PICS - 19x9.5 Front on lowered E92

Wanted to share a couple pics of a 9.5 et33 front on a lowered E92, just for documentation. When I originally searched, I could only find stock suspension examples or E90s.

Setup: (No fender roll)
VMR VB3
19x9.5 et33 Front - 235/35 Continental DW
19x10 et25 Rear - 265/30 Continental DW

Thoughts:
The front wheel, without tire, is about 1mm away from the V2 strut body. Seeing that was a little scary, but so far I don't rub at all even on full lock.

Without a roll in the rear, I rub slightly on dips or with rear passengers. With a roll I think this goes away completely.

Lastly, the grip is insane. With this setup there is little to no under/oversteer, and the car feels very neutral. Even with Cobb Stage 1 Agressive, my tires don't spin unless I want them to do so. Also, the ride quality with the DW is much better than the stock run flats, but with this wide of a front I do tramline quite a bit more.

On to the pics (Will update the thread with more detailed pics later):

Hey, I posted in your pic thread about your front wheel fitment.

So it IS cutting it pretty close. Is there room to go lower since the wheel is 1mm away from the strut? I had this issue when I was running 9" +38 for my old wheels, but I currently switched up my wheels and am running 9" +26 and lowered more in the front.

And a fender roll will definitely take away the slight rubbing issue you have in the rear.

Yep, it is very tight to the strut, but I think I can still go down another inch or so in the front without having any real issues with the fenders. I'll probably try it this weekend.

With the 9" +26, do you have any rubbing issues? What about in full lock?

I love it! Very classy combo, and it's very surprising to know that those fit. 1mm of clearance to the strut is pretty close though. Overall that setup looks awesome though. You can't go wrong with VB3s!

No issues at full lock, and no rubbing. My rears are 10" +20 with 265/30 and I was able to get those not to rub either!

Not yet. Had to help my lady move this past weekend and I'm in a wedding this weekend.

Hoping to do it soon though, so I'll post pics asap.

Here is mine w/ I-Forge Triumph w/ Yoko AD08.....has little rubbing issue which require minor fender roll work on the rear!! But it is all because of the AD08 thicker tire wall as I used to have a set of Falken 275-30-19 on the rear w/ totally not rubbing at all!! Moreover, I changed the all suspension arms to M3 setting inclusive the rear chamber link which able to render more camber for the ride though!!

Front as 19"x8.5" w/ tires 235/35/19
Rear as 19"x10.5" w/ tires 265/30/19
