Thanks John! I think that's where I'm headed - can't wait for these wheels!

Cheers,
Bryan

Otherwise looking good. Hoping to order a square setup before the group buy cut off here.

One question. Can 245s be fit up front if I have about 1.5 degrees of camber? Thinking of doing 245 square. Thanks!
The 245/35/18 street tire would fit up front with negative 1.5 degrees of camber, as long as the spring perch is above the tire. The KW suspension would probably give you trouble if you have that suspension on your car right now, as the V-shaped springs and lower spring perch would not clear the wheel and tire. If you have suspension with linear springs, just make sure the spring perch is above the tire and there won't be any rubbing issues onto the strut.

If you are planning on putting a R-compound tire in the front, you would need a 3mm spacer in order to push the wheel and tire out from the strut tube to clear.

Local pick ups will receive an additional $35 discount in addition to the current pre-order discounts given of $100 and no shipping charge.

Not on a 1-series, but here is the wheel on the front of an e46 M3:

Anthracite 18x10" ET33 Profile #2 - Front with 285/30/18 Hoosier R6 with negative 3-3.5~ degrees camber
Anthracite 18x10" ET25 Profile #3 - Rear with 285/30/18 Hoosier R6 (rear fender roll needed)

I'm having trouble ordering. I can't get what i pick to my cart and check out. It keeps adding more wheels to it. I'm trying to get a set of "1 series fitment sizes" in anthracite, thats all. Please advice!

*Used Internet Explorer instead of Google Chrome and problem was solved. Ordered!

Don't miss out on your opportunity on the group buy for the EC-7 to be one of the first with these wheels! Pre-order closes at Midnight (PST) tonight!

Those would be a very slight stretch with a street tire, but nothing too extreme. If the tire you put on the wheel runs wider than normal, they won't even look stretched at all! The 255/35/18 on a 18x9.5" wheel is very common to do.

You've mentioned OEM Sport Springs and KW's.
I've already placed my order for the wheels. I'm now looking at suspension items. How do you think these wheels would do with the Eibach Pro-kit (Springs and strut combo)? 255s or 265s rear and possibly the stock size for the fronts. Fitment issues is what I'm asking about?

Thanks

We just opened a Dublin Service center http://www.myapexparts.com/2012/08/0...in-california/

We can source most tires, but it is cheaper if you order tires from out of state and drop-ship them to our service location. There is a discount offer listed on that page for a mount+balance that you can take advantage of.
