Ya I know it's not hard to fit. Just saying if he seen it he might get an idea on what it would take to fit 13 et ya know!!

Most likely the front, even if going with the same specs though things such as camber, tire size, fender cutting, ride height, spring rates all play a role into rubing

It seems odd that it's so hard to get a 9.5 up front on an e92 even with stretch. Are you talking about rubbing the strut or rubbing the fender in the front? I would imagine that the fender would crack if you have much pressure against it (being plastic and all).

My guess is that he is having to do some serious work to get them to fit.

I imagine that's true. But I would appreciate even a short typed response of the progress.

Can you provide any details on what you're doing in the front to make it work? Rubbing in the front?

Sorry everyone for having no updates, but there has been a problem with the machining of the rear rims that forgestar sent me and I am waiting for them to take action and fix it. Might be a while

In regards to the fitment of the rims, lets just say if Forgestar didn't mess up the machining of the rear rims, I would have them mounted and fully installed already

If you want to keep the results a secret until you can post pictures I can definitely appreciate that.

That being said, I'm seriously considering a similar setup for my e92. Would you be open to discussing your experiences over private messaging?

I dont think there are any questions on rear fitment. we want to see the SDC on the front and if it clears the brakes

I read this as he's saying that if the rear wheels were machined properly, all 4 wheels would already be installed which seems to point to success with the SDC front. But whether there are spacers being used and how much stretch/camber is all speculation at this point.

I'm really eager to see the results
