E92 on 19x10 Square ZCPs

In the spirit of keeping her OEM+, I threw on a pair of rear M359 wheels on the front axle I absolutely love it! The turn in is simply monstrous and they fill out the fender well perfectly.

Here are some photos of the car on 19x10 ZCPs wrapped in 275/30/19 PSS all around.
  • Rears are using a 10mm spacer, none up front.
  • This size sits 99% identical to the stock front 19x9 ET31 245/35/19 and 15mm spacer setup, and is almost identical in overall diameter as well. The rear however has a bit slimmer overall diameter than the stock 265/35/19.
  • Dropped on H&R Sport Plus springs, modified top mounts and bumpstops.
  • ZERO rubbing whatsoever.
  • No fender modifications.
  • Stock camber arms/plates with front pins removed.

As seen from the front. The fat tires poking out by the bumper look so mean!

Looks great. I recall though that someone here did the exact same thing and also had spacers maybe and was slightly dropped and his fronts shattered both fenders....Careful on the dips.

Looks and probably performs awesome! Square setups really do make a world of difference in the way the car handles.

I'm curious, how did lowering the car on H&R sports alter the characteristics of the car? Have you tracked it the car both before and after the springs?

Thanks guys! I have no regrets about this decision whatsoever - except maybe the money plunked down

I don't fully recall but I'm pretty sure that person ran 265/35/19 fronts, which is ridiculously tall. I don't think it's possible for my setup to rub as it's fitment is literally identical to the stock + spacer combo that myself and countless people here also use.

Thanks man! I wasn't ever able to find the limit of the fronts on the street, so I can't even guess where the wider one lies lol. I'll be hitting Mosport on Oct 6th so we'll see how she does!

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=423572 is the setup I'm running and it's perfect for my needs.

That was the best part: not having to run any spacer up front. You can always buy new GTS wheels
