I actually took the original photos of the car with them on backwards by accident. Is there any supposed benefit on running them backwards? is that what you are getting?

Well I know that depending on how the tire is built, they can delaminate if they are run backwards. Most directional street tires don't have a directional carcass so they are fine. Some track oriented tires have a directional carcass and will delaminate when run in reverse.

Just seeing on these particular tires on how they are holding up running backwards. Although, if you didn't run them backwards for very long you wouldn't be able to determine any adverse effects.

Dreaded time of the year here in Toronto where my car is being stored in a month for winter I store the car on winter tires to make sure I dont get flat spots on my summer compounds.

Might be one of my favorite E90's out there. Definitely getting me excited for when I pick up mine. Especially because I wanted to do black/silver wheels but wasn't sure. I did a render of how I'd spec it. Different wheels maybe.

Nice color combo on the wheel...Almost had my wheel done by Coby a while back but backed out after I noticed the fabric over running the rear trim of the wheel. Asked if he would correct it and his reply, "thats how it will come",.. not acceptable

curious to see the wheels on the car... I feel like the centers would look better in a gloss finish of some kind

Little Teaser


Just got out of the shop for a full brake job. Car is filthy and I just snagged a quick picture of it for an update

Need to adjust some small suspension bits, get the chipped front lip replaced with a GT4 splitter and get some side skirt extensions.

Still a work in progress, should be finished up soon, very happy with the way the wheels turned out.

More pics when its all finished
