New wheels: ARC-8

Received my wheels from crfine88 today and put them on for a few pics:

They fit perfect and on the one corner I took, seem quite sticky.

Specs are:
18x9.5 et35 front 255/35/18 Hankook RS3
18x10 et25 rear 275/35/18 Hankook RS3

Thanks for looking!

They actually look good. Your car looks good.

Front grills need to be all blacked out IMO, other than that your car is perfect. Ohh and you need the Dans black decals to cover up the orange.

I'm running H&R coilovers all the way down. I'll raise it back up a bit for the next autox. Wheel and tire specs are listed above.

Same setup we have on our 3335is coupe for autocross/track, ARC-8 wheels, 18x8.5 with Hankook Ventus R-S3 255/35ZR18 all around. Great, lightweight, relatively inexpensive wheels, sticky tires, although with six autocrosses and a two-day track session, both of us driving each event so double that, they only lasted six months. New tires are on order.

Never understood why folks wouldn't just start their own thread

OP - looks good man! If I could get away that low I'd set my suspension at that height!

Camber is at about -2.5 degrees up front (don't remember the rear settings) with only pins pulled. No camber plates now, but soon...

Here's a so so side shot:

Nice work. The all black look really sets of the light interior. Black grilles and painted markers would really finish it off

Get Dan's Decals for the markers, they are still reflective and you can always take them back off later.

I just put them on my car to finish off my look.

Fixed - It is Dan's.
