I have ran 12's on the front and there is still room to go. Depending on year, you can probably go more on the rear too.

Thanks for the info but yes I believe you're correct about it being dependent on year.

Do you have any pics of when you did 12mm up front? Was it a pre or post LCI e90??

I'm assuming it's post if it is the same car in your sig. What style wheels were you running at that time too? If post LCI style 189s then id like to try 12mm up front an 15mm in the rear.

Pre or post LCI for fronts are the same, IIRC. The rear tracks are different by 8mm.

wider or skinnier? that is if wider, 12mm on the lci would produce the same result as 20mm on the pre-lci... correct?
