      Is that the maximum rear toe in you could get with the Z3M trailing arms?

        I could have gotten more, but wanted to run 0 in the rear for traction and tire wear. I set my camber and toe plates in the middle range when welding them to my subframe. You could set them more aggressively when welding them to the subframe to allow more adjustment but I knew I wouldn’t need it so welded my adjustment plates conservatively.

          Does it feel like the Z3M trailing arms have more toe out then the E30 arms do?

          Have you tried running some toe in in the back?
          Should help with traction and tire wear.

            No I have only had it set to zero toe. I think the Z3M arms are dimensionally the same as standard E30 arms when I comes to camber/toe. They create a wider wheelbase because they do come out farther than standard E30 trailing arms though.

                  I’m looking for some direction here.
                  im doing a 5 lug swap, or should I say gathering the parts necessary. The particular E30 is a 91 convertible. I have front e36 m3 knuckles, gettin a complete front suspension refresh kit for a 96’ and up m3 from ex’s , New front struts etc.
                  complete z3 1.9 l rear set up,

                  this is supposedly the two most straight forward “bolt up “ plug and play options according to r3v wiki,

                  that being said. I’m not looking for it to be track ready, nor do I want it to be soft and mushy. Just spirited + a lil
                  that’s why I’m going OEM Sachs shocks and struts with hr sport spring only lowering 1.4” front and .75” rear.

                  i want to run squared 16x8 or 7 j wheels

                  so now for the question!

                  what is the best offset to run, for a no modifications fit. Would like to throw 215+/50or55 tires on them?
