I'm not hating. This is very interesting. I know this can be done with modifications to fenders and suspension and "correct" size tyres, but this more for the real stance people. All i can do is give you some examples in fact there are quite few of them and every single one looks really good.

The wheels have the wrong bolt pattern. You'll need to redrill or use adapters.

Just don't ruin your fenders like Iranman, but i think he got those fixed.

A lot of the stance guys here are not willing to help because they think they're so cool and unique for running 10 and 12 wheels. Well, I've learned a lot over the years so I'll give you a quick rundown. If you're going 10 and 12, you'll need to be prepared for some things.

First, you may destroy your fenders, particularly if your suspension isn't set up correctly. That's just a risk you will have to live with if you want the stance. You'll probably want to make sure your suspension is solid before you order wide wheels.

Second, you will need to stretch your tires. Probably something like a 265/30 or 275/30 and a 225/35. Most tire shops won't do it, and a lot of the shops that will do it don't know how to do it correctly. You'll have to look around and find the best place in your area that won't ruin the bead on your tire.

Third, you may need some supporting mods. Depending on how far you lower it, you may need toe arms in the rear to correct your toe. You could also run into an issue with clearance. You'll need camber plates in the front for sure, and may or may not need camber arms in the rear depending on how much you rolled/pulled your fenders. You may need to just cut your fenders completely. That's what most people do.

That's all I can think of for now. Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions. I've been helped a lot on this forum so I like to pay it forward.

thank you soss much guys for all the time and afford u guy put in for me ..u guys
I messaged stancede90335 and he said i am going to need a fender rolled and pulled (which i have done to the max) a lot of camber and crazy stretch. tomorrow i will call one of the shop who carries Rota around where i live and hopefully get to pick them up in couple days when i finish my final.

i have a kw installed so i will need a camber plates and the right shop who can do the perfect fitment. even though i have done all the job myself till now but by looking at how wide the wheels are, i am sure going to need help from pros.

yes i will have to redrill the bolt pattern to 5x120. i heard memory fab do this kind of job.

Hey man first off car looks awesome, i dont have vast experience with 18s on the e9x platform because i normally run 19s but here is what i can tell you.

You are going to need your rears rolled AND pulled and you are going to want to remove your front bumper-fender metal clips, you are also going to need to have if not already some camber plates and adjustable toe arms because you will need to play around with camber at the very least. Personally i would run something like a 225/35 on the front and a 265/30 on the rear 215/35f and 255/30r if you can get away with that type of stretch, running those specs on 18s and on e90s is more achievable then running then on e92s with 19s which has been done around here so you should be able to accomplish it. Look for a competent shop with someone who knows his stance or you will have a sucky time at the shop. Even f you do end up going with alot of negative camber make sure when they give you the numbers of the aligment everything at least seems even between left and right sides.

looking foward to see your setup!
