The lowest I have seen with the 19x10 ET20 (265/30) fronts is M3E92 over in Switzerland... Noiceeee

Mines lowered all the way on Ground control, NEVER EVER rubs.

I could lower it more, or do a 5mm spacer easily.

Yes, faces were removed and P/C'd a satin charcoal (HRE color). Front lips were installed to 98mm (hence the 10") Limited Edition red Work caps too.

Yea I know but I'm trying to avoid spacers.. I don't want any spacers. So I would have to do a smaller tire no ?
