Very smooth, perfect offsets, I think this car deserves some glamour shots!

Looks great, but it has to be lowered and the rears are sticking out a little too much.

i bet if you did a 265 in the rear and rolled the fender and threw on some coilovers (stiffer) you would be fine.

Looks great bro, would like to see a full out photoshoot when these slight problems are fixed.

Do you by any chance know the front offset?

Front is 19x.5 et 32 with 245/35/19
Rear is 19x19 et 25 with 275/30/19

I don't think I will go to 265 tires becoz the wheels will stick out more. I am thinking to cut down the offseto et 30...

He is going with a stretched look. The tire is a little smaller width wise, but allows him to run a more aggressive rim while limiting the rubbing on the car.

LM's look great!!!

damn good looking car, I agree it needs a drop though. Maybe some agressive fender rolling will do the trick.

love the wheels,
looks like Toyo's T1R, I got them too, they're great... Toyo has a 30days ride guarantee, so you can upgrade the rears at no cost/lost.

... a little drop & maybe short SSK
you are "good to Go!"

for the coupe and sedan....I can confirm fellas that the 10 inch et25 bbs lm's will rub if the car is lowered.....

fender rolling won't help, and adding more than -2 degrees of camber will lead to tire wear....

on the 325, i put them on just for grins...they came off of the e46m3....just to test fit to let RAC know what the correct e92m3 offsets and width's might be....just as i thought, the 10in rears do stick out, and if lowered...rubbbbb a dubbbbbb dubbbbbb..

i've seen folks roll fenders and such, but its gonna take a little less offset in a 10in. wheel to work.

what tire specs were in the rear. i know that if they came off of an e46 m3, u most likely were using 275 in the rear. if u used 265 they wouldnt rub with a fender roll.
