Getting settled in

Finally installed my suspension...still getting everything dialed in.

Here's some pictures!

Apex Specs:

18x9.5 et22 245/40
18x10 et25 285/35









and threw my 18" BBS Rs on there for now

Nice, so no fittment issues running the +22 offset upfront? Could you not fit wider rubber or just chose to run 245's...thing 265/285 would be the ticket!

Seems most people run the 35 offset instead... for one reason or another.

Car looks lovely.

Yeah thats E92 M3 fitment and I never ran it on my Z4MC it would stick out to far unless my camber was adjusted and ran smaller tires up front.

A couple folks run that aggressive fitment. +35 with a 8.5 is more acceptable for the Z4 up front.

No fitment issues, I would have ran 265/35 but the 245/40's were already on the wheels from when I had my m3.

I am running -3 camber up front, they would poke a little otherwise.

What tires? Trying to figure out if 285/35-18 PSS will fit the 35 offset without issue.

For the rear? You will need to run a spacer to clear the strut side of fender well if so.

Those tires fit large. That size equal most 295 series tires.

Huh. I noticed that the tread width is considerably smaller than my Starspec, so I thought 285's would work. Finnegan told me the the shoulders are very rounded, as well. Maybe, I will post to see what size PSS's have been run with a 35 offset.

my tread width on my 265 pss is over 1/2" wider than my 275 hankook v12 were. i would advise shopping by specs rather than size
