I'm looking into the same setup, but I see you're running 225 in the front. How's the clearance? One shop recommended 235 in the front. You think that would fit?

Updated, dropped the front down one more perch (don't think it really did anything though lol) and got the car aligned.

Some new pics by a good friend Jm3as!



















Opinions? I kinda feel like the front could be lower at some views...but i really don't have room to drop much anymore unless i camber more =/

Real photoshoot by real photographers will come soon. These are just my quick snaps.

Car still needs to get aligned too, camber/toe is probably off in the front.

was 19x8.5 & 19x10





now 19x9.5 & 19x11















Thanks for looking!

DAMN!!

The first few pics with your LMs dude... Please tell me the exact spec / tyre size (rear and front), Offsets, Camber? Everything!!

I'm looking for a stance like your first few pics which I can drive on comfortably (already dropped on BC coilovers FYI so just need me so rims and stretched tyres, roll arches) but need your exact specs first tho!

Mad props! One of the Nicest E92s around!

I have conti DWSs, which have kinda rounded and chubby side walls, so I do not think i'd be able to do 235s in the fronts.

my 225/35 fits perfectly, i can probably go a slight lower, but my fenders would get raped on turns (unless i camber a lot more up front), but it'd just depend on what tires you go with.

Lol, thanks for so much love man, i dont think my car is that special though haha.

you can find the wheel specs in the OP. tires are 225/35/19s and 265/30/19s! Camber is -1.1 up front, i think around -3.2 now in the rear lol. Nothing i can do unless i get camber plates for the rear.

if you take a look at ~XxTeexX~'s car, you will get an idea lol. he has 19x12.5 +27 in the rear O_O_O_O , boss status. He has an amazing stance.

Thanks dude. How is the ride with such wide plates both front and back?

Referring to your old set up.. did you have to roll the arches/fenders at all?

Did you have to shave the front fenders? Or they fit as is?

the ride is still amazing lol, coming from a lowered japanese car (WRX), the ride at this height is still 100x better than my last car haha.

rears are slightly rolled and pulled for the last set up and had almost 0 rub issues, now it's a different story though.

Very informative thread! I have the same dilemma, but after reading this thread I now know which wheel, tires, camber I want moving forward.

Thanks for saving me from making a costly mistake.

with such an amazingly aggressive wheel setup, I feel like the front end needs to be a bit more aggressive to match it. Looks great nonetheless!
