With BMW Performance suspension and factory spec'd front camber of -0.5 degrees - Less than 1/32nd inch clearance - and contact when parked facing downhill (to get a feel for how things look under braking). Not quite full lock either since I'm taking these solo.

Its too tight in my factory friendly setup

So - sadly - the 235's have to get swapped out for 225's - Which stance wise is a bit better for the car overall (slightly lower in front vs rear)

Could not be happier with the look overall - rears are great - Will post full pics tomorrow when we get the replacement front rubber on.
