Here is my contribution to this thread. Looking forward to hearing everyone's comments. Good or bad.

Edit: Please pardon the lug nuts. Still waiting on my Project Kics 40 neochrome lug nuts. Apparently, they are on back order for 6-8 weeks. Then I can put +10mm spacers all around.

Looking for fitment advice:

I currently have 18x9.5" ET22 and 18x10.5" ET22 TE37 wtih 275/35/18 square. I have the opportunity to trade my fronts for a pair of 18x10.5" ET22 to make a 18x10.5" square setup for the track. Will this fit fine in the front with 275/35/18 or 285/35/18 tires?

BTW I have camber set to -3.2 in the front and JRZ RS1 suspension with Eibach springs, helper springs have been removed. Any advice would be appreciated.

Here's how she sits now on the staggered setup:

I have seen it done with OEM suspension. Why don't you put your rear wheels onto the front and find out? You already have wheels and tires in the exact size you are asking about.... Nobody is better equipped to test them than you. Please report back once you find out.

I was just hoping someone had already tried this. I am planning to test it out and I'll let you guys know

Rigid Tune lookin' hawt!

What offset options were available to you for 9.5 and 10.5? Was the next lower offset going to be too aggressive?

I'm not saying yours isn't aggressive. Just curious as to what's being offered.

Get those RT's out of this thread! JK They look sick in red, nice choice. Do the RT's allow for center caps?

Do you have more pics of the E92 on Mag Blue SL's??

Thanks people,

Lets see about your questions,

As for offset options its pretty limited for the RT. Not many 5x120 fits, mostly Japanese fitments. et 21 was the lowest I saw.

As for color the RT only come in one color "Burning Red" its a unique color more of a Blood Red.

No center caps offered by Rays, not sure if the IND kit would work.

The wheels are a bit different than the SL version I have on my Z4M. They have a anti-slip knurling to keep the tire in check, also they are 6% stiffer and designed for aggressive track use. The barrel profile is slightly tweaked which gives the extra stiffness. No decals, Volk is engraved in the spoke.

As for pics of the of the other m3 with Mag Blue SLs, I don't have any but Autocouture Motoring should have on their Facebook Page.

I really wanted a set of TE37 ultra in Matt Blue but they only come in 20" and I DD the E90.

Wonder if any other e9x are running these...

I could be wrong, but I thought RT's only came in Burning Red? If so, then yes. This black wheel is a rep
