Wow! Nicest 128i/125i that I've seen to date!

IMO, its SLIGHTLY too much of a poke. but only at certain angles?

Would love to know your wheel and tire specifications.

ps- nice looking residence!

Nice drop but the rear wheels stick out too much. IMHO, that is not a good look for a BMW.

thanks for feedback all.

the tyres are michelin ps3, 225/40 and 255/35. wheels specs are 18x8 + 40 and 18x9 + 45.

ill just start by saying that i do think the rear wheels and the poke looks amazing. but overall its too hectic for me, and i dont like how it the scrubbing impedes how i drive.
i wasnt actually aiming for the rears to sit like that (i wanted it to sit more like my fronts), and had intended to go with 245 to help with my clearance. unfortunately i couldnt source a matching set on the day that i needed so i just went with 255 and thought it would work haha. so it looks like ill just start with a guard roll, and then some camber if its required.

Car looks great but that set up is flat out nonfunctional.

Offset may be a little too aggressive, but can't deny that those wheels look nice, as does the car overall.

Love the wheels ... Same ones I've been thinking off. Just a tad too aggressive on the back. Before you start rolling guards etc, you might want to look at getting the inside hub face on the wheels machined back 5 or so mm. There is a guy in Brisbane that imports BBS reps and he machines the offset and stud pattern to order. I've been thinking about that.

Really not a fan of the center caps. But the rims look great. Would have them tucked a little more if possible but its not too bad.

Those tires are very full for the rim. Not that that's bad, but you could easily switch to a much smaller tire to solve your problems.

I didn't it just looks like it is because you're upside down in Australia.
