I've only had 2 set of aftermarket wheels on this car. hardly any love. more like two one night stands.... the camber is all natural, i did not get any dialed in from a shop, hell i havent even gotten an alignment. the stretch is nothing compared to this....



This is 245 on a 12"... im a 245 on a 10" lol/

There are better looking cars for that than the 1 series.

On the other hand, you deserve credit for doing whatever you like.

Don't put a tow hook on... I know you don't care that it won't serve any function, but it will look even more stupid than it normally would for that reason.
Thanks for understanding!

I'm not going to comment on looks because you know what I think...

But I'm legitimately curious about one thing.. Isn't it actually dangerous to drive with tires that stretched? And also, if you're rubbing so bad aren't you jeopardizing your fender/bumper?

I understand that you just love being different and doing crazy stuff but from what I've read on this forum you seem to take extreme good care of your car, you don't even drive it under rain very often... So this just seems a bit controversial...

I had no problems with mine. I daily drive my car like that rain or shine. It's not as dangerous as you think. I even pushed certain turns at 100mph. Don't worry, it won't kill you.

Nice and clean look

If you don't mind me asking, what are the wheel and tire specs currently on the car? And I apologize in advance if it has already been mentioned.

*edit*

If you could also provide a side shot to show how far the wheels are in relation to the fenders that would be awesome =)

Who says I'm rubbing bad? I'm rubbing with 3 or more in the car. but since I dont do car pool im the only one driving it 99% of the time so I dont rub 99% of the time. I want spacers too. The car has been in the rain 9 times now.

Wow! That is proper! Looks amazing

+1 on the offsets and wheel specs please.

I am contemplating a set of e92 M3 18's on my '09 e82 125i, narrows only, I know the rears would never fit without serious fender modification, which I won't do and I'm just doing some comparison homework.

I bet you'd get loads of love in Germany, that look, stretched tyres etc is so german, ever seen a car show in Germany?

Awesome job dude!
