Haha thanks man. I know a lot of you don't like it but everyone has different taste on how they want their car to look. Mine is still a project. I still have a long way to go. But if you guys have an Instagram follow my built and to see more pictures! Name: jc___10

Not really aggressive compared to a lot of the stuff in this thread but here's mine.

F: 245/40/18x9 ET42
R: 275/35/18x10 ET25

Tires are BFGoodrich Rival which, like many others of the "Extreme Summer" category, run wide compared to other categories.

Stock suspension. Zero rubbing even at Autocross.

My issue right now is that I cannot fit camber washers up front because the tire will rub on the strut. So I would need camber plates, or spacers+washers to increase negative camber in front.

-2.5* or more of camber in the front. Coilovers won't matter because the wheel is low enough offset that it will clear everything available for our cars on the inner side (strut).



Further to this, the real key is here the 265/35/18 tire. The 35 aspect ratio is short enough that it fits. 245/40/18 is technically "correct" but it does *not* fit properly because it's too tall. Run a 245/255/265 in 35 aspect ratio, and you're fine.

Sorry to butt in on EAS's thread, but that car with both those setups looks great! Keep up the good work!

Proof that 18's are perfect for these cars. Best mix of aesthetics and practicality.

oh it fits i never said it didn't, ..... but what work needs to be done to GET them to fit with the correct size tyre for the rim ( if thats even possible on this platform in terms of the rear 10.5") , why are you finding that so hard to comprehend??? I've owned this car from NEW, and trailed many different wheel sizes on it, even with my current m3 v8 wheels their is literally no space left.

from what i see, without significant fender work, stretched tyres, these aggressive offset rims don't work when the car is used as it supposed to be . like i say, post me up a detailed pic of all four of your fender liners please??

For all we know for track work EAS swap to a more conventional offset, hold your horses until they post...

you only have to read numerous posts from APEX fitment threads to know what will and won't work and what NEEDs work to work correctly.

to be honest nekky if you think a 10.5" with a 275 is ideal then that in itself says its all, a 265-275 is a 9.5" ideal width for the tyre to be properly seated. What I'm saying is their are imo serious compromises when stuffing such rims on the z4m platform and i just want people to understand those compromises WHEN using the car as the ///M division saw fit, cursing like a granny I'm guessing you can stuff more in their with extreme camber and stretched tyres.

Im definitely not bashing people who choose such sizes just trying let people know their are compromises to such setups.

Ok, now I just have to ask...
With all these wide tires in front on these cars above, is there any difference between a Z4M and a 3.0si? I know the rear is different, but could I manage these front setups on my 3.0si?

The reason why I ask is that on my Coupe it rubs with 235/35-19 on 8,5" ET34 if I dont have a lot of negative camber....

So in theory I will be able to have 8,5" ET20 in the front with 225/35 without issues?

If so I will be a happy camper look into getting hold of a set of Apex ARC-8 with Profile 3 both in front and rear.


I guess I need to borrow some 15mm spacers and try with my current wheels at first....

how are you finding it in terms of rub etc?? or is this more of a cruise show setup?? remove the spacer for attack mode?

I'd roll your fenders to be safe. I ran 19x8.5 et15 with a 215/35 and I couldn't air all the way down until I rolled my fenders.

3002, probably one of my favourite setups on the z4 i have seen.... looks perfect to me and with those thick sidewalls you could REALLY up damper rates etc...

I actually have increased rates. Went from 450f/550r to 550f/650r + H&R front sway bar set at full stiff.

doesn't take much for that to happen on the z4 to be honest... mine isn't however...

im guessing you've experienced the same on your GFs Red z4m, your offsets were way WAY to aggressive.... ET13 on the z4 front is bordering insanity, it was never going to work, its not just alittle over the line either... did you guys do no research??

Lol trust me mate I do plenty of research. I do this for a living.

I'm just seeing if people have tried flipping the mounting around. Fitting it on the inside.

I barely touches. It's just a scrub on full lock. Just seeing if you guys have looked into a way around it before I start playing around with it

Thanks for the nice condescending reply though.
