Finally put the winter set on...w/pics

Winter has still not really arrived in MI yet, but decided to put on my new winter wheels (M3 reps with Blizzaks). Wheels look pretty good, but I think I may need some spacers in the back (they tuck in a bit much for my liking given the narrower, square setup). I think spacers would fix the problem?

Sorry for the limited (iPhone) quality.

Royal Oak.
They are 18s--seem to work just fine so far (a bit smoother than my 19" summer setup over the wonderful MI roads).

nice, haven't seen your car around royal oak

i'm running the stock 16's with the run flats on a bilstein/eibach suspension setup and i honestly think the summer ride with the 19's was better

Agreed - I have outgrown the fun of winter/snow growing up and dont really have a use for it anymore (but for the occasional snomobiling at my cottage and skiing up north on small hills). I would rather bear the heat in exchange for a mild winter. If I could move, I probably would (maybe NC)...but tons of family and friends would be too hard to leave.

If I lived somewhere warm, I would probably have a different car though...I sold my modded ls3 vette because it was way less practical, but maybe I would have a supercharged grand sport if I lived somewhere warm who knows.

Very nice E90. Tastefully done too. I can probably offer some advice on the spacers if you haven't already purchased a set.

You saw me this morning, so maybe you noticed that I still need some spacers. What do you suggest? Thanks.
