CCW's Final Decision

Im pulling the trigger on CCWs.

Lowered on KW V1's they are almost as low as they can go. I initially wanted to not roll my fenders however I decided that is ok with me.

I would like to run something aggressive (not too aggressive that I need -4 degrees of camber). The car is finished for what suspension it has done and the camber I am running.

If I have to stretch a rear tire that is OK with me (some people hate the idea it doesnt effect me as I will not track my car).

Questions I have:
-With LCI can i run a 9" wide in the front? If so what offset?
-If i run 8.5" in front instead 9" what offset would you recomend? I was thining +30?
-The rears! I would like to run something that will have a lip. As I said before if I need to roll I do not want to pull or shave
-I was thinking for 9.5" +30 or 10" +32/33

I am decided on the 18's LM20's.

I AM LCI however. Anyone have pics of LCI with theyre offsets too please!

First few examples of CCW's

I know most of these are Pre-lci, but front is the same and rear offset is 8mm higher than pre-lci. Like if the pre-lci has 18x11 et25 and you would want your wheels at Lci to extend to same point it would be 18x11 et33.

http://www.7machine.com/bmw/91873.html

I would suggest front something like this
Front
18x9 et20-30 with 215/40/18-225/40/18
18x9.5 et25-30 with 225/40/18-235/40/18

Rear
18x10 et 30 265/35/18
18x10.5 et30-35 255-265/35/18
18x11 et 35-40 265/35/18

Those links above have similar specs that i suggested.

Since you don't really want too aggressive how about
18x9 et25 with 225/40/18 and 18x10.5 et30 with 255/35/18 or 265/35/18

This one has that size at front

Fender roll is definitely needed to rear and i would forget those 8.5 front and 10 in the rear.

By the way here is picture of my future setup 18x10.5 with 255/35/18. Left one is 225/40/18 on 18x9.5

I think 18x9.5 et30 up front with a 235/40/18 and a 18x11et38 with a 265/35/18 would look good. All you should need is a roll in the rear.

Rear im locked at 18x10.5 +32 (255/35)

Front i have seen both 18x9 +25.... and 18x9 +35... The +35 seems like I would have strut issues...

Both will fit. I would do et25 with a 225/40/18.

Both fronts will fit, but i would choose the 18x9 et25 with 225/40/18 tyre. It matches the rear better.

Rear is fine with proper fender roll and camber. I have 18x10.5 et15 with 255/35/18 at rear of my E90 pre-lci. It rubs on bigger bumps and faster cornering. I need more fender modifications.

I don't know which one to choose, it's your call. Can't go wrong either of them. LM20 would be more uncommon, than Classics. I would probably choose LM20.

I'm on KW V1s at I believe -1.8 camber. I don't have camber plates. 10.5 +32 with a 255 and a fender roll will work right?

It should work with proper fender roll and you don't need camber plates to rear. Rears stock adjustment can get you somewhere close to -3 degrees. Your 10.5 et32 is the same as 10.5 et24 would be on my pre-lci.

I now have 10.5 et15 which is 9mm more out than your setup and my fenders are rolled, camber is around -3, It rubs bigger bumps and hard cornering. I'm going to add Fk bumpstops and maybe some fender modifications, if still needed. Maybe even raise it little bit.

When you were at 10.5 et 24 what were you at for camber?


99% sure im going to run 18x9s +25 18x10.5 +32 . Cross your fingers it works on my setup!

My bad i wrote it wrong. I never had 10.5 et24 on my car. I meant generally on pre-lci's. Go for it. It will work. Even i wasn't 100% sure that my current setup will work, when i bought those.
