Current set up:

Volshlag CP Front -1.9, Rear -1.4
Wheels: TE37SL 18x9.5 ET15 & 18x 10.5 ET22
Tires: Yokohama AD08 265/35/18 & 295/30/18
KW V3: Don't know the settings but ride height is about 25 1/2" to 25 3/4" to center of fender.

No Rubbing issues now. Previous shop had my ride height around 25 - 25 1/4" and it did rub. Fronts had less than a finger gap and the rears were tucked under the fender. Not what I wanted so I went to another shop and had it reset for performance, not looks...

I hope this helps.

hey guys, I'm looking of some advice on how to run my setup

I got a set of TE37's from my previous non-M but these were quite aggressive on my original car so I am wondering if they will work on a Mcar

The specs are
18x9.5 +28 I assume this will be for the front, and will these work with 265/35/18?
18x9.5 +22 currently have 265/35/18 PSS on them

So what I was thinking is:
1) run square setup of 265/35/18 on all
2) to put the 265/35/18 tires on the front and use 285/35/18 but will the 285 width be too wide for 9.5" rims?

Also, will I need spacers to prevent rubbing on the suspension struct?

I am currently on stock ZCP ride height which I think is 10mm lower then reg M3. I am not looking for the stretch and poke look but something that is optimized for this car to decrease unsprung weight and increase rear traction.

My goal is to have the best setup for daily and I can use it for track as well. Advice from you guys will be greatly appreciated as I am very new to Mcars and very excited to bring it to my first track day when spring/summer comes.

The vendor doesn't exist anymore, WheelSTO. I run PSS in 265/30 front and 295/30 rears. The rears rub and I want to downsize to 285 rears however Michelin doesn't make them in that size. The PSS are an inch wider than the Hankook's I used to have both were 295.

Hmm... I am not quite sure. I haven't really looked. These wheels/tires are actually not mine. I just have it on my car for now while my wheels are getting powdercoated. I got the lip from a supplier in China. It seems to be holding up like a champ from all the slopes and hills around here I have been scrapping.

Does anyone here also have the new ET21 19x9.5 front TE37SLs? I knew these were new over a year ago but I haven't seen anyone else running this offset.

I could not be happier with my decision to go with the Diamond Black vs the Matte or Gloss Black. I had totally forgotten that when viewed in person, the diamond black is infact more like a dark graphite metallic finish, not pure or jet black. I would not have been happy with gloss or matte black because they almost look jet black and I don't like wheels that are so black that they merge and get lost in the tire. The diamond black with it's dark graphite finish is perfect Only have the pictures of the wheels for now. Plan to install them this summer and will post pictures then.

Thanks to Vivid Racing for awesome customer service and really quick same day shipping
