need the 96-99 M3 spindles for proper caster/wheel orientation.

    I get rub with 225/45 but not my 225/35. However I could use a bit more sidewall

    I couldn't find a tire with 40 aspect ratio. 45 was the closest in a 17. I know people have run them on their 5 lug swapped cars because I stumbled upon them when looking for what tire size for a 17x8.

    Those tires will rub regardless of the number of lugs you have. 225/40 would be what you want if you need 225s.

    Well, your tires are oversized which isn't helping.

    Rubbing in the Front?

    So I got the last of my 5 lug sorted and installed on the car. Moving the car around out of the garage I noticed that my tires are rubbing the inside fender wells to death closest to the firewall on sharp turns. Is this normal or do I need to take a sledge hammer to it? :)

    Specs:
    BC E36 Coils w/ E30 camber plate
    96+ OEM M3 Control arms
    OEM E30 M3 offset CAB
    95' E36 M3 spindle
    Hartge 17x8 et40
    Nitto Neogen 225x45x17
Working...
