My Volks are finally on!!

Well, they are finally here and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. The fitment is absolutely perfect! These are just a couple of quick pics that I took last night after mounting them. I'll do a better photoshoot once I install the KW's next week.

The wheels are Volk TE-37's with the new M3 fitment on Nitto Invos:
front: 19x9.5 - 245/30/19
rear: 19x10.5 - 285/35/19

Thanks man! I have H&R springs on right now, but I'll be selling them whenever I get the coilovers installed.

Thanks for the compliments guys! I was surprised with how good they looked on the car. Right now the car is lowered on H&R springs, but when I got home from work today, my KW's were sitting at my door step!!! I already made my appointment to have them installed on Monday!! No, I'm not running any spacers. The fitment is perfect. I'll try to take some day shots so that you can see the wheels better and some from an angle so that you can see the offset. I'll keep you all posted.

What offsets are they? I had the same wheels on my E46 M3. You need some center caps man.

I believe the offsets are:
19x9.5 +22
19x10.5 +22

lol, yeah, the center caps will be here next week. I had to order them. I think it looks kinda mean without them too though.

If you decide to sell your springs then please let me know.
