I know i was just stating that people have run more agressive wheels on the front, these sizes shouldn't be a problem the problem is the SDC clearing the caliper which is what we are still waiting to see pictures of.

I really hope people who are considering this option Know what they are getting into and have done enough research to know that you will have to run stretched tires and rolled fenders and probibly add negitive camber as well.

A deep will work, but you have to stick with a 235 tire so you have to want the stretch and poke look.
The fronts don't need a spacer.

Sorry guys, I came down with a very bad fever and have been in bed for a few days now. Just checked my email and saw all these posts on this thread. I just want everyone to know that the front calipers clear no problems and there is no spacer required. In fact you could probably fit an even lower offset, or a 10" in the front without any issues. I will try to take some quick iphone pics an post them. In regards to customer service from forgestar, lets just say that I received no assistance from them at all in resolving my problem. Sonic Tuning on the other hand was awesome in replying to my emails.

e92 BMW 335i  [4.35]
I saw the setup in person on Friday, it definitely will not disappoint any of you, it looks AMAZING!

It also was not even close to having fitment issues, as he mentioned in the previous post it cleared the caliper easily. I could stick my finger between the caliper and the wheel and wiggle my finger around so there's a ton of space.

In the initial post the OP says he's going to be lowered on H&R sport springs and is prepared to do some trimming to the rear fender. I would imagine that some additional (read: more than stock) camber will be needed in the rear and might require camber plates but the front seems like it should be fine.

There are plenty of people who have ran 265/30/19 in the rear without having to do any fender mods, so the rear fender might be okay.

Pending photos, I might go wider in the rear than I had initially planned (was personally considering running 19x10 rear)

Nevermind. This thread would indicate that the OP had the fenders trimmed. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=835342

Cool. Without fender work, how wide would you say you could go (Wheel and Tire size) with a drop similar to OP in the rear? what would be the optimal offset? Not a fan of the stance look. Well actually i am. Just not practical for my driving style. I prefer a nice tucked in look with a drop.

I haven't had anytime to get proper pictures takes as I am super busy and came down with a very bad fever recently, but since I know a lot of people have been asking for pictures here are some shots I took with my iPhone as I was initially installing the wheels.

Also I would like to add that I am dropped on BC Racing coilovers and will also be lowering the front some more as soon as my m3 sideskirts and aero front lip are ready to be installed

Glad to see this worked out so well. I can't wait to see it with the extra drop and see some non-iPhone photos (or some photos in the sunlight).

The front looks a little high... like nearly stock ride height. Am I wrong or would you say it's comparable to stock height? My e92 on H&R sports looks lower at the moment (might just be the photos)

Its lower than stock ride height and has -2 camber as well. Its just the photo that makes it look higher because I took it on an angle, but there is no room to fit your fingers in between, but i will be lowering it to tuck some of the tire for sure. Also it looks like I could fit an even lower offset in the front without any problems, they do not rub at all and are 100% functional. The rears however do rub on large bumps/dips, but I will be adding some FK Bumpstops to help it out a little bit.

Also there are two different pictures of the front ride height, if you look at the 3rd photo the height is lower than the other one because I got my alignment done there and dropped it another 1/2 inch.

I must have glazed past that photo.

How do you like the BC coils? I've been considering getting some but have heard mixed reviews about them. I was looking at getting the Extreme Drop variants from Flushstance.
