Question Perfect Height on ZCP's

Hey guys,

For all those on OEM ZCP wheels, what's the perfect height?

Currently on KWV3's- and actually think I'm TOO low. I think there needs to be a balance between looks/and performance.

Where is that balance?

Guy's post up pictures of your M's on coils- or springs rocking ZCP wheels please.

Thanks!

Guess this is subjective?

I've been told that 6" in the front rocker panel to the ground and 6 3/4" in at the rear rocker panel would be a good starting point. From there you can adjust for looks or driving style. Starting with that number then having the car corner balanced would set the track height based upon performance at the cost of asthetics.

I like the Eibach pro kit with 15/12mm spacers look

On the E46 M3, a good rule was 13" Rear 13.5" front
That is from the center of the wheel to the fender.
