Agressive fitment Pic thread :happyanim:

ok guys! i saw a thread in similar vein in the m3 section.... so I'm shamelessly stealing the idea.... So lets post up our aggressive z4 fitment wheels...

ill start, heres my z4m running oem 18" 260m wheels, ET23 9.5" ET29 8.5".

The rear is about all I'm fitting with the semi slick, and its pretty much flush with the fender, the front... Lots of camber needed to tuck in the ET29, At the track and on maximum attack i can JUST brush the plastic fender liner where it meats the bumper, but its literally a brush, not to rub through but enough to "rough" the plastic finish alittle.

Apex arc-8s with bc br coilovers.
Toyo proxes r888s, 255/35 and 275/30. Wheels are 18x9.5 et 35 and 18x10 et 25.

I fitted my rears up front and to my surprise, they fit! Granted I was tuning maybe 3 degrees of negative camber. I wish I could fit larger wheels in the back, especially for a supercharged car.

The rear rubbed at first, so I had to adjust the dampening from 3 to 10. I have slowly been bringing it back down to a happy medium. The fronts are fine with 2.5 degrees of camber though

Bringin up your damping is going to help your rubbing except in high compression scenarios (like in a turn and hit a bump). Wondering what kind of spring rate you are running in the rear? Looks great!

I have the same setup as you.

Here's my TE-37s. Don't listen to Beedub everybody; he's just a cranky Englishman! They fit 18x9.5 +35 w/ 10mm spacer (effective +25ET) and 18x10.5 +22. 245/40/18 and 275/35/18. These are probably sold as of this week, so will be slapping my CCWs back on with 255/35/18 and 285/35/18 Michelin PSS. Anyone have experience running those sizes??

ONTO THE PICS!

car looks awesome!!

and I'm from the Caribbean ;-)

the pss run wider anyway so be careful running that 285, however as you don't do any track work they may be fine!!

BTW my front 18x8.5 et 29 rubs with -2.7 deg camber, albeit the lightest of light brush and not enough to rub through fender liner, you will never convince me that front/rear doesn't rub when the car is used how it should be used.
