Fitment question: How wide can one go on stock camber?

Most people tend to come to me for fitment questions...but I don't know much when it comes to stock camber...

Camber is a -1.0 F (and I believe the same in the rear).
Couldn't get more out unfortunately (didn't want to pull pins)

Can one fit 18x9.5 et 22 265/35/18 18x10.5 et20 285/35/18 RS3s on a stock 100% suspension E93 M3 with only -1 camber


From my own experience, I would say yes it will fit.
I know of an individual who fit 18x10.5 et20 285/35/18 (I believe NT05s) in the front on stock suspension with stock alignment (also an e93 M3).

Any input would be greatly appreciated

Sorry that I can't help you out on your question, but may I come to you for a fitment question?

Looking to fit the following on an E92 lowered on KW V3 w/ GC camber plates. Willing to do fender work if needed

20x10 +20, 285/25
20x11 +20, 305/20

I unfortunately don't know much about 20in rims as I never researched it myself.

I do think the 305 rear will fit without an issue, as I have heard of people fitting them with 19s.

Your front seems too aggressive though....

Sorry I cannot be of more assistance with 20in specs

From my own experience, I would say yes it will fit.
I know of an individual who fit 18x10.5 et20 285/35/18 (I believe NT05s) in the front on stock suspension with stock alignment (also an e93 M3).

To start off, the car does not have -1.0* of camber in the rear, it usually has a minimum of -1.5*. Most cars are setup with -1.7* or more. I do not recommend going more negative than -2.0 on the rear. This car does not have a lateral rear grip issue, it needs more help with straight line grip.

"Can one fit 18x9.5 et 22 265/35/18 18x10.5 et20 285/35/18 RS3s on a stock 100% suspension E93 M3 with only -1 camber?"

Yes these wheels and tires will fit, however, again the rear of the car does not have -1.0* of camber. If it does, it shouldn't. Almost never does the car only have -1.0* only in the front too.

"From my own experience, I would say yes it will fit.

This does fit, but it will not work most coilover suspensions should this person choose that route later on.

oo and although I haven't updated my FS thread, my SLs are still FS. Most interested parties have stock systems, hence my question .

Sorry, I don't know the exact alignment measurements as I only know what they tell me

Safe to say if it'll work on e92/93, e90 shouldn't be an issue.

It will work on an E92/E93 just as much as it would on an E90.

Yes, exactly, hence why I said "safe to say"
