My not so aggressive BBS LM set up...

No special name for the finish, just a textured bronze. Tried to get a set of 255 in the back but basically became impossible, so 245's now. Had to also rise the car up all the way around as well As well as fender work and max camber settings. Specs are 18x8/9 offset 35. If anyone knows any tricks would love to hear them.















Would defiantly call these dream wheels. Been trying to get a get for the last two cars I'll had.

Got FK bump stops. 21mm ones for my KW V2's. 3 on each side in the rear got rid of my rubbing.

They look awesome mate. Makes me a little sad though... I had just installed a similar setup on my car - 3 days before it was written off... Was so happy with it... Oh well...

Mine were only Reps though...

I had similar issues with rubbing - especially in the rear. I had the fender rolled and max neg camber but I had some very square-shouldered 255s on it. Ended up having to raise it an extra 15mm.

How low are you. I have the the st's so I'm assuming the ride height adjustment is the same. Also how often did you hit that stop?

Yeah I love them. Really wanted the 255 but like the wheels more, so the tires had to go.

Hi, what's your tire setup? I'm planning to get 8.5x18 et35 all around on 235/40/18 Michelin PSS but afraid that the front setup will rub. I'm running stock suspension except for Dinan camber plate.

I'm running 225 up front and 245 in the back. I don't think 235s would work up front. My set up rubs if I hit medium bumps or dips, especially if I have a passenger.

I never did mess with the stops.

Okay. I really want to experiment with that but I'm pretty sure I would need adjustable camber plate to allow much negative camber up front. Nice wheels man! Thanks
