What offset are the rear wheels that you can fit that much rubber? And where does it rub? Fender or the fuel filler pipe on the inside?

Same diffuser.

I have no idea what the offset is. I have to take my wheels in for balancing so I will double check this.

I have 0 rubbing unless I have two people in the rear seats.

Next time you take off your wheels check where it rubs. I run 295x30x18 Hoosier R6 at the track on Arc Apex 10.5 et 27 and they rub a little on the fuel filler pipe and inner fender liner. You don't want rubbing on the filler pipe.

I'd like to run super wide on the street just for looks. Interested in what offset you have and where you are rubbing.

Nicely done up... very clean.

Trying to picture how it would look if you tinted/blacked out the tails... so that it could flow with the CF treatment on the trunk.

You, know I 1st saw your car when you didn't make it to bimmerfest saw a quick pic of it and liked what you did with the slek add ons. But the original design that you have in vision is exactly the direction I would go. Absolutely Loving the carbon scheme around the power dome as well as the csl trunk. This car is the exact definition of what Tasteful modding is all about. You put at the right mods in all the right places. Usually do not post anything unless it truly deserves it. Looks epic, very impressed!

The Japanese style of stretched tires on oversize wheels is not fitting of a BMW. Let this trend end!

1. These are NOT stretched tires. Tires on this rims are the proper size. 315/25 on 19x12 rim.

2. Car is on stock alignment.


This here, is a stretched tire.

Dude that looks so sick. I'm loving that 1M.

I can't go into the slek website. Are they still not up?
