    what about considering it's the same size tire (235/40) on a 7.5" wide wheel up front and 8.5" in back? I mean technically, with the stretch won't there be less "height" on the sidewall?

    matt; those are real contours I'd assume. but I don't see the ///m logo?

    anyone want to buy bridgestone re050's, 225/45/17 up front 245/40/17 in back? tons of tread left, will sell cheap.

      very nice... Did you get these from NC?


        I'm such a wheels whore :)

        Staggered style 68. 245/40 in the rear don't rub and fenders still aren't rolled. Had a tiny scrape when I packed everything up for the picnic. Front 225/45 still scrapes on the inside wall at full lock.

        Tires are Fuzion ZRi, incredible handling now.

              SSR Comp-H 17x8.5", Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec 235/40ZR17 all the way around. Bilstein Sports and IE Stage 3 springs, GC Camber/Caster Plates and Adjustable Links up front, IE adjusters in the back with urethane bushings in all the places that count. '99 M3 setup up front including the rack, 318ti rears. Rebuilt calipers, brass guide pins, slotted rotors, and Vorshlag 15mm spacers with 90mm studs up front, no spacers and 75mm studs in the back. I'm sure there's other stuff I'm not thinking of...

              Aligned for autocross w/ light street driving as follows:

              -2.3 deg camber front
              -1.3 deg camber rear
              1/8" toe out front
              1/16" toe in rear
              9.3 deg caster (I could take more out but the strut towers have to be modified a bit to allow more adjustment with the GC plates).

              Anyway, it was a LOT of work to do by myself, but I'm very pleased with the results.

                Did you have to do anything special to get those e34 m5 brakes fit in the rear with the e36 compact setup?

                  17x8 with 215/45s I go through wheels a bit too fast.

                            What offset are your rear wheels? Are the M-Coup trailing arms not longer like the Z3 2.8l ones are? I tried the Z3 2.8 ones and there was no way in hell they were going to fit, but your setup looks great.

                            The picture in my sig is with the Z3 2.8l trailing arm installed the wheels are 18x8.5 et 40. Fender crunch city.

                              the rear offset is et30 @ 8.5 in that photo .. my rear 9.5's are et32 which I calculated that they would stick out 10.7mm more which is what I will pump the gaurds to clear.

                                were you able to fit the m3 brakes in both those wheels?
