That rear is super aggressive. Are you going to run stretch?

I think you should run more aggressive front offsets to match that rear. You can, too. In your pics, the rears are already reverse-mounted, but fronts are not, so it's easy to make your fronts more aggressive by reverse mounting the faces. IIRC, reverse mounting an LM face gives about 6mm, so you'd be at a +19. Will better match the poke you may have in the rear.

yeah that sounds about right. I had 10mm in my mind. 12mm would be better actually. 19x10 +13 would give you a slight poke to match the rear. I'm running a x10 +20 and I'm flush, so I think the +13 would complement the rear, cuz that rear is really aggressive

I'm running P Zero Nero's. They have rounded sidewalls. You're going to need to find a rounded sidewall for that rear.

I still think you should make the front more aggressive to match the rear. Rear's gonna poke, and front is not quite flush. What look are you going for?

I used to run stretch on my benz and liked the Toyo T1R's as tires. Check em out

Looks like Floss isn't done yet. See how the rears aren't assembled yet? Looks like a progress pic

Uhh.. My pants just grew tighter from seeing that super aggressive rear...









I also agree with tbone28 that the fronts will look more sunk in than their offsets suggest since they are matched with the 11.5 ET21 rears!

Beautiful. CPWINCH did indeed call it--I remember his suggestion from that prior thread.

LMs are so amazing. I had them on my E60 M5, and now chris s is sporting my set on his white E92 M3.

I'm assuming "reverse mounting" the faces just means reassembling the wheel so that the wheel face is now sandwiched between the inner and outer rim halves instead of the wheel face being mounted to the outside of the outer rim half. So offset becomes more aggressive by going inner rim half/wheel face/outer rim half instead of inner half/outer half/wheel face. Does doing this in any way negatively affect the wheel's strength or integrity by changing the load distribution from the original design?
