Stoptech BBK vs stock wheels

I am getting it installed tomorrow. I need to know if it will fit style 189 wheels without modifications. It is the Stoptech 355 / 345 kit for the e92 335i.

Thanks.

In theory, it should fit! I will let you know in a couple hours as I will be installing mines too with the 189 wheels.

Thank you so much! Please do!
I'm afraid it will need spacers or something. I have a buyer for my stock brakes and cannot wait anymore time.

There's not much you can do other than wash it regularly. A wire brush can tape those off no problem though.

A little rust won't kill it! I'm going to clean them off this weekend

They're fine! It has a good 3mm before it'll hit those weights
