Got some new kicks for the Bimmer!!!!!

Installed some BBS RS-GTs on my ride. Specs are 18 x 8.5 ET 38 and 18 x 9 ET 45. Big thanks to forum member e30lyf for a good deal. Dropping it on some H&R Sports and Koni Yellows this week to get rid of that wheel gap You guys think I need some spacers in the rear for more flush fitment? What size(mm) do you recommend. Thanks for viewing.

Great wheels. I'd try 15mm in the rear, making it ET30.

Thanks for all of the kind comments. I will try out that 15mm spacers setup. I'll update this thread in like 2 weeks when I drop it.

Update...so it took me a while to get my all of the parts to lower my ride but finally my Koni yellows came in yesterday evening. So I'm going to install Koni yellow shocks, H&R sport springs, front Hotckis sway bar w/endlinks, and MS 15mm rear spacers next week. The shop has a good alignment/corner scaling machine to aligned after lowering. Is there anything else I need to adjust when lowering my ride? Heard of something to adjust with the toe? To turn the toe all the way out? So the inner walls on my tires don't have excessive wear.

Yes Sir!!! Slammed on the equipment mentioned above in the 1st post. Big thanks to Will and Performance Race Solutions (PRS) out in Sanford, Fl. Installed everything in a 24 hour period with inhouse alignment machine w/corner balancing. Enjoying the suspension upgrade over OEM sport suspension with no body squat on launch. Corners so much better with less body roll. Still a little wheel gap, but springs will settle and drop more.
