HELP: BMW 359m GTS and KW V3

Hello All-

On Friday I picked up a set of M3 GTS 19x9in 235 front and 19x10in 265 rear. I noticed on the ride home with the older winter setup the weight in the trunk would make these rub here and there. When these were taken out no rubbing unless I hit a big dip. Currently installed is an M3 Rear sway and KW V3 are going on next week.

1st question will the KW V3 help with rubbing/eliminate it?

2nd question will adding negative camber help or be good idea/take away from what makes the ultimate drive machine an UDM?

3rd My fenders already looked rolled from the factory, is that true? Can they still be rolled further?

4th Would it be better to just sell the rears 19x10 and buy x2 19x9 running a square set up but still use the 265 tires on them? would that count as a stag set up?

Lastly I have one other problem. When doing speeds of 100+ and then braking,I almost feel that the car is shaking/not stop as well as it did before. The rotors have a slight lip, I think, but wouldn't BMW change these under my maint program already?

1. Would new OEM rotors solve this?

2. Are the wheel too big/too much wieght?

3. Would a BBK fit this/Is it recommended wit 19s?

The cars description is in my signature with all modifications up to date. Thank you every body!


I will post pictures soon.

1. If the coilovers have camber plates, adding more negative camber can help eliminate any rubbing that you have up front.

2. No, not at all. Our cars actually perform better with more negative camber. I believe the stock camber is -.3 degrees. You can safely go to -2 (maybe even a little bit more)degrees without having to worry about excessive tire wear, all while drastically improving the turn-in of the car in the corners.

3. It's doubtful that they are already rolled unless you bought your car used and the previous owner had them rolled. Rolling your fenders is a good option if you need some extra clearance for your wheels and tires.
