            re measurements:
            as per BMW ride ht is measuresd from fender lip to lower rim lip:
            @20.5 front
            @19.1 rear


            (I would think it would be hard for everyone to get "center" of wheel equally)

              and exactly how does that help us if everyone has a different rim size? fender to the centercap seems pretty easy to me. these aren't exactly scientifically accurate measurements anyway..
