18x9.5 et27 Track setup E46 M3???

Hi,

Just want to wonder 18 x 9.5 et 27 with 265/35/18 for all four corners, will they have any rub at the front?

-Current with stock suspension
-Koni with Ground Control (Do I need a Camber plates?)

Thank you!

No rubbing with ET27, no camber plate required to run with this setup.

Did anyone have picture with 18x9.5 et 27 (265/35/18) on their car? I would like to see how close they will be. Thank you!

I originally trialed CSL rear rims up front et27 but 19 inch which worked on but anything belie -3 deg camber rubbed on the arch liner and nearly in the arch

now running road and track 265/35/18 all round with no rubbing at all

front are et37 with 3mm spacers (very close to springs)

Rear are et 15 all ok

car is running intrax ik2 which helps on the front as follower springs can be shortened so bigger offset can be used which means can run any camber up front road or track


With stock suspension depending on your geo will mean to get a decent road camber you may find Tyres touch wheel arch liner or wheel arch
