Suspension set-ups: Post pics if tucking tire

I'm looking for a coilover set-up that will allow for the very top of the tire to tuck (i.e. just a tad lower than no fender gap).

Please post pics if you run this set-up, what set-up you have (custom or not. e.g. KV V3s w/ swift springs in rear, etc), and whether you needed to set it to max-low to achieve this look. Thank you!

TC Kline Racing Double adjustable, 450lb front springs 750lb rear. Not at full low in either the front of the rear. The car sits slightly lower than this now, This picture was taken right after I installed them. Sits with no fender gap up front and just a slight tuck on the rear wheels.

I like. That is pretty low though.

Thank you, your car is clean. Nice stance. Is this a daily driver for you? How's the ride with those spring rates? Are you running linear springs front and rear? I, too, would go a tad lower on the front.

Thanks, Yes this is my daily driver. The ride is very smooth, I have not played with the shocks enough yet, they are set fairly soft. Both sets of springs are linear, the springs in my opinion could be stiffer, compared to my old E46M3 the ride is extremely soft.

Also the tire sizes are 275/30/19 and 295/30/19 with only the slightest of rub in the rear on large bumps. I have not gotten an alignment yet, but I am sure with a little bit more negative camber there will be no rub.

Thanks! Great to know. Had you considered any other coilover setup?

Yes, I was about to buy KW Clubsports. Also looked into AST 4200s, but they were more than I was wanted to spend at the time. I had TCKlines on my E46M3 and loved them, used set came available when I was looking to buy so I got them and have enjoyed them since.

Gotcha. I was also looking at the club sports. I'll check out your set-up too.

I get a very slight rub in the rear on large bumps with the 295s. However I have not gotten an alignment yet since installing the coilovers, once I do I suspect the rubbing will disappear.

Looks good! I'd go a little lower, but good to know you still can. Any pics of the front? How's the ride for daily driving?

Tracking is great. More stable at speed than OEM. The daily ride is firm but not harsh.
