Cades Apollo/offset question...

Trying to find a place that stocks the Apollo wheels as I'm ready to buy now. Bmautosport, sods law, are sold out of the et35 rears. They have et45 rears but my question is this. I know I can space out, but am I right thinking that as they are et45, the concave on the rear will be much less pronounced as the centre of the wheel is further out?

Second question, bmautosport don't have dates for re-supply again. Does anyone else have any suggestions of a decent company that would possibly stock?

Thanks guys,
Mart

P.s yes I've changed my mind on wheels yet again lol.

Hey Mart1000, I have a set of the Apollo's on my e90 and I'd like to sell them. PM me for more info if you are interested. I'm also not that far from you.

Don't SSDD supply them? Have you consulted them on availability?

Also don't they only come in 20"? If so its a 10" wide rear IIRC so spacers might be out of the question. The concave would be less than ET35's but barely noticeable to the naked eye IMHO.

I've got a set up for sale too!!

Not sure on offset as they are stored with a friend....

I'll give him a call and see if he can take a look for me.

You're thoughts are right on the concave, the higher the ET the smaller the concave.

I'll dig out some pictures of the ones I've got fitted to the E90, I'm thinking the ET35 rears as they have quite a big concave.....

Spoke to Teddy, he said a package would work out cheaper elsewhere so at least he's honest!

Managed to find a set w/tyres, they will be here by Wednesday. Also I spoke to garage next door at work and they assure me the car will be lowered tomorrow.

Can't wait, should look good

Ah right. Mines black. Wouldn't have been my first choice in colour, bitch to keep clean but it does look good. Wheels will be high gloss silver.

Changed my mind over the lmr's as the polished lip was worrying me, didn't want to have to worry about laquer peel and yearly refurbs.
