    I will probably regret this but trying to squeeze 205/50. I went with 18mm front and 20mm rear 42 draft design adapters. The setup will like require fender rolling and/or pulling. Keep you all posted. Should have new tires next week.

        205's should be fine on an 8 with final ET3 with maybe a light roll. Might get away with 225's with a good roll even.

                Setting ride height. Rear is where I want it and front needs to come up about 1/2"

                    Shop had a spare driveshaft laying around. I would still like to find one to replace their inventory, except everyone wants to charge M3 prices...lol

                            I could have made you 15mm 4x100 to 5x120 adaptors if needed.

                            I drove a 325e across America and now i am shipping it home to London, England

                              Got any pics or links? Depending on how this fits, I may be interested. I thought most won't go below 18mm, for safety reasons, so curious what your setup looks like. I'd much rather run 15mm in front and 18mm in back.

                                I have an Instagram page called @adaptorsbyben which has photos of cars that run my adaptors which range from anything all the way up to high end Audi RS models and even have a couple of Lamborghini's running them. i don't really advertise too much its more just Instagram and word of mouth.

                                its perfectly safe to run 15mm but i wouldn't make them any smaller. The issue you have is the standard thread on a bolt is normally 18mm so the bolt will bottom out so you have to trim them. However, if you fit a stud kit on the adaptor you wont have an issue of them bottoming out or needing to go through the painful process of trimming 3 down on 20 bolts.

                                I am in England, but i do ship anywhere in the world, last time i sent some to California i believe it cost me circa 40 for the post and that was airmail 5 days, insured and recorded.
