I want to get an aggressive look, so I think I will go with matte black. In regards to rear width I was thinking 10" or 11". I'm not a big fan of a very stretched tire, so I guess I would like a nice flush look with minimum poke. I probably will not be purchasing coilovers as I don't have enough money :P, therefore I would most likely use H&R sport springs at the most if anything. My car is almost FBO (just need a fmic, not getting a performance exhaust) with a BMS meth, thus I would want a rim and tire setup that has performance as a priority, while still being very flush! Can you recommend me an offset and tire size to achieve these goals?

A picture of some setups that looks nice would also help! :P

Those pics ad you are all over the place it sounds like you want poke but give some weak specs that you asking about. You will need fender mods if you want poke I recommend you cut the fender lips because a roll will not give you enough clearance and also you will need to add camber in the rear. I also suggest getting camber plates for the front as you have plastic fenders on the coupe and cannot roll them. You need to do you home work befor you jump into something aggressive because you can do a lot of damge if you don't know what your doing

I have been doing my homework and know about all those dimensions. Ignore the specs that vmr suggested me as I said that I am debating between 19x10 or 19x11 in the rear and a fender roll/trim. I was thinking of having a little poke, but not a lot. Also I do not want to do any negative or positive camber adjustments, or have very stretched out tires.

Well 19x10 is small and very commen I would say 19x11 et28-30 would be perfect for you IMO. Not to much but just a bit to give it a aggressive stance, you would be fine with a 265 tire. As for the front maybe 9.5 somewhere around there would be a good start if you do not want to add camber or bit of a stretch you will have problems getting some poke or aggressive rim up front
Heres some pics of mine with a 10 front and 11.5 rear. Tires are 245/35 front and 285/30 rear camber is 1.3 front and 2.2 rear



If you have anymore questions let me know

Your setup looks nice, but im sure you have coilovers and your car is dropped. I have bmw sport suspension and might get h&r sport springs. What is the largest I can put in the front without any camber? I want to keep in mind that performance is the first priority (ie traction and handling). Also how much rubbing will I get even with a fender trim.

So I searched around the forums and found this diagram showing the different stance options. I realized I wasn't being very specific before so I wanted to let everyone know what look I'm trying to obtain.

Name:  stance options.jpg
Views: 536
Size:  94.7 KB

To clarify what look im going for according to this diagram:
- I want the "Dropped- Aftermarket Springs"
- and the "Flush" look with a little bit of poke.


If I will be going for 19x11 rears, what offset and tire size can I achieve this with? and what setup do I need in the front?

Thanks for reading!

It is a very minor stretch on a 10 and on the 11 it is a noticible stretch. On my 11.5 rear I had a 285 which still had some stretch as you can see in the pic and the front was a 10 with a 245 on it which was a perfect stretch IMO. Not to much not to little.

Your stance is on an e90, I have an e92 with plastic front fenders. How does that alter my setup for the front. Also can you tell me what are the downsides to having negative camber in terms of performance? Also how is negative camber added? Is there an additional part I must buy? and if I'm just using H&R sport springs is a fender roll and negative camber still required?

Our front is easy to deal with don't even worry about it. As he mentioned it's the rear that's the Biatch. Rolling fenders is useless you're gonna have to cut it like he did on his. You mentioned that you don't want stretch, but all the pics you posted with nice stance had a bit of a stretch. You're gonna have to run a minor stretch if you wanna ride low and be flush.

Daily driving you won't even know the camber has been adjusted, when you do your alignment after the springs just have them set the camber how you want it.

Oh yeah, if you want to poke, you're gonna have to stretch, camber and cut/roll.

Getting the stance down right requires a bit of commitment, but it's worth it in the end if you pull it off right.

Yea I gathered a bunch of information and think I know what I want to do. gonna go with the 19x11 et 28-30 with 265/30 tires like project335i recommended me. I would like a little bit of stretch and poke, also decided to add the negative camber. Just want to get it right the first time and make it look awesome ! For the fender trimming I'm going to wait for the summer and get it all done at once. Your still down to head to my family friends shop and do it together right lol? I got a lift and all the tools just need someone who's a good DIY guy (ie you )

LCI or PRE LCI??

TRhe front either way is not aggressive in my books, you see my pics and poke I am on a 10" in front and et around 15 so your 10" with et35 is to high of an offset and the rear 11 is to aggressive especially considering the weak front specs

Have ever run aggressive fitment, you will rub for sure with those specs just an FYI, and I would go et 20ish for the front 10" rim.

Still never said if it's going on Pre LCI or LCI E90?
