18x11 et 25 rear 305's in the back also.

I'm considering going to 18 x 11 et 25 in the front for a true square so I can rotate tires.

That's insane.

Confirming that 12mm rear spacers work wonderfully on my car with a square setup.

This brings the wheel out to the fender without any sort of rubbing.

I would even say that the front is even more aggressive without any spacer.

No rubbing all around with 275/35/18 PSS and Eibach Pro Kit drop.

Pics soon.

any pics before you lowered her that much? Looks amazing that way. Also, what tires have you got on it in this setup?

So I'm ordering 18x10 et25 ARC-8R forged on my E90 M3 2011 Comp Package with Dinan S3R suspension. Anyone know if you can run 275/40/18?

I will be running 3mm front spacer and 12mm rear spacers.

I definitely do not not want any rub.

Thank you in advance!

Appreciate your interest. The correct tire size is 275/35-18 if you want to avoid rubbing and keep the overall rolling diameter in check. 275/40-18 is too tall and will cause issues.

If you want a slightly taller tire, 285/35-18's can be used on all four corners. The front will lightly rub the liners at times, but the setup does work.

I ran a square 18x10 +25 ec7 setup with 275/35/18 federal 595 rsrr tires and ran a 5mm spacer up front and 20mm in the rear. My car was pretty low on kw has. Had NO rubbing at all. Tires stuck out a few mm beyond fenders. I think this was the max I could push the wheels out without rubbing. Hope this helps.

Iím running ec7 et25 square set up with kw club sports and 275/35/18. I have a 12mm spacer in the rear, and a 5mm spacer up front.

I have rubbing on the rear inside walls in the front from half to full lock. I had star specs z2s on and it rubbed slightly and I just installed re71r 275/35/18 all around, and the same issue persists, (not that I thought this would get rid of it, I just needed new tires Iím aware re71rs run slightly wider), I played with the ride height and spacer size in the front (from 5mm to 12mm.) it doesnít seem itís the spacer as it had rubbing with both.

It seems to have happened when I changed my front camber to -2.7 from -2.1. However itís hard to think it happened from just the camber as I read on the forums that for some people adjusting the camber didnít get rid of the problem. Any help? Maybe push the liners in back more? Or just manually sand them down a bit?

Iíll upload some pics in a bit.
