Style 197 / BBS RX 282

They fit! Barely!


The fronts are just a little too wide, so you may want to dial in some camber. I'm going to take out the alignment pins to grab that little bit of extra camber, and might get some M3 control arms if that's not enough. No rubs yet, but I haven't hit any big bumps. Stock 225/255 RE050s.

Yep, 18x8 +34 and 18x8.5 +37.





Just ordered some M3 LCAs. Going to do the alignment pin mod too. I haven't jacked the front up and tested the clearance under compression yet but it looks like it'll be close, but fine. I'd rather have some more camber for peace of mind, I'll be up on the Dragon this weekend and I find it very hard to take it easy on that road
