I am dzlmoose but in June. I could get it right now but have other things on the go as well.

I plan on putting on my camber plates, LSD and differential bushings at that time.

So I assume if you wanted to run square you would run 225/40-18 all around. I missed it, are you running 8.5 width?

Factory 8.5 rears.

I run summers all year. Drive the car 1, maybe 2x a week in the winter. Althought the past few weeks more, mild here.

Drive a jeep wrangler jk in the winter a lot. Starting to consider selling it, resale is crazy. Not comfy anymore.

It depends really on personal preference I suppose. I love the wider stance for the rear.

I just had the same ones mounted to my D - a bit unsure of where I should set cold air pressure to (I doubt the posted psi apply anymore since they were for the RFTs).

I asked the installers to do 36 front and 38 rear but not sure if that is where I should be at.

Any thoughts out there?

Oops, just saw this. Hopefully by EOM.

I'm running 235/265r19, but I would prefer moving toward a less staggered fit with PSSs in the future. for now, I was just trying to play it safe with rounded sidewalls as the offsets (ESP. The rear) are pretty aggressive.

Have yours on yet?

I took mine off in October in place of my winters. I'll be putting them back on next month. I went with 18" size.

Changing out the base dampers to Bilstein B6s (decided to go this route as I was looking for a little tightening up) adding JBD and plan on keeping it a conservative 40-50%. Mild improvements on a great car.

BTW Tischer has it for $335 ->http://www.getbmwparts.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462
