Mark these wheels complement the look and functionality of your car very well! We'll see soon how they do at the track

Can you post pics of the rear wheel and the brake fitment you mentioned being close?
P.S - nice X3 M in the background too

Thanks guys. I swapped my front wheels this morning so they are no longer going in the wrong direction.

Well the bolts that hold the brembo rear calipers in place stick out millimeters too much and so the rear wheel technically doesn't fit. The bolts need to be machined down a few millimeters so the wheel can clear them in the rear. No problems with the front.

It's such a minor alteration and you'll rarely ever need to change the rear pads.

Couple questions:

Do you run full ducting on the street without issues? (rubbing that damages the hose)?

Is your car SC'd?

Yea haven't had an issue yet. I duck taped the areas that rub against the suspension components.

Is this only with 18" application? I've been using 19" wheels, and my installer hasn't mentioned any issue.

I'm probably more of a TE37 fan but the FIs in 18s look good, great work
