Great additions. But why did you stay with the 245/35 in the back but change to 225/40s up front? Those wheel and tire diameters are different. Thats a 25.1" D up front but only a 24.8" in the back. Does that not upset the handling characteristics?

i wanted to do 255's in the rear, but jurian at EAS advised against it, and the way it is, im kinda glad i left it at 245 to lower the chance of rubbing


i can report back that im not gettin squirrely threw 2nd like i did with map 4 and the stock RFT's

I have 255/35 in the rear and they haven't rubbed after 2500 miles or so. There actually a surprising amount of clearance still. And I don't see why there wouldn't be. The 17" that come on a non-sport pack 135i vert have a diam of 25.2". At least that was my purchasing philosiphy.

um you have 255/35's in the rear but on what rims.. obviously its not going to be the same unless you are also running +45 9.5 inch wide wheels in the back

255 rub i have them on these wheels..if you dont want to roll fenders then good choice leaving them 245

Didn't realize you had the 9.5" on the back. I'm using the OEM wheels. Sorry to be annoying.

Paint the black pieces on the lower part of your bumper a more gloss black, it would look slick.

They look good but they seem to stick out from the fenders a bit too much.

Is it just me?
