New wheels and a little lower. I don't know, tell me what you think.

Well I haven't been on here in a long while because of school and stuff. But anyway, I got rid of the 19" Advan RZs I had before because I thought they were just too big. So now I've got 18x8 +45 front 18x9 +48 rear or so, offset in the rear I'm not too sure about, correct me if I'm wrong. They are the same wheels that were on WHEELSTO's project 135i. Anyway today I just put some 10mm spacers up front and 5mm spacers in the rear. On to pics.







Oh yeah new steering wheel:



no rubbing yet, and it looks like there won't be any.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys I'm running about -2 degrees up front. Enough for the wheels to fit well and perform on track haha. And jzhang I do have the stud conversion but the wheel hub and spacers kinda cover them up.

Very nice, especially the garage! I'd go 10mm wider with the next set of tires. I don't trust adding spacers myself but at least I'd trust it more with a stud conversion. I'd also get the FMIC anodized black.

On seeing the first picture, my initial impression was that the rear looked perfect, whereas the front looked as if you could go out a tad more, but from the other pics, I agree, looks perfect. Would like to see a side on pic from a lower angle, just to really gauge how it looks.

Looks

I'll see what I can do in the next couple weeks, I'm leaving for school tomorrow and the car will be sitting in a parking lot, no tools, and I won't have a camera haha. I'd like to play with my setup a little more so who knows. Next set of wheels is already on my mind. We'll see. Thank you Graeme, I'll try to take that picture tomorrow before I leave.

It looks like the passenger side tires are installed the opposite way of the driver side.

Yeah, I think you've got two different directions there. Better check that out.
