19x10 BMW M3 GTS on all 4 corners... Take a look

Hey guys, hope you all are having a great Sunday.

I have been receiving tons of PM's in regards to this setup and I decided to take a few quick pics for now, so I can share them with you. I promise to take better pics today with the nice weather we have here in So-Cal.


This is the first time anyone has done this, so I am pretty happy it worked out so well.

The setup is as follows:

Front BMW M3 GTS 359m 19x10 et25, Michelin PS2 265-35-19
Rear BMW M3 GTS 359m 19x10 et10, Michelin PS2 275-35-19

How does it look? This is subjective, but I think it looks great. It really brought out the character of the car more. Something about have a meaty wheel and tire on the front of the M3 to fill those massive fenders was always necessary in my opinion. The concavity on the front suits the car so well!

How it drives: Its nearly a squared setup, soon enough I will change the fronts to 275-35 as well. But as of right now, the front end grip is great. I have not experienced any loss in steering feedback or response. The car has become slightly more twitchy, but I enjoy it because it feels more athletic and willing.

There is no rubbing.

The suspension is this: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=423572

Anyways, I will let the pics do the talking now, anyone local, feel free to message me and come check it out in person. Anyone going to Mfest next weekend, feel free to find me and talk to me. I will be happy to answer any questions.

-Malek

I think you should leave the front as it is and go for 285/30 at the back.

You have me drooling over here. SPOT ON fitment. Definitely one of my favorite M3s on this forum. Meaty and aggressive-what's not to love? Get a GTS front lip!! Do you have bigger pics?

That looks great... Is it possible to achieve the same results using Eibach springs instead of H&R? You got me wanting to do the same thing as you, except I need to retrofit the ZCP suspension.

In his other thread, he said ZCP has a shorter spring pad. You can just shave it off some to get lower I suppose. I think Eibach is slightly higher though, not sure.
