The barrel is tight on the 380mm kit, but my rep at Race Technologies says that the clearance is within their guidelines.

A square setup would be ideal to all rotation of the tires and maximizing tire use. The popular square Volk setup on the E46 M3 was 18x9.5" all around with 275/40-18s and a 10mm spacer in the rear. I think the offset was 30mm. Send me a PM if you'd like me to check on availability for you.

I can't imagine a better set-up for an e9x m3. Offsets and widths are basically perfect. I challenge anyone to come up with a better one.

What tires are mounted on these perfect wheels?
