I decided to switch them out cause the E36 pads are 15mm thick compared to the stock E46 at 5mm. The end result was more adjustable range in height and more even stress distribution on the cast arm.

Installed 18" Advan RGII (18x9 et22 & 18x10 et25) ... Need to get them repainted (long story)
Looking good! Was this car parked in Makiki today? I think I saw it on my way to work.

What are you planning to do with the stock wheels/tires? I just found out my rear tires are corded (previous owner ).
