never thought it would be possible to rub as much as it does right now! because of the super tall front tires it rubs like a mothaf***a, but i have camber plates waiting for me to instal as soon as i get back from the UK in 3 weeks time.

and unfortunately i couldn't get them on before i went to streets. i tried to put them on and without shorter front springs and camber plates it wouldn't of been very drivable on the track.
im signed up for streets again on the 12 of august so we'll see then

i got them from alekshop. they're pretty hard to find because you have to be a bbs motorsport dealer to sell them. the only shops in CA that i know of that are motorsport dealers are alekshop and GMG

How the car even rolled in neutral on those specs is amazing. What were you thinking? Front wheel spec is not going to fit at all without ghetto camber.

IMO those wheels are ridiculous on a non-M 3 series. But kudos for showing nicely on the photo gallery thread.

Red center caps. We are wheel twins and I have the red caps to match the red lettering on the rim

nah, i only need to dial in a extra degree or two at most of camber and it will be good; its really close to clearing right now it just gets caught up on the bracket connecting the front bumper and front quarter panels when i get over bumps. hopefully unless you know what you looking at you wont even be able to really tell that i'm running extra camber. And thanks, definitely not the easiest wheels to deal with on a non m... new springs, camber plates, custom wheel hub adapters, no tpms.. turned out to be much more expensive wheels then i originally thought lol.

thanks man! the tire heights are 40/30 respectively, im fixing the ratio soon will be 35/30. just a temporary make due and mend thing to get the wheels on.

good to meet someone that shares the beauty of the gt4s. im leaning toward red center caps to set it off with the lettering. my only thoughts behind doing something else would be to go polished because im wrapping my mirrors brushed aluminum (gonna see how it looks, i think it'll look sick because i really like offset mirror caps like on the gt3 and s4) so the caps would fit in better.
