Mine's a Z4M coupe with stoptech 6/4 BBK and H&R coilovers. Can a staggered setup of 18x9.5 et35 / 18x10 et25 clear the calipers?

Thanks for the post! The 18x9.5" ET35 ARC-8 will clear the 6-piston 355mm kit with a 5mm spacer up front. We haven't confirmed fitment on the 380mm kit, but we are happy to test it if you can provide a brake template.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. Mine is the 380mm kit. What does a brake template look like, and how do I get one?

Do you know of any ARC-8 specifications that will definitely clear my bbk? Perhaps in 19", which is the size I'm currently running on.

Brake templates are paper cutouts provided by the brake kit manufacturer and are used for test-fitting purposes. They can typically be found on your kit's product page on the manufacturer's website.

The 19" will require the same spacer, since the clearance issue is with the spokes, rather than the barrel.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any additional questions!

It sure is! That kit will clear the following ARC-8 sizes:

18x9.5" ET22
18x10" ET25
18x10.5" ET27
All 19" sizes

The 18x9.5" ET35 ARC-8 would require at least a 12mm spacer to clear, making it an effective ET23, in which case you would just use the 18x9.5" ET22.

Our 18x9.5" ET35 EC-7 wheel will clear the 6-piston 380mm StopTech kit with no issues, however.

Still recommend the following for stock fitments? (Concave F&R)

18" Staggered:
F: 18x8.5" ET38 (Profile 1) - 235/40-18
R: 18x9.5 et22 (Profile 3) - 265/35-18 or 275/35-18

Any experience fitting these over bilstein B12 setups - that's bilstein dampers paired w/ Eibach prokits.
Edit - I'm talking "stock fitment" being no camber plates, spacers, etc.

Cheers!

Thanks for the post! That is indeed our recommend "OEM+" fitment for the Z4M. No spacers or additional modifications will be required with the B12 suspension.

Perfect - cheers!

For Canadian orders - should I order through ApexRaceParts.com, or do you have a Canadian dealer that you can recommend that carries inventory?

winnipegz4M,

Thank you for reaching out, we do not have any stocking dealers in Canada at this time. We would recommend purchasing directly through our website. Feel free to PM us if you have any additional questions!

Best,
