Thanks for straighting me out. I thought (hoped)you might be on a stock suspension, but clearly your not. I wonder if given all those wheel/tire specs. how they would work on a stock set up ??

they should work fine. i'm not the first to run this setup. i think there's another member who installed these same wheels on his 1er with stock suspension. he posted some pics a few weeks ago. in fact, you'll be able to run much thicker tires with stock suspension if thats what you're looking for.

Rwolf, thanks for the quick reply! I have been banging my head trying to sort all this stuff out. My current setup is stock 261m's pushed out to all corners with spacers (18mm front,12mm rear) as a nube I thought it looked pretty good. Now, wiser, I want wheels that will push tires out to all corners with NO suspension mods and NO interference. I like the fact that Apex Arc-8' have a +62, BUT I like your VMRs alot better. They just look good! With the VMR 18x9.5 et50 I should be able to run 265 PS2 with no problem right? Thanks for being a good soundboard.

might be talking about me...I am running the same wheel/tire setup on my TiAg but on stock suspension. Works fine. Only difference is I have the Yoko S Drives for tires.

and thumbs up for nice wheels RWolf

Great looking wheels. Just be careful with the finish, in my experience VMR's have marked up easy. Can't beat the bang for the buck though!

Nice stance. The Performance parts and yellow brake calipers really set your car off. Good job man.
