    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.

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.

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

    That was adding metal. All 4 corners have been worked over with new metal.

    Just how much arch work was required to get the 275s on the rear to fit?

    Thanks
