Which system you using with 10inch wide rims??

Hey,

Trying to decide on coilovers but due to lack of support in the uk it's abit annoying.
Had my heart set on kw clubsport 3-way but no ones really telling me to try what you guys have done, just telling me get proper size wheels: or get spacers but I don't want spacers.

Wondering everyone that's running 18-10 +25 (275-35-18 pss )
Which coilovers system are you using that needs no shorter springs, no Spacers just fit, balance and geometry done??

cheers

I am running Motion Control from Bimmerworld and running street wheels 19x10, 19x11 and track wheels 18x10.5 running 275/35/18. I do have Ground Control camber plates but no rubbing, no spacers, no problems.

MCS here as well. No spacer needed with your proposed wheel setup.

For 18x10 +25, if u want a flush look, u have to add spacers, fronts are ok, but rears def need some spacers. If u do not care about the look, then no spacers needed. I am running 18x10 +25 all around with 275/35 NT01s, 5mm spacers in the front, 10mm in the rear, I think it is perfect. I have KW V3 with Vorshlag camber plates and running pretty aggressive front camber.

keep in mind, kw clubsport has helper springs, so the spring collar will sit lower compare to my v3, ur tires might rub the spring collar or spring itself, so i think if u are going with kw cs, a 5mm spacer for the front is a must, just to clear the inside.

but I was hoping to budget a little less due to newborn ..


Just fitted the wheels last night and even the stock struts are only around a finger away so am guessing as long as the coilovers doesn't have the longer spring and sits like stock it will all be fine.

I want the kw cs 3-way but just don't want to use spacers. Not trying to get extra stance just want a better suspension set up.

Waiting on TC-kline to reply and will try find out if nitron or ohlins dfv will fit.

Cheers
