Looks fantastic. It's hard to tell from the photo - but is there compression in those shots - or is that 'normal' ride height? Given your coilovers presumably drop the car a bit from stock.

Would be great if you could start a new thread and provide feedback on your setup, plus pictures of course. Would love to hear more as I contemplate where I take my 1M next.

I just mounted a 285/30/18 BF Goodrich scrub to an 18 x 10 (ET 25) apex wheel for test fitting. It looks like they will work all around. Front sticks out past fender a little more than your photos and rears fit easily. Did you try at all? Actually... Upon closer inspection, By the looks of the photos I bet you have 9.5 up front and 10.5 rear ?

Joe and all,
Thanks for the group buy. I went with the Anthracite 18x9.5" ET22, 10.5x10.5"
and Michelin Pilot Super Sport, 265/35/18 and 285/35/18, slight rub at full lock that I can live with. I still have original suspension and fender liners.

silly question i am sure, but here goes

why couldnt you run the 18x10 et33 up front and 18x10 et 25 in the rear with 275/35 tires on this car?

what problems / issues do you run into when running the same size wheel with a different offset?

for those of us without camber plates, it may make a front fitment a lot more ideal?

bad idea?

Check out this photo from our last Wallpaper Wednesday:



It is our shop E90 M3 with ARC-8's in 18x10" ET25 square and 275/35/18 Hankook R-S3's. This is the ideal track setup for this platform (as well as the 1M!) and best of all, it's a direct fit! No spacers, camber, or fender rolling required; just plug and play!

This car is lowered on B&G Sport Springs. Other modifications include an Akrapovic Exhaust and Mode Carbon GTS Variant 1 front lip.

Hi, I don´t know if this is the right thread to pos this but, can some one tell me if the ARC-8 18x9.5 ET22 and 18x10.5 ET27 will fit the BMW Performance brakes?

Thanks

Which particular BMW Performance Brake Kit do you have, is it part number 34110444769? We have not tested this any BMW Performance Brakes on the 1M with our ARC-8 wheels in the requested sizes, but if you provide the part number, we can search for a brake template to test it against the wheels in question.

Someone gave his APEX EC-7 wheels a bronze or dark gold-ish treatment.
